For the FIRST LEGO League 2016-2017 Animal Allies we prepared an attachment for lifting the robot. The idea of the attachment is to show how you could lift the whole robot with a system of gear wheels, levers, and scissors constructions.
Built mainly from LEGO Mindstorms EV3 parts but could probably be constructed from NXT sets.
Here is a task for you. Using your robot, your attachment or if you are following us with the Box Robot and with the attachment for lifting: Execute the program 10 times and record on a sheet of paper, or on a white board or on a black board how many times it is successful. You'll do it a couple of times and if there is an error, you think, try to solve the error and then you continue. And then you should reach about 9 out of 10 times working. If there are errors, if there are error runs, try to take pictures, try to take videos of them. Send them to us. I'm sure they might be quite fun to watch it and to discuss, to comment on them, to give you some feedback, So, if you have a phone while doing the runs, try to even record them. And it's very useful because then you have the recording on your phone or on your camera and then you can see exactly how the robot behaves and where the error was. So, record them and send us some of the results.
