Goal: Keep it simple! Build a working MINDSTORMS car using as few LEGO pieces as possible.
Your finished car must be able to complete the following driving test without falling apart: drive forward for two seconds, backwards for two seconds, spin right for two seconds, spin left for two seconds.
Start date: March 1, 2017
Due date: March 31, 2017
Rules: In your submission, tell us how many LEGO pieces you used. (Every item counts as a piece–EV3, motor, wire, hub, tire, axle, beam, connector, etc.) Better yet, include a photo or list of the pieces you used. Also, show us a video of your car successfully performing the driving test.
In addition to an NXT or EV3, you may use sensors, motors, and pieces from the NXT or EV3 kits. You are also welcome to use multiple MINDSTORMS kits, additional LEGO pieces, third-party sensors, and non-LEGO materials.
