For a school design project, I am supposed to design an RC soccer playing robot that can drive, and pick up and shoot ping pong balls at a goal wall.
The material is given, and includes:
- 2 dc motors
- sheet metal
- various shafts, rods, tubing, wiring, etc
- various gears and pulleys
- plastic and foam sheets
My main question, what would be the best/most efficient way to use only 2 motors to drive, steer, pick up and shoot?
My group and I are all pretty new to robotics/mechanics so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
