The Experimental Robot Platform (ERP) has been a work in progress since June of 2007. Why? Well, it’s because the maker will always be making improvements to the design, even if it did win judges choice award at MOBOT 2008. Check out the link for a nice build history, from its initial CAD prototype, to the latest iteration pictured above.

The goal of this robot is to give me a platform that is upgradeable and customizable so that I would not need to build a new robot chassis for each new idea I want to try out. This robot will never be ‘finished’, as I’m always modifying and improving it.
