These All Terrain Robots (ATRs) are designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics.
This is a flexible base robot kit that enables you to easily change the length. The default configuration comes without electronics or batteries, but they can be selected below or ordered separately. The kit includes custom sides that are 2.5" x 2.5" Aluminum tube with a 1/8" thick wall. We machine it to a custom length. Using two of these you can make your custom sized robot (if you do not select a length, you will receive a standard length tube which is 19" center to center, or 23" long). They support our ATR Wheel and Shaft Set Pair 12mm bore - 10 inch. Four motor adapter plates are provided with hardware to mount IG52 planetary gear motors to the chassis side. The width of robot is up to you, it must be at least (the length the gear motors + 2.5" tube + 1/8" adaptor plate) x 2. A simple piece of plywood, aluminum, or acrylic can be used to tie the two sides together or the sides can be bolted onto your own robot chassis.
- Standard size: 19" center to center (23" tube length) x 20" wide
- Custom size ranges: 11"-32.5" wheel center to center (15.25"-36.75" tube length) x 19"-30" wide
One of the options below is for a chassis plate, made out of .125" Aluminum. This will make your robot kit complete. Please note that the chassis plate is bent on each end, which adds .125" onto each side, or .25" total. So, for a 23" tube, the chassis plate is 23.25" long. You need to make sure that you select a width that is wide enough to fit the motors. For example, if you are using 82 RPM motors without encoders, the chassis plate needs to be at least 21" wide. For 82 RPM motors with encoders the chassis plate needs to be at least 22" wide. You can find the length of the motors and encoders on any of the IG52 motor item pages
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.
