We design, develop, support, and sell robot parts, kits, platforms, and custom solutions. This is a general support page to help introduce you to our company, our capabilities, resources, and much more. Please follow the links below to familiarize yourself with our site. If you need help with anything please contact us through our contact page, live chat, email, or give us a call and schedule a visit to our 10,000 sq. ft. facility.
We have been designing, building, and selling robot and robot parts since 2000. Our staff has experience way beyond the companies 13 years of experience. While our specialty is custom robots, we have everything under one roof to produce the robot or mechantronic providing rapid and affordable robotic solutions. Of course we also stock over 800 products on our online store too, and our inventory is ever-growing. Since our inception, many companies have come and gone; we have seen major events including terrorism attacks, economic downfalls, etc. and have always prevailed with great products, engineering, and customer support. Let us know what you think!
Building your robot is a fun and exciting experience. Sometimes though, it can be a little frustrating when you are not sure about a certain aspect of the build. This is a step by step guide to getting your robot up and running. We will go over some robot basics, help you with your part selection, and give you some assembly advice.
These robots are for the serious robot enthusiasts. They are larger than the Trekker, but utilize many of the same sensors and controllers. The robots can house a variety of wheels, motors and frames. The different wheels will allow All Terrain travel. The motors can be regular size or super-sized for climbing over rocks. The frames are laser cut aluminum and/or acrylic with predefined holes for OOPics, speed controllers, cameras, sensors, etc.
The RP2W is a telepresence robot, which allows professionals in different geographical locations to teleconference and establish a remote presence via a mobile robot. Real-time video allows for detailed viewing and audio of the surroundings. The robot allows mobility within the workplace. The robot has two- way video, two-way audio, contact and non-contact sensors, and battery monitoring. All of this is accomplished using wireless technology. The robot is controlled from a remote location using a personal computer and a gamepad.
Many robots, such as the Trekker, can be driven by modified servos. To drive larger robots you need gear motors. Gearmotors can not be driven directly from a microcontroller like servos can, so you need motor speed controllers.
We have lots of sensors. Sensors let the brains of the robot know what's going on in the outside world. Listed below are support pages for many of the sensors we carry. Follow this link for our complete line of sensors. Here are links to the various sensor categories within our online store.
