I founded Collaborizm to solve a critical problem I faced in college...the inability to find new teammates and collaborators.
STORY

Project Overview

The idea is to build a rough terrain robot similar to RHex.

Current Task in Progress

Not yet started.The first thing i would like to start with is the structure.

Project Steps

  1. Build the mechanical structure carefully.
  2. Position the motors
  3. Program using Arduino for motor control
  4. Test
  5. Add additional features like camera, determination of location of robot using GPS in case of large distance access etc.,

Where I Need the Most Help

Mechanical design
Arduino programming
Getting images from the camera on the robot either using Wifi or some other means

Why I’m Passionate About This Project

I got interested in this project on seeing the video of RHex.
Also my teacher inspired me to take it up.
