Robot Design

Structure Requirements


  • Locomotion: An effective locomotion/gear system, such that the robot can easily move through the maze.
  • Extinguishing: A pushing mechanism powerful enough to dispense the shaving cream.

Constricting Factors

  • Size: No part of the robot may extend beyond 12.25" in any direction.
  • Space: An efficient use of space, with all parts of the robot supported, and the sensors positioned at appropriate heights.
  • Stability: The entire robot must be sturdy and stable enough to withhold bumping into obstacles and walls.
