Some of our Projects


One of the projects we are developing for 2017 - 2018 is the Pioneer Robotics Platform. This robot has previously used by university undergraduates, and now children in the robotics club can learn to use it, and hopefully carry out a simulated Mars rover mission.

Rock Crawler

This robot is an all-terrain, 4 wheel drive chassis based on a mini quad bike. The drive systems use 2 wheelchair motors in both the front wheels and a single wheelchair motor driving the rear axle. The concept for this robot is to enable it to drive in any multi-terrain environment. Initially it will be radio controlled but will have a range of cameras monitoring the environment.

Granny Gadget

Granny Gadget is a Bluetooth controlled robot operated from a custom made android application. It started as an old mobility scooter, but the seat, handles and original batteries were removed. The members put a small programmable microcontroller, called an Arduino, with Bluetooth capabilities. The Bluetooth means it can talk to the tablet and vice versa. The Granny Gadget was fitted with a linear actuator to move the wheels.
