The GP2Y0A21 Sharp distance sensor is a great way to add obstacle avoidance or motion sensing to your robot or any other project. With a detection range of 4" to 32" and an analog voltage indicating the distance, this sensor is very easy to use.
These heavy duty gearmotors have a rated speed of 77.5 RPM and a gear reduction of 1:84. They work great on our robots as well as your own applications. Formerly TD-016-075. These geared motors serve as excellent robot motors.
Motor Controllers take signals from a microprocessor or radio control receiver and convert it into a high current varying voltage. We carry many variations and sizes of motor controllers. We now carry RoboteQ motor controllers, some of which will take encoder inputs for speed and/or position control.
For help selecting the right motor controller review each item and their associated data sheets/manuals. For a summary of all the motor controllers and some example schematics, see our Motor Controller Support Page.
The Dynamixel MX-106R RS-485 Servo is the newest generation servo from Robotis. Equipped with an ARM Cortex M3 features a PID control algorithm and provides feedback information such as speed, temperature, position and load.
