The Wild Thumper 4WD Starter Pack comes with everything you need to remote control your Wild Thumper and get into High Power, all terrain robotics - with Intelligent Microcontrollers!
Just assemble everything, load the sample Arduino code supplied and
you're good to go. The RC Receiver module sould be connected to pin D0 and D1 of
the Arduino Motor Controller and let the fun begin!
The arm servos can be connected directly to the RC Receiver or, with some modifications in code connect them to Arduino and control them digitally.
You can also upgrade your robot with Sensors for Autonomous Behaviour: for example install an Ultrasonic Range Finder in the front of the robot and never crash into a wall again. Check our full range of sensors.
The Arduino Sample code enables control using the included RC remote (PWM signals) or using a Serial Protocol. Using the Serial Protocol you can interface the Wild Thumper with a more powerful Micro Controller such as RaspberryPi or BeagleBone for true autonomous behaviour.
