This tracked chassis from Dagu Electronics makes a great base for building a small, tank-like RC vehicle or autonomous robot. The chassis includes a battery holder and two DC motors, with an independent drive train for each tread, so all you need to add to make a complete robot is a robot controller and the sensors of your choosing. A unique mechanism allows you to configure the clearance of the chassis by adjusting the angle of the gearbox assemblies. This version of the chassis does not have encoders.

 

The Rover 5 tracked chassis, made by Dagu Electronics, is a durable robot platform with caterpillar treads that let it drive over many types of surfaces and uneven terrain. All you need to get the chassis moving is a robot controller or motor controller to drive the two built-in DC motors, which powered by the included 6-AA battery holder (AA batteries sold separately). A small Phillips screwdriver and an Allen wrench are included for working with the chassis.

 

The chassis features a rugged white plastic body with room to house the included battery holder and some additional electronics. The two powerful motors with 86.8:1 gearboxes are strong enough to lift the weight of the chassis and allow it to achieve speeds as high as 10 in/s (25 cm/s). We offer two versions of the Rover 5: with and without quadrature encoders; the encoders provide a resolution of 1000 counts per three revolutions of the wheel, or 333.33 CPR (counting both rising and falling edges of both encoder channels).

 

A unique feature of this chassis is the ability to adjust its height—and, therefore, the clearance under its body—by changing the angles at which the gearbox assemblies are mounted on the body. Interlocking teeth on the body and the gearboxes hold them in place and allow you to make adjustments in 5° increments by unscrewing a metal bracket inside the chassis, removing a gearbox, and reinserting it at a different angle. The elastic rubber tracks maintain sufficient tension with several different gearbox angles, allowing the chassis height to vary by nearly 1.5" (3.8 cm).
