[MOCs] Mindstorms NXT European Semi Truck, and American Semi Truck wit

Recommended Posts

OK, well the American Semi truck is a very recent MOC, but I made the European one quite awhile ago, and just never got around to uploading the pics, so.. ....here they are.

European Semi truck specs:

  • Front wheel rack and pinion steering
  • rear 4WD
  • only uses 2 motors, so you could build a trailer and add a/some motorized function(s)

Pictures

Here is the overall model

And some pics of it without the studded assemblies hiding the NXT brick.

And that is it, now for the American style semi truck, and... ... the trailer with grabber

Specs of American Semi truck, and trailer (with grabber)

  • [Truck] Rear 2WD (It's on not the back axle, but the axle before it).
  • [Truck] Opening hood.
  • [Truck] Ultrasonic sensor for obstacle avoidance.
  • [Trailer] Motorized grabbing arm controlled by button hidden on either side of the trailer.
  • [Trailer] NXT Brick right, and left buttons control steering for the truck.

Now the pictures, truck first.

Back view of the truck (revealing that the NXT brick is in the trailer, to keep the truck smaller so I would have more pieces.

Very nice designs!

I see you have two NXT'S?

An idea would be a production line robot arm.
