Software and Sensing:

  • Ultrasonic Sensors (5?): Maxbotix LV-EZ3 (www.maxbotix.com/Maxbotix__Buy_Now.html)
  • Potentiometers (for monitoring angle of wheels) (2): Appropriate sensors (50 K Ohm) can be bought at Radio Shack for $3.00, but their quality is questionable.

Drivetrain:

  • 4 sprocket or belt pulleys for steering wheel module
  • 2 sprockets or belt pulleys for window motor module
  • chain tensioners
  • 1" steel square tubing for frame

Elevator:

  • pneumatic cylinder for black box
  • pulleys (perhaps we can machine them ourselves to minimize failure mode)
  • axles - something very strong and short for the pulleys. Stainless or hardened steel at least.
  • cable (probably already have)
  • hinges?
  • linear actuators (aegis products)
  • u channel 3, 2 , and 1 inches

Manipulator:

  • pneumatic cylinder for scissor lift
  • metal for forks, and u-piece
  • hinges for forks?
