Note: Turtle Kit: A 2WD DIY Robotics Kit is discontinued now.
The Turtle 2WD DIY Robotics building kit is a entry level programmable robot kit based on Arduino.
With just a few simple steps of assembling the hardware and tuning the software, and you'll learn all about Arduino, robotics, sensors, Bluetooth communication — as well as obstacle avoidance and remote controlling. You can also take it further with your own code to take advantage of the ultrasonic sensor, Romeo ( a Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) Arduino Compatible Microcontroller ) , IR distance sensors, and LEDs.
The Turtle 2WD Mobile Platform is a small, low-cost mobile platform compatible with standard Arduino microcontrollers. It contains two drive motors, wheels (and rear caster ball), frame and all mounting hardware. It is widely used as self-developed control classis for Arduino and other control boards. The Turtle 2WD has multiple features such as two differential drives, near zero turning radius, high-strength aluminum alloy body material, motors, and a flexible rubber wheel makes it suitable for indoor flat road surface and flat-platform robot competitions. 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, two degrees of freedom camera holder, or even a robotic arm.
Thanks to Romeo BLE, the kit can be controlled by APP (IOS). Simply download an APP (GoBLE) to enjoy the control from your IOS device.
