MadeUSA Robot Base Full Kit: 18" Base, Wheels, Motors, Sensors US$879.00

MadeUSA Robot Base Full Kit: 18\" Base, Wheels, Motors, Sensors

This kit supplies nearly everything you would need to build a multi-directional robot, with enough PING))) modules to cover 360 degrees of object detection. All you need to supply is power, a brain of your choice, and programming to get it around.

The pun in the name refers to the fact that nearly all the parts in this kit are made in the USA. The Robot Base Full Kit can be assembled in less than two hours. In order to program this robotics platform, you will need to include your own microcontroller development board.

Assembled MadeUSA Kit

MadeUSA Robot Kit Features

  • 18-inch diameter round robot base provides zero-turn radius
  • Pre-drilled mounting locations for two motor bearing blocks
  • Pre-drilled mounting locations for up to 10 Ping))) Ultrasonic Sensors and Protector Stands
  • Pre-drilled mounting locations for two caster wheels
  • Under-carriage battery pack mount location for 12V 7Ah batteries (designed for Power-Sonic PS-1270 or PS-1272 sealed lead-acid batteries)

10 PING))) Protector Stands

Machined aluminum mounting brackets for the ultrasonic range finders.

10 Servo Extension Cables

14-inch extension cables with 3-pin single-row female connectors, 0.1" spacing.

What You Must Supply

  • A processor board of your choice, and the programming to make the robot work. In other words, the hardware and software that will make up your robot's brain.
  • Wiring and a power switch to hook up your robot's brain.
  • A 12V, 7Ah sealed lead-acid battery. Recommended: Power-Sonic PS1270 or PS1272.
