This robot kit consists of the 2WD Robot Chassis and provides all the necessary parts to turn the robot chassis into a operational robot. For details about the chassis, see the 2WD Robot Chassis item page. The robot is shown assembled with optional battery and mounts, PWM motor controllers, and IG32P 190 RPM motors.
The standard items and options are listed below. They are listed as links and can be clicked to view further details. We offer many different motors, motor controllers, batteries, etc. so you can configure the robot to your exact needs. The weight of the robot, its capacity, speed, etc. depend on how the robot is configured. The item details of the options listed below will specify weights, sizes, etc. This robot platform is a skid steer robot (left and right wheels are slowed down, stopped or reversed to turn). Since it has to skid to steer, friction is the major contributing factor for sizing your components. The more the robot weighs, the harder to turn. The higher the friction coefficient (deep grass, carpet, etc.), the harder it is to turn. The lower RPM motors have lower speed, but more torque for easier turning. The default options listed below are what we recommend as a good starting point. Contact us if you need help selecting options or need custom configuration.
These heavy duty gear motors have a rated speed of 78 RPM and a gear reduction of 1:84 with a 1:1 right angle gearbox. These geared motors feature encoders and serve as excellent robot motors, but work great for other uses.
This is a pair of solid core foam rubber tires with steel rims and a 5/8" steel shaft, 6mm bore. They come as pair (2 wheels, 2 shafts and hardware).
