DAGU-Rover5-4w4

Quick overview

The Rover 5 tracked chassis, made by Dagu Electronics, is a durable robot platform with caterpillar treads that let it drive over many types of surfaces and uneven terrain. All you need to get the chassis moving is a robot controller or motor controller to drive the four built-in DC motors, which powered by the included 6-AA battery holder (AA batteries sold separately). A small Phillips screwdriver and an Allen wrench are included for working with the chassis.

All you need to get the chassis moving is a robot controller or motor controller to drive the four built-in DC motors, which powered by the included 6-AA battery holder (AA batteries sold separately). A small Phillips screwdriver and an Allen wrench are included for working with the chassis.

Inside of the chassis are 4 noise suppression coils at the bottom and a battery holder that accepts 6x AA batteries (not included). It is recommended to use NiMh batteries as they last longer and have a higher current output than Alkaline batteries.

Each gearbox has an 87:1 ratio and includes an optical quadrature encoder that gives 1000 pulses over 3 revolutions of the output shaft. The chassis can be upgraded to include four motors and encoders making it ideal for mecanum wheels.

Motor rated voltage 7.2V
Motor stall current: 2.5A
Output shaft stall torque: 10Kg/cm
Gearbox ratio: 86.8:1
Encoder type: Quadrature
Encoder resolution: 1000 state changes per 3 wheel rotations
Speed: 1Km/hr
Four motors Four encoders
Encoder interface: Red = +5V, Black = 0V, Yellow and White = Quadrature encoder outputs

Arduino Mega

The MEGA is designed for more complex projects. With 54 digital I/O pins, 16 analog inputs and a larger space for your sketch it is the recommended board for 3D printers and robotics projects. This gives your projects plenty of room and opportunities.

The Arduino Mega is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 15 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
