Introducing the RobotGeek Geekbot V2 Basic Kit. This kit has everything you need to build a fully programmable rover robot! A panning range sensor will allow the Geekbot to do basic obstacle avoidance while LED and buzzer outputs will help tell the world where the Geekbot is going.
The GeekBot Rover is a highly flexible wheeled rover created from the ground up to be completely modular and easy to customize. Powered by two high speed continuous turn robot servos, GeekBot has a strong payload capability of 1kg/2.2lbs and moves fast at up to 0.4Mps / 1.3fps. Each Geekbot comes with a 4400mah 7.4V rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, allowing your Geekbot to run for hours! Integrated protection circuitry protects the battery from under/over voltage. Each kit comes with a wall-charger so you can recharge your battery when it runs low.
At the heart of the Geekbot Rover is the Arduino based Geekduino Microcontroller which allows the rover to be compatible with the whole Arduino ecosystem of products. The comprehensive kit also includes the RobotGeek sensor shield which gives a clean and intuitive breakout of all Arduino I/O for quick set up and ease of expansion. By adding RobotGeek Sensors, you can even make your own mobile RobotGeek Experimenter's Kit!
All RobotGeek sensors, kits, and add-ons conform to the 1 X 1cm grid on the GeekBot decks. Add sensor arrays, turrets, grippers, arms, lasers, airsoft guns, advanced controllers… the possibilities are limited only to your imagination. The GeekBot is specifically designed to be customized for each builder’s unique project goals.
The Geekbot is a great platform for hobby and educational rover projects - whether you want to build an entertaining house bot or build a robot to solve mazes and compete in firefighting competitions, the Geekbot can save roboticists time by providing out of the box platform to build their robot on.
The Geekbot is meant as an educational rover and was designed for flat surfaces. Uneven surfaces may cause the robot to behave erratically or get stuck.
