DragonTail Electronics Bundle




$63.50 ea.

Our DragonTail is a brand new, bare-bones robotic platform. It's shiny and slick lookin', but... What can you do with it? Here is a bundle to get the DragonTail navigating its environment in no time!

Description [Hide]

Please Note: This bundle does not include the Dragon Deluxe Chassis, but it is available here for all your robotic needs.

So those tricky folks in our R&D department whipped up an example project, and we've put together a bundle for it.

This project makes the DragonTail robot chassis capable of navigating its environment, using a panning micro servo with a long-range infrared sensor (GP2Y0A02YK0F) on it and 2 short-range tactile sensors to get around whatever is in the way. The Freeduino (or Arduino) setup makes for a simple build without the need for a dedicated motor controller, and we've even put together some sample code (under the Resources tab).

The bundle includes:

1 x HXT900 9g / 1.6kg / .12sec Micro Servo
1 x SB-GVS Sensor Shield for Arduino
1 x Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F - Distance Measuring Sensor 20 to 150cm
1 x 3-conductor JST terminated cable, 14cm long
0.5 x 11.5" (29cm) 3-conductor servo cable - Futaba female connector
1 x SB-Freeduino
