This is the Multi-Chassis Rescue Platform, an easy to assemble and use robot chassis kit. The Multi-Chassis kit provides you with everything you need to give your robot a unique tank tread platform with plenty of room for expansion to add various sensors and controllers. What separates this Multi-Chassis kit from the others is that it is equipped with four tank treads, the two inner treads remain stationary while the outer two can rotate giving your robot the ability to climb low ledges. All you need to do is supply is a basic motor driver and power and you’ll be ready to drive!
This Multi-Chassis Tank Kit includes two 48:1 DC gearboxes with a metal final output gear and shaft and wheel encoders that independently drive each inner 52mm tank treads making this chassis able to drive around tough terrain and climb small steps. The outer tank treads are controlled by a S06NF STD 60° servo which allows the treads to rotate to whatever angle you need them to be in. Each side of the 2.5mm thick aluminum frame, that encloses each gearbox, comes cut with plenty of attachment points (multiple opportunity points) to add a multitude of different robot controllers, drivers, and sensors. The metal frame also has an internal holder available for you to add a servo to your robot to control the outer tank treads.
