The series of Rovers presented here are
my attempts to model the functionality of Rover Systems as employed
on the Sojourner and MER class of rover. Obviously not everything
can be modeled in LEGO® , and the Mindstorm/Technic range has inherent
limitations. However a quite functional and autonomous Rover can
be built using standard, (and some custom) LEGO® components which
exhibits the same mechanical and functional design characteristics
as the original Rovers.
chart below summarizes the key systems found in an exploration rover
and their application in my 'Yogi' series of Rovers.
