Simple Miniature Racing Car for STEAM Learning

TIME REMAINING: 4 days, 20 hours
Description:
We have a few STEM / STEAM (science and tech courses for kids) programs we are designing for, including a miniature radio controlled race car, and a miniature radio controlled racing drone. They should run off of a single rechargeable A or AA battery, and we have the basic body shape. Need designs for the computer controllers (Arduino or similar), software, simple radio remote control and system, electric motor systems, and drive systems engineered. We have the basic frame shape. We are looking for simple, field serviceable designs that kids can take apart and put together and use to learn these technologies.
Just like everyone, we want it ASAP.
What can you offer us?
Wants:
Size; About 8 CM, 3 inches long
Shape; Based on our logo shape
Battery; A single A (7 hao) or AA (5 hao) rechargeable
Car; Steerable front wheels, single motor rear wheel drive
Don't Wants:
Cutesy little talking toy.
This is a fun but serious learning platform, not a novelty product.
We want kids to learn about software, radio control, electric motors and drive control systems for electric cars, and all that plus aeronautics for drones. We will also teach them good sportsmanship as we compete with the final products.
Ask for Sample:
If you can produce a working sample, we will pay for it at a reasonable cost.
Software:
  1. Simple open source is fine, we want to teach it to kids

Hi,
Please find the racing drone concept 1 files for your reviews.
I did only mechanical part
Thanks and Best Regards

Will you be using a raspberry pi or an arduino, or will you be using a custom mother board. The size may change with the type of board you use.

Hi,

If you dint mind, I reckoned better to split this prize/project contest into halves for the following;

1. Electrical/Electronics = Design for the computer controllers (Arduino or similar) software, PCBA and its component.
2. Mechanical = Design for toy car plastic housing enclosure (top cover, wheel and chassis).

Trying to get the project done more easier on both parties. Just a though!!

Do you only need the cad design or all the circuit diagram, code and all those stuff also?

Hi,
If you want to have serious designs then please make it prepaid.

Ashik, thank you for your interest. Also please take a look as we are posting two separate contests with separate prizes. One is for a small RC car, and one for a drone.

Yes, Solidworks will work for us. We will want JPG output also to be able to show to our staff in our office.

Will a CAD model from Solidworks be accepted?

Simple Miniature Racing Drone for STEM / STEAM Learning
We have a few STEM / STEAM (science and tech courses for kids) programs we are designing for, including a miniature radio controlled racing drone. They should run off of a single rechargeable A or AA battery or rechargeable easily found (commonly available) battery.

Design of a new Robotic Character t
Hi there, We are a small robotics startup that develop robotic toys. While we are able to do all the mechanical, electrical and software development, we do not have any artist onboard to make our robots look fantastic! So we are looking for someone with expertise in 3D modeling and product design. This is not a one time gig, we are looking for someone we can collaborate on the long term. Your job will be quite simple: We will provide you a CAD model and you will have to design around it to make it look nice according to our directions. For each project, we will expect to first see some sketches (you ll have 1 week for that) and then once we have reviewed them and pick one, you will be designing the 3d model (2 weeks for that). The first project will be to design the shell of a humanoid robotic toy. Again do not send anything till we have picked someone and provided CAD model and design directions. In order for us to pick someone we will need two things: - First, the more robot design you have in your portfolio and you can show us, the better we can appreciate your style and capacities. - Your hourly rate or per project rate. We are quite in a hurry to start the first job, so please reply quickly. Thanks!
Training Ball & Sci-Fi Env
I have two models that need to be made for an indie game I'm building. The first is a simple orb thing that levitates and will shoot lasers. The second is a temple training like facility. Orb: I'm creating a game that needs a sci-fi training orb that'll levitate around, and fire lasers. I've done a very crude sketch (attached) to help you understand what I'm envisioning. Temple Environment: It should feel like a wide open space that also seems a bit "sacred". I've provided another crude drawing of what I'm envisioning. I have a couple of tweaks about it though, I'd like the ceiling to be much higher and there to be pillars holding on the lights instead of them just hanging on the wall. And the windows to be about 75% of their thickness and taller.
