Juggernaut was designed for the purpose of competing in the RSSC line fetch contest to follow a line, locate pickup and return a Soda can to the start. Juggernaut functioned flawlessly and earned first place in the event.

In 2003 the RSSC sponsored yet another event involving a line maze and obstacles, the object was to navigate the maze stopping at predetermined waypoints while avoiding obstacles. Although Juggernaut operated flawlessly during the competition and earned a second place and (2) third place awards.

Juggernaut is constructed from 6061 sheet aluminum hand machined using a scroll saw, bench top mill and metal lathe. The wheels were turned on the lathe and machined on the scroll saw.

This was my second attempt at using a palm device as the master controller communicating with the Cygnal 8051 micro controller that handles all of the motor and sensor control. This time I used a Visual language for the Palm device called Pocket Studio; Pocket Studio is a Pascal derivative and functions much in the same manner as Delphi.
