Castor Bot
Building: Intermediate


This robot uses two-motor drive and a pivoting castor wheel to allow it to turn easily on either carpet or hard floors.  Building variations are shown to accommodate either the standard AA batteries, or the NXT Lithium Rechargeable Battery Pack.

Castor Bot can be used as a simple turning vehicle or as a base for other projects.  It also serves as a good robot to help learn how to use the Move programming block, because it can make all kinds of turns easily.  Two sample programs are included that demonstrate different kinds of turns using the Move block.
