DFRobotShop Rover V2

The DFRobotShop Rover V2 – Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit) is a versatile mobile robot tank based on the popular Arduino Uno USB Microcontroller Rev 3 microcontroller. The rover uses a twin motor gearbox and the Tamiya track and wheel set. The PCB incorporates a standard Arduino Uno, L293B motor driver, voltage regulator and prototyping area. The onboard voltage regulator allows the entire board to be powered using as little as 3.7V to ~9V.


Start Here Bot V2.0

This is the original "LMR Start Here" project. Although there are other "How to get started building robots" out there, this one focuses on getting you around everything extremely fast. You need no knowledge of ... anything, and you will learn everything. This is a bit more "do it yourself"

techset on youtube! well the sensors that detect the obstical ir or ping maybe those can be reused and the motors like you said can be glued onto a chassis for a new robot project. and main curcuit board can be sold online for like 40- 50 depending on the model of romba or irobot you have.

some body know ¿how connect a module hc-05 to raspberry pi 2?

This is an old video, before the frame was even painted yellow. You can hear my wife chuckling as she sees the thing work successfully. She probably had her doubts that it ever would!
