Simplifying the Chassis

A project log for HAL-e Robot Kit for Kids

A kit that demystifies robots for children using first assembly, then sequential programming.

The kids who had tested HAL-e’s earlier iteration were often frustrated by the chassis having so many extra holes. Indeed, most robot chassis we looked were designed for many different robot designs at once. When we designed our own chassis, we made sure to have minimum number of holes and clear labels in order to lessen the confusion. A main goal of this project is to minimize frustration by keeping the robot at an elementary school, not electrical engineer level.
