- IG42-SB4-T, 4WD all terrain robot platform with the following options:
- (Qty 4) IG42 24VDC 078 RPM Gear Motor with encoders
- (Qty 2) Interstate 12 Volt 8 Ah Sealed Lead Acid Battery (SLA) - 0.250 Faston
- RoboteQ SDC2160 2x20A Motor Driver with Encoder Input
- DB15 Breakout Board
- Encoder Hookup Kit
- FLYSKY FS-i6 2.4G 6CH Transmitter & Receiver
- (Qty 2) ATR Wheel and Shaft Set Pair 8mm bore - 10 inch pneumatic
- IG42 Custom Cover with 1" Aluminum Extruded Rails
- Complete Assembly with Encoders
- The following is added for autonomous waypoint navigation:
- CubePilot The Cube Orange Standard Set
- CubePilot Here 2 Precision GNSS Module
- (Qty 2) 2.4 GHz Digi XBee3 Radios
By default, this robot comes with a Here2 GNSS GPS module that provides standard GPS accurate to about 3 meters.
Upgrading to a Here+ RTK GPS system will improve the system to sub-meter accuracy. Real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning is a technique that greatly improves GPS accuracy but requires a GPS base station to provide correctional data. The RTK upgrade includes:
- Here+ RTK GPS system (base and rover GPS modules)
- Second pair of XBee radios for wireless communication between Mission Planner and the RTK base station
- Battery to power the station
- Setup, firmware upgrades, and testing

This is a 4WD IG42 Single Bearing (SB) platform that is set up for outdoor localization and autonomous navigation. The Autonomous Mobile Robot is powered by an on-board CubePilot system that's built on top of the versatile and open-source ArduPilot software suite. CubePilot uses GPS, IMUs and encoders to localize the robot outdoors while guiding it through an array of GPS waypoints. This robot can be controlled through the provided RC transmitter or ArduPilot Mission Planner. Mission Planner is a full-featured user interface that provides a point-and-click waypoint entry using Google Maps. Two Digi XBee3 radios are included for wireless telemetry between the robot and Mission Planner. Other features include robot position and status monitoring, data logging, access to ArduPilot configurations and much more.
All of our robotic platforms are designed and fabricated in North Carolina, USA and are fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics.
