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 slapping on there.
The clear acrylic front plate has mounting holes for all our common distance sensors and other accessories, from the Maxbotix Ultrasonic Line to the Robotic Claw. These are brand-new and are shipping immediately. Stay tuned, we'll have some project/application tips and tricks available shortly.
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.
