|Using the Java applet on the right you can pick out the differnet components of the ClimbBot|
Arm One and Two use the Drive Wheels along with the Drive Axel to move up and down as well as forward andbackwards.
The Lego RCX brick simply runs both motors at a constant speed.
If the Drive Axel is removed then the Arms move indepentently of each other and we easly loose the 'hand over hand' action, leaving us with a 'pull up' action (useless).
|Here you can see all|
around ClimbBot and the
arms in motion.
