self propeller vehicle

Postby rahulmuntha » Wed Mar 12, 2014 6:41 am

Design a mechanically self propelling vehicle which will travel at least 75cm in a STRAIGHT LINE and then steer itself off course to avoid a brick kept at a distance of 1m from the starting point.

*Initially all wheels of the car should be placed in a line parallel to the perpendicular reference axis as shown in figure.
*The car must steer left / right only after travelling for a distance of 75cm in a straight line
*Once you let go of the vehicle from the starting position, you are not allowed to externally apply force by any means.
*Use of electric/electronic components is NOT permitted

Hi - You have posted this same information in another forum, the Physical Sciences forum. We ask that you keep all your posts in one location.

To ensure you get helpful advice, you may want to edit your other post to ask actual questions for the Experts -- but you will also need to ensure you talk over what you have already done, what brainstorming you are doing, what research you have read, etc. They will not simply design a project for you.
