Transporter Challenge 2004 Robot (Scratchbuilt)




The Mechanical Engineering Department of Bradford University holds a yearly competition to transport a weight up a ramp. The students are encouraged to obtain sponsorship from external companies, which is how I became involved. There are numerous design constraints, like a 100 budget and size limitations, but students are also judged on a presentation and written report.
60 hours worth of design and build were put into the robot, nicknamed 'The General', and it was the only machine able to move up the ramp whilst carrying the 2kg weight.
