The RobotShop Rover was designed around the and is a compact, low cost indoor mobile tracked platform . Users can customize their rover by adding electronic parts to the solderless breadboards. The pan and tilt included with the kit can be used to mount an additional sensor or sensors, a camera or even act as the base for a multi-degree of freedom robotic arm. It is advised to also purchase the Pololu Micro Serial 8 Servo Controller  as the servos requires a 50ms refresh rate.

*Shown here with optional Mini-grip and Xbee wireless shield
Adding a gripper: Lyn-76, 118 and Hit-27 (one of each)

Mount the Sharp infrared sensor included to the front of the frame to make an obstacle-avoiding robot. The front mounting bracket can also be used to offset the pan and tilt system or an Lynxmotion Aluminum "L" Connector Bracket Two Pack (Brushed) ASB-06B . Although users are free to devise their own power system, the microcontroller is powered by a 9V battery, and the motors operate off four AA batteries.
