Tracked Robots

Tracked robots are ideal for rough terrain by providing as much traction as possible and evenly distributing the weight of the robot. Tracks also look cool.

  • Tamiya Tracked Vehicle Chassis Kit
    Overall, I am sufficiently satisfied with this product.and highly recommend it.
    Review by Daniel
    If you are looking for a simple and easy to manage robot, this is the perfect product! The parts were sturdy and easy to manage. The directions were on point and easy to follow. When I finished the product, it functioned perfectly, moved smooth, and had no mechanical errors.

  • T'Rex Tank All Terrain Metal Chassis
    Great for RC, needs design mod for good autonomous
    Review by JMFV
    A very sold and mobile heavy metal tracked chassis. The only flaw is that in reverse over obstacles, the rear most idler wheel swing arms might get pushed down and forward, making it difficult to climb the obstacle. Going forward, the chassis is fast and the suspension works great. Also, if you use indoors, there are plastic tracks you can get from the UK for hardwood floors.

  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Versatile Platform
    Review by Jacob
    As my first foray into robotics, this platform was a fantastic choice. It's well-constructed, sturdy, and uses a lot of standards. Being based on an Arduino Uno with plenty of expansion ports like the XBee sockets gives it a ton of flexibility. To mine, I added an ultrasonic sensor, a temperature and humidity sensor, and a security camera. I highly recommend the available expansion plate if you want to affix anything to the top of your rover.

  • Lynxmotion Tri-Track Chassis Kit (no electronics)
    Well made, easy to assemble.
    Review by Andrew
    This is a really well made kit, the plastic mounting boards are laser cut and very accurate, everthing went together very easily following the instructions which I downloaded. I've got it running just with radio control and a Sabertooth controller at the moment and it performs very well. The tracks are very good with grippy rubber block tread.

Robots for a Mine-free World

I am proud to say that in 1996 I was part of a NATO-led multinational force in Bosnia and Herzegovina tasked with demining and bomb disposal. As a combat engineer with the Implementation Force (IFOR), our job was both extremely exhilarating and absolutely frightening. If you have seen any of the Hurt Locker movies, you [...]

The Trackbot Gets a Price Cut, Who Wants a Powerful Spy Robot?

Posted on January 15, 2013

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Military.

The Trackbot by Inspectorbots is a powerful surveillance robot capable of navigating very rough terrain riddled with debris. Its small size makes it particularly suitable for crawling into small tunnels, pipes, and generally inaccessible places for humans. Thanks to its camera and headlights, the human operator can see what the robot sees. The video below demonstrates the robots’ capabilities. If you already wanted [...]

Meet the DFRobotShop Omni Rover

Posted on August 14, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

Most three and four wheel drive omnidirectional robots cost $500 and up and are usually intended for the research rather than the hobbyist market. For those who have the knowledge to design and build their own omniwheel driven robot, matching all the parts can be a daunting task: finding the right motors, sourcing the wheels, [...]
