Whakatae - LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Competition Box robot
- 27 Jul 2020
This is a category only with mobile robots bases that you could directly build and use for competitions, classes or learning at home.
Second part of the building instructions for this LEGO Mindstorms EV3 competition robot chassis
Building instructions for a competition robot following the "Box robot" principle. The robot is built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and could be used at FLL and WRO.
The first part of a box robot chassis for robotics competitions. The robot is quite large and this is why we split it into two parts - to make it easier to construct it. This is the second part.
The robot is built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3, with an additional part for the walls used in the second part.
Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robot that we call the Five Minute Bot because it could be built in Five Minutes.
Note: If the robot is making inconsistent turns due to the floor, modify the castor wheel so it is placed further back in the construction. Thus the center of mass falls more over the tires and the turns are more consistent.
This is a real competition robot with three light sensors and a gyro.

Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms Base Chassis with a reversible motor
Note: This robot contains wheels that are from the NXT set.
This modification of the box robot contains large wheels. It was specially requested by you and we have it.
Modification of the EV3 Competition Robot Full with light sensors attached to the front
The goal of these building instructions is to build a simple LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot without wheels. You should then think of yourself how exactly to add the wheel. Which wheels would you use on the front? How are you going to build the third wheel? Here are for example a few recommendations on building the third wheel - 1, 2, 3, 4
Later on you can expland this construction with a grabber as demosntrated here.
This robot was built by your request. It includes NXT large wheels. The Large LEGOO Mindstorms wheels will give you a faster robot, but be careful, because it will not be that accurate.
Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robot Base with 56mm Tires, Version1. The robot base could be used in robotics competitions as FIRST LEGO League, World Robotics Olympiad and others
It sparks. It's sparkling. Well, the goal of this LEGO Mindstorms building instruction is to spark the imagination when the base of the construction is very simple. Just two motors with the brick above them and one of the most classic ways to attach them together - with angled beams.
The construction could use EV3 or NXT wheels, so chose wisely. As a robot chassis base, it is suitable for all kinds of extensions. An interesting thing is the motors are attached to each other with a frame which is getting very popular in the EV3 world.
We had a couple of minutes before starting another robot and we just came up with this robot. If you would like to build a Box Robot, but don't have enough parts this is a good construction that you could learn from. It has a frame. It has three motors. You can add attachments at the top.
This incredibly compact SPIKE Prime Box Robot is made for competitions like FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and World Robotics Olympiad (WRO). Whakatae (from Maori's word "whakataetae", which means "competitive") is long 17 LEGO units and is with a width of 15 LEGO units. In front of the wheels it has two color sensors which it uses to align. Whakatae also has two Large motors for moving and has two medium motors for attachments!
It's has "V2" in its name, because it's the second version of Whakatae - LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Competition Box robot. The difference between the two is that the first one can be built with only a Large Motor and a Color sensor in addition to the Base set, while this one needs an additional ball bearing. This provides this robot with a lot more stability and can be seen as a true upgrade to the first version.
This LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot chassis has the brick positioned vertically. Interesting idea that could be very useful.
Building instructions for a LEGO EV3 steering car. We use two large motors, so that the rear wheels will be driven independently by a separate motor. For your convinience, you can use the EV3-G MyBlock for moving the Boomer.
