powerful 12 VDC motors are combined with precisely machined aluminum hardware to provide the power, strength, and beauty demanded by your mid-sized robot. All custom parts are CNC machined in-house at Parallax headquarters in Rocklin, CA. The mounting block makes securing this kit a breeze; and the included 6 inch (15.3 cm) pneumatic rubber tires are durable enough to handle a variety of smooth or rugged terrains without hesitation. The included Position Controllers use a quadrature encoder system to reliably track the position and speed of each wheel and report the data on demand. They can also be interfaced with HB-25 motor controllers to automatically provide smooth speed ramping and accurate position control.
This is the kit with all it'sparts. Pretty cool.

About this page
Welcome to this robotic site, I have some tutorials on my workshop and robots. I also have several robot designs and I would like to share some of them with you. I am married to Carol and have one son Jamie 14 yrs old. I will update this site Monthly on a regular basis. I have a number of robots on this site so go to the navigation and peruse the contents. There is also a section on building high end gaming PC's.
