  • Complete chassis with mounting hardware

The 2WD Mobile Platform for Arduino is a small, low-cost mobile platform for use with a standard Arduino microcontroller. The robot comes as a kit which includes two drive motors, wheels (and rear caster ball), frame and all mounting hardware.

The DFRobot 2WD robot is widely used as a development platform for the Arduino microcontroller. Arduino has world's largest number of users when it comes to hobby microcontrollers and there is a lot of code and project examples available.  The differential drive allows for a near zero turning radius while the high-strength aluminum alloy body plus high-quality high-speed motors make it suitable for flat indoor surfaces and flat-platform robot completitions. The top layer includes a standard servo socket and the three optional sensor holder. This three sensor holder fits with our adjustable IR range sensor. The servo can be used for a simple rotation platform, a two degrees of freedom camera holder or even a robotic arm. 

To make this lovely robot run, you will need a motor controller and microcontroller board. The Romeo V2 All-in-one Microcontroller (ATMega32U4)  is an ideal candidate for this, it includes an Arduino compatible platform directly programable via USB, a motor controller with external power option, integrated optional buttons and sensor connection sockets like our famous expansion shields.
