Chapter 9. Project 3: Building a DiscRov... > Trash Recycling Through Bot Building

Trash Recycling Through Bot Building

Now that we know the basic control concepts behind our DiscRover, it’s time to put our robot body together, screw down our robot brain, load the control program into it, and start botin’ around. First, let’s tackle the main structure.

DiscRover’s Body

The body of our bot is nothing more than two junk CD-ROMs or CDs you don’t want anymore (may we suggest Jewel’s last offering?). To make things a lot easier for you, we’ve created two templates for the CDs you’ll need (the bottom and top platforms). You can photocopy these, cut them out, and then use them as a guide to drill the holes as marked. See Figures 9.5 and, later in this chapter, Figure 9.9.
