you came back and landrone came back too! now use two nxts and more intelligent, nice job!


Thanks! Remember five stars for more :)


Btw I removed the moveable ultrasonic sensor because I could never always get it centered. I found that it would detect obstacles to the left or right but completely miss the obstacle right in front! Entirely defeating the purpose of having it navigate out of the way of obstacles safely.


like it, 5 stars


I built an rc wheel chair but it can only move forwards and turn.


JStendel, where did you get those wheels? I've been looking for them for a while now, and here they are! Please tell me where you got them! Thank you — MindstormsAddict


You should win for the research Section of the challenge!


If you mean the ones for the guide wheel, I'm sorry but I have no clue where I got them. :P they were probably in some kit but I wouldn't know which one. Sorry. :(


Oh, ok. Thanks anyways! But does anyone else know where I can get those wheels?


I like it! You could try the same concept w/ the sensor inputs but on an omnibot chassis! MindstormsAddict: You could probably get that wheel/tire off a 8258 crane truck or a 7291 street rebel.


legowave440, thanks for helping me finally find the wheel! That probably took you a while to find, so I really appreciate it! :D


I have some of those wheels, I got them off the blue creator motorbike.

This robot Velocity Landrone 2.0.1, is a prototype for an inexpensive Lego Mindstorms operated wheelchair. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ An article written by the parent of a physically challenged son, Mac, inspired me. In the article, she explains that she wants her son to be able to be as independent as possible, especially in school. Being able to move himself around with a mechanical wheelchair that knew where to go and responded to voice commands would be a major part of that. Such a wheelchair that could find its way around is called a SMART Wheelchair, which cost around fifty thousand dollars. Here is where I thought a practical application of Lego Mindstorms would come in handy. It would offer a solution to the problem at a fraction of the price. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This robot presents an innovative concept to create an intuitive wheelchair at an affordable price.
