|This robot is called "The Cart" simply because it has a platform in the middle, and can be used to movethings around (for lazy people just like me. I know it only has 2 motors, yet two RCX's (the two yellow/gray boxes on the sides). That's because it is still a work in progress, and i am looking for a way to expand the capabilities of this robot. Plus, it helps with the balance.
A second verison of "the Cart" features the use of a worm gear instead of regular gears. Although it goes much slower, it can carry a heavier load. Another plus to this design is that the bottom of the "bin" was lowwered to allow more items to fit inside. It also hase more traction on the ground.
