🚗 Motorized Sumobot 🚙
This is the Norfolk.js motorized version of Pawel's Sumobot-jr design that we put together for NodeBots Day. The main change was to the laser-cut side pieces to support gear motors (inspired by Markus's sumobot) and the laser-cut wheels have been replaced by rubber wheels. To make this beginner-friendly, we use a motor shield for wiring the motors to the arduino. However, the bot chassis design can support other motor drivers and wiring strategies.
