Stair Climber

The goal of this project was to design a robot that would climb stairs in a skillful, calculated and efficient manner. Climbing a set of stairs is not a new challenge for robots, in fact it is often a common obstacle used by designers to showcase the robort's skills. Another aspect of our challenge was to use two LEGO NXT robots in cooperation with each other.
