Dagu mobile robot chassis: transform your robot into a tank!
The standard version of the tank chassis consists of a compact robotics platform equipped with a very robust aluminium frame for safely carrying out numerous different exploration activities.
The DG012-SV chassis is different from the DG012-ATV and DG012-BV chassis because it's tracks rather than having 4pcs wheels.
DG012-SV Dagu chassis: from assembly to optimisation
The Dagu DG012-SV chassis comes in a kit, containing all the necessary comonents as well as the tools required to mount your robot chassis. Beware, however, because the batteries are not included!
Once assembled, you’ll need various different accessories to use your robot, for example a microcontroller (an Arduino Uno board for example), a radio receiver for controlling your robotics platform remotely, and maybe some other devices that could prove extremely useful like sensors to enable your robotic mini-tank to interact with its environment, a camera or a data logger. It’s completely up to you depending on your project!
In any case, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your chassis is already equipped with numerous slots and fixation points for all your add-ons.
