Side project done to participate in the Design Problem Solving final assignment: Build a completley atonamous vehicle that travels upon Lionel tracks picks up an egg from one station and delivers it to another at the top of an incline. The highlights of this robot are the gear driven shaft drive, adjustable switch activatiors (the wires), and a neoprene (wet suit material) egg receptical. The egg depositing mechanisum is made of acrillic and powered by a 16oz beer can cut into slices (similar to a leaf spring) afixed under it. Only two vehicles out of a dozen acomplished the objectives and this was one of them.
