HD Tracked Tank Mobile Robot Kit
The heavy-duty tracked tank mobile robot kit has tank treads that enable the robot to explore much more demanding terrain than ordinary wheels.
Tank treads distribute a vehicle’s weight more evenly than wheels, allowing this tank robot to move more easily in sand or on soft surfaces that regular wheels would sink and bog down. This increased surface area also gives this heavy duty tracked mobile robot more traction for hauling heavy loads up an incline. Because each link can grip the surface over which it’s traveling, a robot with tank treads can more easily climb obstacles or traverse crevasses in which normal wheels would get stuck.
This tracked mobile tank platform not only performs well on many different surfaces, it can traverse over objects in its path and rough terrain, but also performs admirably in hostile working conditions brought about by the weather.
This programmable tracked tank robot kit is driven by two DC motors and uses an Arduino 328, which is programmed in the C/C++ programming languages. Sample code is provided for the Arduino user interface, and it has easy access to programming functions. It enables researchers, developers and robotics students to write their own software, learn from others accomplishments and configure the hardware as required and desired.
The robust body is built from aluminum alloy with an anodized black color. We use Arduino controllers to control this tracked tank mobile robot, however, you can use other robot controllers or systems to control it. The top plate is pre-dilled with 8 screws for many mounting options for development. It can be extended with any equipment that you like, such as a web camera or other camera(s), laptop computer, art projects or a robot arm, etc.
