Building: Expert
Program: Intermediate

This Forklift can drive around and steer on carpet or hard floors, lift loads that are placed in the pallet bucket 7 inches straight up, set them gently down on top of shelves or other platforms, and take them back down.  The color sensor is used as a "warning" light to signal different operations.

You can program the Forklift to do automatic tasks using the rotations sensors in the motors and the Ultrasonic sensor on top, or if you have a working Bluetooth connection between your computer and your NXT, then you can drive it yourself by wireless remote control from your computer keyboard using this free Bluetooth Vehicle Remote program provided by Anders Søborg.  Or, if you have two NXTs, you can control it by Bluetooth with the Dial Remote Control project.
