This is a tutorial on how to modify the Tamiya Bulldozer to be driven by modified servo
s rather than the DC motorset. The software controlling this robot is EZ-Builder
The Tamiya Bulldozer Kit is a favourite amongst robot builders. There is only one problem with the kit... It is powered by DC gear driven motors, yuck!
This project demonstrates how to modify the bulldozer kit to use modified servo
s in place of the DC motor set. The modified servo
s provide greater accuracy of speed control. They are also pretty strong without needing to move quickly.
