Cots bots are robots built according to the Commericial-Off-The-Shelf design principle. I.e. design using readily available, commercial products, rather than specialized, custom designed parts. For this project we are developing and testing robots that are designed according to COTS design principles.
These pages will help you build your own cots bots. The include detailed building and programming instructions for several of our basic designs and suggestions and hints for many more advanced projects.
