The project involves:
Following instructions to make a basic motorized vehicle which canít be steered!
Studying the motion of the vehicle and then modifying it to make it go as fast as possible in circles so that it stays near the middle of an arena without touching the sides where it could get stuck.
Designing a new concept dodgem body which would attract customers to want a ride in it.
Introduce new features to make it more fun to ride.
Make sure that the design allows for at least two passengers to be seated safely and have access in and out of the vehicle.
Extension activities include:
Design a system to allow the dodgem to attach itself to another dodgem and capture it or follow it along.
Design a collision system which changes the direction of the dodgem after a crash so that it can get out of the way and not become caught up or put out of action.
