These build instructions for the CE Race Bot start with a simple, single sensor robot the progressively add an extra light sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, then change the geometry of the robot to better navigate the Robocup Rescue course. The build instructions are to support the series of talk-through that start with basic programming and take you through all the steps to building an advanced robot that will complete the Robocup Rescue challenge.

Once you have built the base CE Race Bot v00 for "Riley Rover Rescue", you can add an additional colour sensors, add an ultrasonic sensor or upgrade the robot by adding an omni wheel. These changes can be done in any order and are independent of each other (for example, you could add an ultrasonic sensor without adding a second light sensor).
Build instructions by Evan Bailey.
This base robot can be built using parts from the Lego EV3 Education Base kit
Then add two colour sensors...
The only additional parts that aren't included in the base kit required to built this robot is an EV3 colour sensor
Add the ultrasonic sensor...
This robot additional can be built using parts from the Lego EV3 Education Base kit.
Add an omni wheel...
This omni wheel will give your robot enhanced maneuverability and make it capable of completing Primary Rescue once additional coding is completed.
Build instructions by Peter Hinrichsen.
Simple single sensor robot built using only the parts that come in the NXT Educational kit.
Then add an omni wheel...
You can optionally replace the skid plate that supports the back of the robot with an Omni Wheel, available online.
And two light sensors...
Add an extra light sensor to the CE Race Bot v01 to improve line navigation, and make turn-on-hint more reliable.
Then the ultrasonic sensor...
Add the ultrasonic sensor to allow it to detect the water tower and can.
Fix for the speed bumps...
Completley redesign the CE Race Bot so it will more reliably navigate the speed bumps, bridge and see-saw. (This is an dvanced robot so make sure you have completed all the earlier exercises before attempting this bulid.

David Purdue's Lego Mindstorm Printer, with CE Modifications
The Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 printer, originally published by David Purdue in his book Unofficial LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Inventor's Guide and modified by Club Engineer ( you should buy the book, its brilliant and a much better guide than the build instructions here.)
The Club Engineer Scanner v01
The Club Engineer digital scanne, build from the Lego Mindstorms 2.0 Educational kit, or retail kit with an additional (optional) touch sensor. Coded with NXC, this project will scan an image on an A4 sheet of paper, draw the image on the NXT screen and save it to file for printing or viewing later.
