Nathan VI - The Cannon

My friend Ned built this while he was visiting from Denver. He said it looked like a cannon so hence the name. The picture on the bottom pretty much explains the drivetrian. Ingenius really. This robot could turn. That is an ultrasonic sensor on the top although we never did anything with it. An omni wheel on the front let us turn really really fast. As you can see from the top, the battery didn't really have a place to go, so we just put it anywhere. The motors are connected to gears connected to the wheels. It was good placement, very solid chassis.
