Hello all, I am getting back in the saddle making robots now that I am moved into my new home and settled into my new job as a technician maintaining the Fiber Optics network in Chattanooga TN.

IM BACK ! Smile

Ok so I am going to run over the general idea. I have been researching getting a robot mower and the options are sickly. They simply don't offer a full size electric robot mower for a reasonable price, at least for my pockets. Smile

Dito on what Alan just said. Welcome back. Your a creative genius and we need that around here.

Your back just in time for the new web site to launch in a few weeks and the new EZB release! These are happening times around here. Have you been peeking in and staying up to date or totally off in the real world this past year?

Good luck on the new project. Sounds very interesting. Are you building the platform from scratch or using your last Power Wheels car project to build this from?

Hey Guys ! I missed you! Yes I have been totally gone off the face of the earth lol. Once I started the new job it took some months to get oriented and settled in. It was basically like full time school. Anyways I haven't heard about the new ezb, and I haven't broken in my V4! wow. I applaud progress though!

So As far as chassis , I am considering using some parts from the truck project, but they may be too big. I will use different wheels likely for more grip , caster wheels in the front, and a chain drive to turn the wheels. I want to do that so I can keep the height adjustment. It would be awesome if I could put a servo or something on the height adjustment as well , how cool would it be to have those stripes like on a gold course! Smile

Yes, You Have Been Missed ! Welcome back. Looking forward to you new endeavor.

Your project will cause much interest at my house. My 1/2 acre would be just the right size test site for this project.
