The HD2 is a large tracked robotic development platform designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. It has the same chassis we use in our tactical robots. It is very rugged and can carry up to 100 lbs. of additional payload depending on the motors selected. The large platform allows the robot to easily climb obstacles, ascend stairs, and drive over most terrain.
It's a tank, so we built it like one. The wheels are supported with inner and outer race sealed ball bearings (the wheels are NOT cantilevered or direct driven from the gear motor shaft). The wheels are driven with powerful IG52 gear motors a heavy duty #35 chain. The chassis is made from aircraft grade aluminum. The design uses all CNC cut parts with mortise and tenon design for precise alignment and mating of the parts. The frame is ribbed and gusseted making it very rigid. The aluminum is welded together for a solid chassis. The robot is enclosed and can be sealed to make it water tight. We have designed this robot to be as simple as possible without compromising its strength, durability, or functionality. You can get more information on the HD2 on our support page.
The tracks and wheels have been modified from the original design to make this robot even more robust. The wheels are an assembly made from a 1" thick high strength rubber center piece with timed teeth that is sandwiched between two black Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyurethane (UHMW) outer pieces. The treads are CNC cut to have timed holes that match the timed teeth of the wheels. The outside edges of the tracks have guides to ensure proper tracking. The idler wheels have also been modified to be a an assembly of rubber and UHMW to add further stability and tracking of the treads. The result is a much hardier track and wheel system that is more tolerant to changes in temperature, speed, debris, etc.
This is a very large and heavy package. The price includes building a custom wooden shipping crate. This is a large package and will have to ship freight. We will contact you to inform you of the additional shipping costs.
This kit does not include a microcontroller, sensors, etc. Some basic control packages are listed. See our HD2-S for a complete tactical HD2 solution. See our Treaded HD2 Support Page and our ATR support page for more information.
This is a custom tank that we built with powerful wheelchair motors. The platform has 6 inch wide treads allowing this robot to navigate the toughest terrains.
This complete inspection robot package includes a RunCam2 camera and high power LED lights. It records in HD 1080p. This is a rugged treaded robot platform for inspecting hard to reach areas such as crawlspaces and attics.
2WD self balancing robot! This kit is a perfect plataform for learning Arduino, PID control, serial communications(Serial, I2C, SPI), PWM signals, IMU filtering, etc.
