Robotics tournament Roboturm-2018 took place in Yaroslavl, Russia on last Saturday. It could be strange, but I was (let’s say) advisor of the youngest participant in this event. He presented his ‘Krysakan’ made of LEGO WeDo 2.0 set. His creature was not the best line-follower, but still it was line-follower.
The main thing about ‘Krysakan’ is that: it uses the only one motor for rotating separately in time left wheel, right wheel, left wheel, right wheel, etc.
After consulting with the author, I decided to publish this ‘Krysakan’ building guide.
For screenshots I used outdated but still helpful LEGO Digital Designer.
- View of assembled ‘Krysakan’.
- Gears and base.
- Additional blocks.
- Reinforcing the base.
- The main part — Motor part.
- Motor installation.
- Random blocks.
- Reinforcing motor part.
- Tail fixing.
- Seat for controller.

- Eyes group.
- Wheels and line sensor (distance sensor actualy).
- Tail support.
- Little decoration.
In the natural habitat ‘Krysakan’ should look something like this.
The program for this robot is pretty simple, but for the purpose of completeness I left it below.
Play with ‘Krysakan’ during the day only and keep yourself alive.
