Description:

This mecanum wheel Arduino robot platform is designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. This robot kit includes the CNC cut 4WD base intended for our IG32 gear motors and Nexus Mecanum wheels or omni directional wheels. The chassis is cut on our CNC plasma table and bent on our CNC break press. It's made of 3/32" thick Aluminum. The chassis also has mounting holes for four PWM motor controllers. It is designed so all our planetary IG32 and IG32P gear motors with or without encoders. It is NOT intended for our right angle IG32 gear motors. This robot platform is specifically designed for direct driving with Nexus omni or mecanum wheels and hubs (listed in the options below). See our vectoring robot page for more details. If you need this robot customized beyond the provided options below, send us your requirements.

This is a programmable robot that uses Arduino microcontroller technology, enabling you to develop an autonomous robot. This robot comes with example code so you're able to run the robot once assembled. Another option we offer is an RC controller to be able to drive this robot manually. If you select one of the RC controllers, download the arduino code for RC override from the GitHub. You can also select for us to assemble it in the options below. If the assembly option is selected we will assemble, wire, program, and test the robot. It will come ready to run out right of the box.

Standard Configuration:

  • IG32 Mecanum Vectoring Robot Chassis.
  • All the electrical connectors, wires, etc. and hardware needed to get you started.
  • 5V switching regulator board.
  • Mecanum wheels and hubs. (Qty 4 ea).
  • IG32 12V 104RPM gear motors. (Qty 4)(different motors can be selected in the options below).
  • PWM Motor Controller 16A 5.5-30V (Qty 4). One per motor.
  • Interstate 12 Volt 7.2 Ah Sealed Lead Acid Battery (SLA) (different batteries can be selected in the options below).
  • Battery charger.
  • An upper deck. (if you don't want the upper deck, you can remove it in the options below).
  • Unassembled, Manual included. Or you can select full assembly and we will assemble and test it for you and include a sample program loaded onto the Arduino.
  • Specifications of this configuration:
    • Drive Method: Direct drive.
    • Axle Mount: Direct mount (DM) - the axles are direct mounted directly to to motor output shaft.
    • Speed: 110 ft/min (with 104 RPM motors and 4" 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): 15.4 x 13.4 x 4 inches (wheel height, without batteries).
    • Weight: Approximately 13lbs.
    • Capacity: Payload of approximately 15 lbs. (smooth floor).

Looking to extend the functionality of this robot? We have a comprehensive line of Arduino shields that can be added to this platform for additional functionality.

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, batteries, etc. so you can configure the robot to your exact needs. The weight of the robot, its capacity, speed, etc. depends on the robot's configuration. The item details of the options listed below will specify weights, sizes, etc.

  • Motors
  • Microcontrollers
  • Drive Batteries
  • RC Controller
  • Battery Chargers
  • Upper Deck
  • Professional Assembly

We also offer the option to control this robot with a Spektrum RC controller. If you'd like this option select one of the RC Controllers listed below and download the arduino code from the GitHub. We have posted code that will work with Sabertooth motor controllers. PWMs can also be used but the code will need to be altered slightly. To control it manually, you can drive forward/backward and vector with the right joystick while the left joystick does pivot turns.

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.
