RileyRover - EV3 Classroom robot design

This is my simple EV3 robot design.  It is very quick to build, uses very few pieces and has interchangeable attachments.  This makes it very useful in a classroom setting.  My Classroom Resource book - Classroom Activities for the Busy Teacher: EV3 utlisies it thoughout all the lessons.


If you do end up using this design in class, please let me know, I love to hear how far and wide throughout the world my design travels :)

Huge thanks to Bill Bourn for taking this design and importing it into LEGO Digitial Designer.  Download the .lxf file here -> Kee_s Riley Rover bot EV3 with gyro over drive axle.lxf


If you have the EV 3 Home Kit (31313), then Joe Meno has adapted the RileyRover into the RetailRover which utlisies the parts of the EV3 Home Kit.  Download it here

I'm going to share this with my lego club this evening. On page 21 and 22, is the color sensor upside down?

Great design! We are using the Riley Rover, teaching elementary school kids robotics in preparation for entering FLL.

Hi Damien,
I have had three 2 hour sessions so far with my 4-H LegoBotics Spin Club utilizing your "Classroom Activities for the Busy Teacher:EV3" with great enthusiasm & success! Thank you so much for creating such a fine introductory program The kids are 9-15 years old. I added a poker chip challenge to the "Help I'm Stuck" chapter that really got the kids excited. After testing their programs we placed all the robots on the 4'x8' field with a poker chip laying on the screen of the EV3 brick. We then set the robots in motion with the goal of minimal obstacle impact including with other robots. When the chip fell off that robot was removed from the field until there was only one robot left that was declared the winner! The activity really drove home the importance of reduced speed and less rapid changes of inertia. They also made it quite fun by adding robot sounds in the loop when obstacles were encountered! I'm having as much fun as the kids and I'm a 60 year-old retired chemistry/physics instuctor!!

Thank you for this, my group of 10 and 11 year old first-time robotics girls were struggling to make something that could go with a lever. This solved our problem and got them working together on design modifications
