The DragonTail is a sturdy 3-wheel robotic platform that can patrol all types of surfaces. Interface your microcontroller of choice to it, program, and watch this chassis cruise.
The DragonTail - a simple robot platform for all your robot platforming needs. Basically, we set you up with a nifty aluminum base, acrylic top and front panels with a range of mounting holes some servos with wheels, an omni-direction caster/roller, and a battery pack. The rest is up to you - we've worked hard to make this as flexible as possible, so that you can configure it with your choice of microcontroller brains (Arduino, PICAXE...) and whatever sensors or accessories you feel like mounting on it.
A nice touch is that with servos as the driving motor, you only have to feed it a signal from your processor - no H-Bridge is necessary.
We recommend using this kit with the Freeduino and GVS shield, but we also have to a convenient complete bundle to get you on your way with bringing the DragonTail Chassis to life.
