Height = 95mm
Width = 243mm
Length = 225mm
Ground clearance= 25mm

12v 1.1Ah NiCd
From this we generate 22V @ 200mA, 6V @ 300mA, 5V @ 200mA, -6V @ 30mA, and -15v @ 10mA

Running time= +- 4 Hours
Top speed= 0.2m/S
Torque= ?? The robot drives up a wall and falls on its back if I allow it.

Aluminum tube and angle chassis with spring loaded swivling left and right tracks for mobility

Processor is an Intel 87C51GB 64PLCC running @ 18.432Mhz RAM= 160KB, ROM= 64KB and a Xilinx XC9572 CPLD device.

The design is a test bed for my self to see what I can acomplish. I will then apply what I learn from this design to a more functional design.

Still lots of programing to be done.
