Introduction: All Terrain Robotic Trike Test Drive

About: Hi, I'm psymansays. I'm an engineer from California. I enjoy sunsets, and long robot test drives on the beach. More from me: http://psymansays.deviantart.com/ http://www.youtube.com/user/mobilisCruise
This is my ATRT (All Terrain Robotic Trike) robotic platform, during a test drive, today, 03-04-2009.

I have spent a while redesigning the ATRT recently, and posted a few 'ibles showing the building of some of the more interesting parts.

It features a laptop PC, controlling a slave MCU to control the hardware. To keep costs as low as I could, I used a lot of scrap/re-purposed materials and parts, and only one 12V battery, and forwent a welded steel frame in favor of a cheap wooden one.

In this video, I'm controlling the trike with another laptop PC and my client/server programs, while my awesome fiance films in the freezing cold. There are some more videos on my YouTube profile for this project: mobilisCruise
