please send email to the "Feedback"
address on the main page and I'll add the team name.
2007 Southern Idaho Regional
One Eyed Martians. A nice, well-built rover.
The ramp is lowered and then the sweep pushes rocks up the ramp
and into the holding area. A rover in the 2005 Boise Regional had
a similar setup, but its ramp and sweeper were controlled by one piston.

I think there is a second
motor under the blue Legos that drives the wheels on the far
Bamors. This rock collector has good ideas not seen on other
rovers. The plastic paddle would push the rock onto the silver
ramp. Then the arm would lift both the paddle and ramp and the
rock would slide into a storage area.
Las Estrellas de Marte
design. The popsicle stick door swings to the side and pushes the
rock onto the plastic sheet slung between the wheels. It doesn't
have much ground clearance though.
