Solar Electric Robot Chariot from Bob Schneevis


An inventor who became famous after creating the Dubya Bot Chariot has returned with an even more intriguing device - a Solar Electric Robot Chariot.

In the new design developed by the professional machinist Bob Schneevis, the robot chariot replaces the chariot driver. The invention was presented at the Maker Faire Bay Area.

By harnessing solar power the robot is able to move its two front legs to which rollerblades are attached with the back featuring two large wheels that keep the chariot rolling. It would be worth noting that solar energy is the main source of power for the machine.

The autonomous movement became possible thanks to cameras that ensure a safe and eco-friendly ride around a city.
