Some days, I really love my job. That is the mechanical parts for 8 little teaching robot chassis I quickly designed, which will be used for, among other things, a late-in-the-semester EE281 lab where students develop their own line-following state machine and PWM motor control. Nice little Tamiya modular platforms with infrared reflectivity sensors to replace of the horrible, flaky, ten year old toy trucks with de-soldering braid brush sensors that are currently used. I will be recruiting folks (preferably undergrads with an interest in robotics) to assemble sometime next week after the rest of the parts get in.
