To prevent load from slipping on incline
« on: October 02, 2011, 05:58:20 AM »
I need to move my bot over a slope of 17 degrees with a load on it. Can u suggest some possible ways of preventing the load from slipping off the robot when on slope. I can't make a permanent embankment around it as the load has to slide out of the robot later.

Put a servo behind the load, and raise it when going up the slope. You can later lower it when you need to slide the load off.

How about keeping it simple and adding straps or a rim/bucket style design to the bot?

Consider the above image.... introduce an incline of 10-15 degrees on the carrier part of your robot. that way when it will be climbing, load will still be almost parallel to the ground... when descending , the load will be stopped by the front rim.
(yes i drew it on paint, and i'm not much of a paint pro  :P)
on a side note. 17 degrees is not much of an incline though, if there is sufficient friction between your load and robot surface, it won't slip.
'crazy' is the new hype! =)
