Why is there such things as ATV's? They clearly are not an all-terrain-vehicle. I would definitely consider this robot an 'ATV' though. It can simply climb up stairs, or even go over obstacles taller than itself with ease. This robot features a very unique 'triple-wheel' drive train, mining drill, and a high-power gearbox with arm. It also can be conveniently run off of one cortex and batter! This robot is very versatile and would highly suggest it for all land-earth explorations!

@EDWARDZAHHH Yes, the wheels do. They are geared 3:1 (Torque) with 4x393 motors.

I like your rendering and animation quality. Do the wheel assemblies have enough motor torque to rotate over a large obstruction?

This is one of the most polished entries I've ever seen. Nice job.

this is pretty sweet, I want to see it built

   General Reggie on 01/12/2012

I still think that this looks really good.

From the CAD perspective, it's an impressive entry Good luck

   AlistairMunro on 01/11/2012

Superficially, sure it may be similar to mine, but if you look at the actual design and mechanics, it operates in an entirely different way.

   General Reggie on 01/11/2012

This falls under the exploration category because the description says that it should be an exploring bot. It can go anywhere.

really nice CAD and animation work !

   General Reggie on 01/10/2012

Is it similar to the last years one because it is a CAD or because it is awesome looking?

   General Reggie on 01/10/2012

This is really cool, I like the drive train a lot.
