Title: Maker: Twisted Sister RoverAbstract:The twisted Sister is a four-wheel mobile robot that can twist its front wheels to navigate the roughterrains. Each wheel is driven by a DC motor. The front wheels can be raised by a DC motor which isconnected to a worm gear system. The rover chassis is made of sheet metal cut from water jet. AnArduino robot controller is mounted on the Twisted Sister Rover. A remote controller is equipped withtwo tiny joysticks. One joystick is used to control the movement of the rover and the other joystick toused to either raise or lower the front wheels. Wireless communication is through Xbee radio modules,one mounted on the rover and one mounted on the remote controller. The project teaches the user themechanical design, electronic design, and programming. It helps the user to realized the importance ofmultidisciplinary approach to product design.
