SuperDroid Robots has built many custom robots over the years. This page shows off some of the robots that we have built to make life a little easier and a lot more fun!
Of course we sell a lot of other kinds of custom robots:
So why not robots that will perform the following tasks:
Since we design and build everything under the same roof in NC, USA, we can provide these custom solutions at very affordable prices. Click on the 'Request a Quote' button at the top of the page and we can provide you with an estimate to bring your solution to life! Are you interested in building your own custom robot?

SCT-32 Waterproof Inspection Robot
This robot was custom made for a client who needed a solution to inspect pipes as narrow as 8 inches diameter.
It uses IG32 motors to drive the dual tracks that drive it. The fore and aft cameras allow the user to inspect in both directions going in, and coming out.
The robot was built to be waterproof, and while it's not rated as a submersable, that's exactly how we tested it to make sure it kept water out of the chassis.
RC Electric ATV
This is an off the shelf electric ATV that had all its electronics removed and replaced with our own to make it remote controlled.
We used a linear actuator with potentiometer feedback to steer the ATV so the wheels return to center when the joystick is released. The main drive motor is controlled using a Sabertooth 2x32 and the batteries are 2 of our lead acid 12v 12 amp hour batteries wired in series.
To make the quad look realistic we added a mannequin with all the appropriate riding gear. We hid all the mechanical components inside it to make the head tilt up and down, and look left and right. The 'eyes' are LEDs and can be turned on and off remotely. There are strobe lights to make the ATV more flashy but they can be disabled with the remote if wanted. The mannequin also has a speaker in the helmet to broadcast whatever you want it to say via a remote microphone.
Remote Controlled Snow Plow Robot
You may have seen our premier snow removal robot on The Weather Channel, MSNBC, or Lowes. This custom snow plow is a massive 6-wheel drive remote control robot. The power of this robot will allow you to plow your driveway, cul-de-sac, side walk, or parking lot while you stay warm and comfortable inside your home or business. Please check out the videos and photo gallery below.
The 6WD snow plow was a custom robot that was sold. Let us build one for you! We learned a lot building and testing this robot. We can do a lot of different variations to save some cost too. How about 4WD with a 4 foot blade? Get a lot of snow? How about a snow blower? We can even add a salt spreader on the back! Contact us today and we will be happy to help you build your own snow plow.
Remote Controlled Lawn Mower
Mowing your lawn is hard work. So why not let a robot do it for you? Sit in the shade or inside in the A/C and just drive a lawn mower around using a remote control!
One of our engineers started making these remote control lawnmowers for his own use. We thought it was pretty selfish of him so we decided to make them into kits for others to use. The main idea of the kits is to make the chassis so it was a bolt on for standard lawnmowers. We offer two syles of remote controlled lawn mowers to keep you lawn crisp and cut while you drink an ice cold lemonade inside your air conditioned home. Driven by powerful 52mm motors, your lawn is no match for these tricked out robotic masterpieces.
We sell these lawnmowers as simple remote control robots, but there are a lot you things you can do to trick them out. Several people have bought them and put sensors and GPSs allowing the mower to cut the grass autonomously. Put a wireless camera or a camera with pan and tilt on it and cut the grass from the couch while you see the video feed onto your TV. Let us build one for you! We have a lot of experience cutting the grass remotely. If you have ideas of your own, we can incorporate those too. Contact us today and we will be happy to help you out.
Custom Hydraulic Workhorse - Operation Overkill
This robotic vehicle was built to showcase the capabilities of our facility and engineering team. It has a 690 CC V twin engine with modified custom exhaust and remote start, a kill switch, and a full on board computer to host a wide range of accessories. It has a top speed of 14 miles per hour and is very powerful. It is very versatile and can drive on very rough terrain. It could be used for pulling farming equipment, towing vehicles, dredging, landscaping, or even for surveillance on rugged terrain. Recently, we built a gun turret that carries two guns, a camera for the sight, and high-power LED lights. The turret can pan approximately 460 degrees and can tilt down approximately 30 degrees and up approximately 60 degrees. The triggers and lights are controlled from the remote and the camera is viewed on the remote's LCD screen.
Currently we can mount a 5000lb. winch or bumper on the front and we can mount a trailer hitch or a bumper on the back. Other attachments could also be mounted and the fuel tank can be sized for more runtime if needed. It can be driven with a remote control or from a computer over WiFi so you can be at an offsite location and still have full control. The robot remains idle until it receives the start signal at which point the engine is started and it is ready to be driven. As always, this robot is fully customizable so if you have other uses for it we are happy to accommodate them.
6WD Entertainment Machine
What two things do all tailgate parties need? Ice cold beverages and some good music. So why not combine the two into a remote controlled platform that you can take with you anywhere you go? This robot is exactly that with a 6WD platform and a cooler with a built-in stereo system. This is a custom robot that we built for one of our customers. We provided the 6WD robot platform while he built his own stereo/cooler. He can now take as many of his delicious cold beverages anywhere he pleases and all he'll have to carry is a remote control. Be a hit at your next party or tailgate with your own tricked out robotic masterpiece.
Golf Cart Robot
Getting bored of driving the golf cart? Have someone drive it for you remotely while you are along for the ride. This golf cart is far from stock. The standard electric motor was removed and replaced with two 20 horsepower motors, driving each rear wheel independently though a custom drive train. The steering wheel was replaced by a custom designed gearbox with position feedback for a realistic remote driving experience.
Autonomous Varmint Chasing Robot (The Squirrel Chaser)
This robot is an ongoing project to make a robot that will chase squirrels, raccoons, and other varmints you may have out of your back yard. To make it even more complicated, it could even be programmed not to chase your pets. The thought is to put RFID tags on the "friendlies" that should be ignored, but that may have to be included in a future version. GPS would be required to keep it in bounds, otherwise the neighbors may complain if their animals get chased by a rogue robot. We will start with sonar as the main object detection and put encoders on the wheels so we can track how far we have travelled. Then we will add some current monitoring to look at the motor draw and make sure the motors are not working too hard. Just for some fun, we will add a methane sensor and CO sensor to see if we can scare the s**t out of the varmints. So that is the basic idea, but we will first program so that it just runs around without crashing into anything. Once we have this down we will add the chasing features. We also plan to use an android tablet so we can use the camera and 4G LTE connection to be able to control the robot anywhere. Finally, we may even add a paint-ball turret on the top for the pesky varmints who aren't scared of the robot itself.
