The castor ball is new in Mindstorms robots. It was introduced with the EV3 set and this is the first robot that uses it.
Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robot that we call the Five Minute Bot because it could be built in Five Minutes.
Note: If the robot is making inconsistent turns due to the floor, modify the castor wheel so it is placed further back in the construction. Thus the center of mass falls more over the tires and the turns are more consistent.
In this module we'll build the Five Minute Bot. And it's very similar to the previous one the Easy Bot. And it again has two motors and we have the wheels on the motors and we connect the motors with cables. The difference is this part here the third wheel the steel ball. And you can follow the instructions and build the robot.
