Mars Rover VEX/NXTVEX Hybrid with Rocker-Bogie Suspension

This is my new robot: The Mars Rover NXT/VEX Hybrid with Rocker-Bogie Suspension. The robot was built with VEX Parts and both the robot and the joystick were controlled by NXT bricks and RobotC.

The Robot uses 6 regular motors, 6 servos, a VEX Camera, and a set of Vex Lights.

The video is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vv0Zb9I6sA

Here is a new video: [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrGTG8O98f8

If you like it or want details for the robot and remote control, please leave a comment at Youtube.

New videos will be posted this week.

Thank you!!!

That looks pretty cool. You did a good job at mimicking a mars rover. Would be neat to see a video through the camera of the bot. but nice work! :smiley:

Post here, comments go here.
Looks like swerve drive as well.
Why do some wheels lift off the ground when turning in place?

There was the very first test… Some adjustments were needed. It now rotates without lifting the wheels.

By the way, here is a new video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrGTG8O98f8

Here is a photo of the remote control used to control the Mars Rover robot. All the movements, lights, and camera are activated from the remote.
