  • 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.

  • Line Tracking Robot Kit
    Great Little Kit
    Review by Ian
    I used 7 of this kit with a group of 15 kids aged 12-16 and it was a really big hit. They all worked and the kids had a blast figuring out how to best make paths for them. We explored their capabilities, raced them and the kids even developed their own robotic sumo wrestling game. I highly recommend this kit great value for the price.

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, [...]

What Wheels Should My Robot Use?

Posted on February 29, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

Designing a mobile robot and wondering what wheels (and how many) you should incorporate? You’ve come to the right place. Mobile wheeled or tracked robots have a minimum of two motors which are used to propel and steer the robot. Hobbyists tend to choose skid steering (like a tank) because of its simplicity to design, [...]

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

You’re thinking about building your first robot and have grandiose thoughts of making something like an exoskeleton or a giant robotic “pet” to strike fear into your enemies. As much as we dream about these robots and see them in movies, there are not many around for a reason. For your first build, you need [...]

It is also worth noting that humanoids are not the only type of robots, you could use wheeled tor tracked robots with cameras such as RB-Drr-03

Finally, DARwIn's price is not 1200$, it is 12 000$
