Here's our new robot tank chassis that we've developed. We call it the Brutusbot, and no, it's not named after the evil villain from Popeye!


Description [Hide]

The Brutusbot is a new affordable mobile tank platform that is customizable and fit to suite. It can be used to mount your microcontroller of choice whether it being an Arduino, Freeduino, PICAXE-28 Project Board, or you could always go with direct radio control to a motor driver. We recommend the following motor drivers: Compact motor driver or the CMDR shield to drive the Tamiya twin motor gearbox.

Features

  • Rugged blue anodized aluminum chassis with skid plate and laser-engraved artwork;
  • Grippy rubber treads to get over the toughest obstacles;
  • Customizable twin motor gearbox that supports two different configurations: high speed for indoor or consistent surface environments, or high torque for shag rugs and outdoor madness;
  • Clear acrylic top with cutouts for mounting a sensor sweeping servo and passing through wiring for a clean look;
  • Acrylic color can even be easily be changed with plastic spray paint to modify its look and feel, protective paper has been left on acrylic for your own customization;
  • Includes cutouts for SAFE (Solarbotics Arduino Freeduino Enclosure) mounting to protect your electronics in off-road environments;
  • 6-cell 'AA' Battery Pack, provides 9V to motors when using 1.5V alkalines and 7.2V when using rechargeables.
  • Brutusbot Armor Enhancement Kit also available to further mod your tank

Included in the kit

  • Tamiya Twin Motor Gearbox Kit
  • Tamiya Tread Kit
  • 6-cell 'AA' Battery Pack with 2.1mm Barrel Jack
  • Velcro mounting strap to hold battery pack in place
  • Anodized Blue Aluminum chassis
  • Acrylic Top Plate with 1 1/4" Aluminum hex standoffs and 4-40 x 3/8" mounting hardware

The assembled bot measures 18.3cm (7.25") long x 11cm (4.33") wide x 5.7cm (2.24") high.

Please Note the following: We are now shipping version 2 of the chassis and there are 4 different pieces of artwork available which are given out at random. Under documentation you will find manual v1.0 which is used for the version 1 chassis and manual v1.1 which is for version 2.
