NXT Self Parking Car

While YouTube tells us that there are many NXT robots that can park themselves between objects, there aren't so many (I haven't seen any yet) of these designs that use a steering and driving mechanism that is used in real cars: front-wheel drive and front-wheel steering.

Chapter 8 in our new book (NXT One-Kit Wonders) illustrates how to make one that accomplishes both tasks with just the front wheels.

Most of the other SPC's on the web have back-wheel drive, so I wanted to do it differently. But there is one motor left, so you could use the design and turn it into a 4WD!

Dino,
Thanks! I won't be posting close-ups though - If we did, people wouldn't be willing to purchase the book :)
