The Devastator tank mobile robot platform is constructed from high-strength aluminum alloy and is extremely solid and durable. Meanwhile, it features exceptional shock absorption, easy programming, compatibility with multiple main control boards, high expandability, and a powerful motor for increased load capacity.

Suspension Dampening

Devastator tank mobile robot platform incorporates a unique design and is equipped with a suspension system, enabling it to travel more smoothly on complex terrain. This suspension system serves to balance the weight of the robot and reduce vibrations, decreasing the instability experienced during robot movement.

Easy to Program

Devastator tank robot platform use dual DC brushed geared motors, which offer a convenient wiring layout, simple control logic, and full compatibility with popular controllers available in the market. It can be compatible with widely used mainboards such as the UNIHIKER, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LattePanda, ESP32, and similar platforms.

Highly Expandable

This tracked robot platform offers many mounting holes, enabling users to install various sensors, actuators, controllers, multi-degree-of-freedom gimbals, video transmission systems, and other devices both inside and outside the robot from different angles. This feature makes this tank robot platform capable of completing many complex tasks, including long-distance control, grasping and transportation, harsh environment detection, and real-time monitoring in outdoor settings.

Higher Payload with Powerful Motors

Compared to its predecessor, this tracked robot platform has improved its power configuration, now featuring upgraded metal DC brushed reduction motors. This update enhances the robot platform payload capacity, enabling it to handle up to 3kg. Consequently, the tank robot platform becomes capable of accommodating a six-degree-of-freedom robotic arm and a larger capacity battery, expanding its capabilities for executing gripping tasks. Furthermore, this robot can be equipped with various devices, such as laser radar, depth cameras, and high-definition cameras, allowing indoor mapping operations to be conducted.

Project 1: A Dancing Robot That Listens to Music and Moves to the Notes

Introduction: The idea is that the robot listens to the different frequencies of whatever song is played and moves based on whatever notes it hears, so it'll dance differently for any given song.

Project 2: How to control Real Mobile Tank through Unity Game

Introduction: In this demo, Movement of real mobile tank is being controlled by the movement of a virtual tank in the game. This has been made by establishing a network connection between virtual tank in game & real mobile tank.

Project 3: Arduino Tank Robot Project using the Devastator metal chassis

Introduction: In this video, we are going to build an Arduino Tank Robot; an enormous autonomous tank and we are going to try it on the field! Let's get started!

Project 4: How To Make Wireless Control Raspberry Pi Tank

Introduction: In this tutorial, we will learn how to control a tank robot remotely and wirelessly with Raspberry Pi. We will remotely connect to the robot via VNC.
