This is a rugged frame designed and fabricated by SuperDroid Robots in NC USA. It's made of 1/8" thick aluminum to accept our IG42 planetary gear motors. This is our 2nd generation ATR frame and wheel housing. We took our previous design that had separate motor housings that mounted to a base and made it all one piece. We also stretched it slightly, adding the ability to make it 6WD.
The aluminum frame is fully gusseted adding greater rigidity. The aluminum is all cut on our high definitaion CNC plasma table for an exact fit-up and then hand welded. The kit is designed for our ATR Wheel and Shaft Set Pair - 6" Solid Core Foam Rubber or ATR Wheel and Shaft Set Pair - 10 inch pneumatic, but the single omni wheels or double omni wheels can be used too. The kit includes the hardware and mounting plates to mount the IG42 planetary gear motors. Using this base you can set it up as a 4WD or 6WD robot platform. The wheels are supported by an outboard bearing that comes with the wheel sets we sell. The end of the shaft is directly coupled to the motor on a motor mount plate. See our ATR page for more details.
These dimensions do not include weld filler, which adds a little to the overall dimensions. When used with the ATR Wheel and Shaft Set Pair - 6" Solid Core Foam Rubber, it has a ground clearance of a little over 2 inches.
This is a large gear motor housing. It is sized to go with our large IG42 gear motors.
This is a rugged chassis made of 1/8" thick aluminum to accept our IG32 and IG32P gear motors. The aluminum is cut with our CNC plasma cutter for and exact fit-up and welded. The chassis accepts outboard bearings to take the wheel loads.
SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader.
This ATR robot uses custom length sides and 10 inch traction lug tires. We have included everything to make it ready to run including batteries, controllers, chargers, etc.
