"Make it easier to build"11/07/2018 at 07:36 • 0 comments
To make TranspOtterNG convenient to build, we've designed a custom PCB, which connects the mainboard to all its periphery.
It will connect the mainboard to the Gametrak, Nunchuk, emergency-stop, a displays and leds.

We don't want to just fix stuff but also want to improve TranspOtter and make it much more user friendly/usable. Our main improvements we want to archive are:

TranspOtterNG started with quite alot of CAD work, as the first TranspOtter was build from scratch and therefore had potential for improvement.

This build log will describes how we've build TranspOtter (1.0).
The base was made from cheap wooden boards, which where cut to size. We wanted TranspOtter to fit drinks and Euro crates, therefore our desired platform size is about ~380x580mm. To prevent the crates from slipping down, an edge was glued to the board. For protection a housing was prepared for the electronics.
For the motor mount the old hoverboard frames where cut to size and screwed to the base.
As motor driver the original hoverboard hardware was used with a custom firmware.
