ROBOTICS ENGINEERING REPORT Cost Optimization : The robot was designed with the primary goal of completing the obstacle track successfully. The cost of the robot was reduced by using only two centered wheels, which resulted in better turning for the robot. The robot design was made to be strong enough for hitting the blocks and rapid reverse and turning moves, while keeping the number of the parts as low as possible to ensure a lighter weight and faster operation. Furthermore, the front bumper of the robot which holds all sensors was designed in a way to ensure reliability and to avoid loosing any parts from it . The cost optimization for the robot can be summarized by the following : - No parts were used unless nessecary . - Any extra part has to contribute to strength of robot . - Only two wheels were used, to reduce the cost, reduced weight and better turning . - Decoration was made as light in weight as possible . The Programming Logic
