These are things you need to keep in mind with your robot design. With LEGO MINDSTORMS robots, you only have a few battery choices, and only two have an effect on the actual size of your robot design. You can use replaceable or rechargeable AA batteries. If you choose to do this, you will be replacing batteries quite often during practices and competitions. Keep this in mind for your chassis design, and give yourself easy access to the batteries. 5 minutes long, you will want fresh batteries for each run to ensure consistent performances from your robot.

Also, check all your bushings to ensure that none of them are pressing against the chassis too tightly. Wheel rub is another thing to check; if you don’t put the correct spacers on the backs of your wheels, the wheels tend to slide some during practice and could rub your chassis and cause friction. 42 CHAPTER 2 ■ CHASSIS DESIGN These are LEGO robots, and parts will move around even when you don’t want them to. So it’s a good idea to give your robot a good looking over before each event to see if anything has come loose or tighten up.

Understanding the principles is important but so is experimenting. Play with the parts in your kit and see how they fit together and interact with each other. You may come up with some variations that someone has never tried before. Understanding Basic Design Aspects Designing your winning robot is going to require balancing size, power, and speed. These three principles are connected with each other; for example, the faster your robot can travel, the less power it will possess. The bigger your robot, the slower it will become, because it will require more power to move.
