Description:

These All Terrain Robots (ATRs) are designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. The chassis is a rigid gusseted aluminum frame that is precisely fabricated using state of the art CNC equipment. The wheels are mounted on solid steel axles which are supported by two sealed ball bearings. Each axle/wheel is driven by a planetary gear motor through a chain and sprocket drive, delivering smooth reliable power. 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 wheels). See our ATR page for more details about our All Terrain Robots. If you need this robot customized beyond the provided options below, Contact us.

Standard Configuration:

  • Includes Chassis with Sealed Ball Bearings (2 per axle), chain and sprockets, etc., hardware, electronics, etc.
  • Four heavy duty IG52 planetary 285 RPM gear motors (one per axle/wheel) connected to axle by chain and sprocket (additional motor options are available below including encoder).
  • 10 inch pneumatic wheels with solid steel axles (additional wheel options are available).
  • Variable speed and direction differential drive/steering.
  • Two 12V SLA batteries with 18Ahrs of capacity providing 2-5 hours of operation depending on use (Additional battery options are available as options).
  • Includes battery chargers.
  • This robot comes complete with a motor controller (additional motor controller options are available as options).
  • This robot includes a Spektrum remote control to wirelessly drive the robot (additional controller method options available as options) .
  • This kit comes unassembled. Assembly can be selected as an option below.
  • Specifications of this configuration:
    • Drive Method: Chain drive with a 15:21 reduction (gear motor to drive wheels).
    • Axle Mount: Dual Bearing (DB) - the axles are mounted on two sealed ball bearings.
    • Speed: 500 ft/min (with 285 RPM motors, its 15:21 reduction, and 10" wheels). Different motors can be selected below to adjust the speed. Use our Robot Speed Calculator for calculating the speed with different motors.
    • Dimensions (LxWxH): 25.3 x 21.7 x 10 inches (wheel height).
    • Weight: Approximately 59lbs.
    • Capacity: Payload of approximately 50-75lbs. (selecting higher torque/lower RPM gear motors can allow payload of up to 100lbs).

Available Options:

(Selected Below)

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.

One option that is available with this robot kit is the coupling of the front and back axles so they will work together. Standard configuration is the left two motors are wired together as are the right two, which allows them to run together. While driving on rough terrain, turning, etc., if one wheel stalls or starts to spin, the adjacent motor has to do all the work. When the axles are coupled together it provides power from both motors. This option is only available in the assembly. If you wish to do the coupling yourself, without assembly, you can get the chains and sprockets here. Contact us if you need help selecting options or need a custom configuration.

This robot can be configured with encoders used for telemetry and/or speed control. They are very useful if you are planning on making your robot semi-autonomous. Our motors use hall-effect encoders.

For help selecting the encoder options, read this blog post:

Item Options - Customize
Select an option by clicking on its button. To see more details about the option select the option name, selecting 'more details' in the pop-up will take you to that options product page. Default selections (if any) are pre- selected for you. Click on the update button below to see the price with your selected options.

These are standard items that are required. They are checked and grayed out indicating that they are not optional and cannot be unchecked

These are the standard included items for this robot kit, please leave all of them selected unless you are sure you do not need them

Select the wheel and shaft set. Either 6 inch or 10 inch tires can be used. The smaller tires will yield more torque, but less speed.

Select the motors you want to use. Lower RPM motors should be used with the 10 inch tires or higher loads for the added torque.

Select the battery for running the motors. All motors for this kit require 24V. (Qty 2 24V batteries run in parallel yield twice the run time. Qty 2 12V batteries run in series for twice the voltage). The more amp hours, the longer the run time...

Select this option if you want a customized battery mount(s) that will fit the battery(ies) you selected above.

No Battery Mount
Customized Battery Bracket(s) (Add $40.00)

Select the motor controller you want to use.

Encoder Options: Be sure to read the post on choosing encoder options (linked in the description above) before selecting any of the following components.

Select this option if you want us to include an appropriate charging system with your selected robot batteries

No Battery Charging System
Battery Charging system (Add $49.90)

Select the type of RC Controller you desire to control the robot. If you are planning on using this robot with a microcontroller or similar, a RC controller is not necessary.

Select any of these optional accessories that you may want for your ATR. To buy both front and rear bumpers select both bumpers in the check boxes below.

You will get access to the manual upon purchase of this kit, or if you wish we can assemble it for you. We can also assemble the robot with the front and rear axles coupled (see description above for more details).
