View Full Version : My Mech robot

Here's a picture of my Mech robot so far. I'm using the BS2 microcontroller along with an Xbee. The bot has sonar on the front and sends measurement data back to the hand held controller. The batteries are wired in series for 24 vdc and are Lifepo type. I was never happy with the turret. After viewing a few of the nice things folks are doing here I've got an idea of how I'd like to change the turret in favor of a "Envy Mech" style head.
The motors are IG42 planetary units and are located in the aluminum tubes that make up the front of the robot. The tracks are 3 inch version and work great on just about any surface. The track side plates are cnc cut 6061 and are much lighter than they look. Full bearings throughout on all the roller surfaces.
I've got a 5.8ghz transmitter and receiver I'll be installing once the head is done.
More to come!
