QuickBot – A Robot Built In An Afternoon

When Rowland O’Flaherty and I started working on the QuickBot, it was already 4pm. We wanted to see how long it takes us to build a fully functional differential drive robot. The plan was to design the base in Solidworks, lasercut it out of acrylic, add two motors, an Arduino, a motor driver, a bluetooth module, and a battery and remote-control it from a laptop. Before the day was over, we had the robot driving around in the lab.
