This is a beefed up prebuilt of the MLT-JR Arduino Development Platform TP-220-002. We have added a 6 Degree of Freedom (6-DOF) arm to the robot platform with a Pololu Mini Maestro 12-Servo Controller (it has 6 spare channels for your future expansion). The robot is ready to ship, fully assembled and ready to run. The Arduino robot is configured as listed below. If you require further customization, please fill out our custom robot request form.
The MLT-JR is designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. It is a smaller version of our LT2 and HD2 tanks but built with the same high level of quality, strength, power, etc. This is not a plastic imported robot that will disappoint you. It performs exceptionally well for its size and is intended as a small maneuverable customizable tracked robot platform.
The robot comes with a welded aluminum chassis, wheels hubs and tracks. Each track is driven by a planetary gear motor delivering smooth reliable power. The sprocket wheels are mounted directly to the motor output shaft and an idler wheel is bolted to the chassis. The tracks are molded 4 ply seamless tracks offering exceptional strength and quality. The motor and track combination allow this robot to go over most terrain, yet its size makes it very maneuverable indoors. The robot uses differential steering (movement is based on two separately driven wheels placed on either side of the robot body. It can thus change its direction by varying the relative rate of rotation of its tracks).
This programmable robot development package includes an authentic programmable Arduino controller for easy autonomous robot control. Using the top open-source platform for robot software development, our Arduino controllers provide the stability and performance desired by those experienced with designing robots.
Included is the Dagu 6 Degrees of Freedom Robotic Arm which is made from 3mm thick aluminum sheet and uses 4x DGServo S06NF STD servos for the base and the arm. It also has 2x DGServo S05NF STD micro servos operate the wrist and gripper. The 6 degrees of Freedom allows the arm to move into many positions. This is a great entry-level arm to studying servo and kinematic movements. Coupled with the MLT-JR platform this makes a great mobile development platform with an arm!
The automation code that is on the MLT-JR(as seen below in video one) is on our GitHub. Check it out here.
This robot is equipped with powerful wheelchair motors. The default configuration has a speed of 272 fpm and a payload of up to 200 lbs. With different configurations, speed can range from 255 to 408 fpm and payload can rage from 100-200 lbs.
This 2WD robot kit provides everything needed to turn the chassis into an operational robot. The chassis supports our IG42 planetary gear motors.
