In this lesson I would like to show you how to build a LEGO Mindstorms competition robot and tell you how we have designed the construction used in the videos so far. Surely it isn’t perfect, but it is a good start.

Winning the competition depends on a solid, robust and extendable base LEGO Mindstorms construction for the robot. Attachments are most of the time dependent on the specific mission, but a good base could save you many days of hard work when preparing for the competition.
There are three main topics when it comes to base constructions:
What is the perfect size for out robot, while we keep the constuction balanced?
What tires to use for the robot?
Where and how shall we put the sensors and attachments?
and we mention all of them in this lesson.
Feel free to use this base, explore and extend it. Get in touch with us if you do so. It would be very helpful for us :)
