2-Wheel Balancing Robot Kit

via DFRobot


This 2-Wheel Balancing Robot platform Kit is based on the opensource 2-wheel balancing algorithm which is transplanted to the Arduino platform. They key comonents of this self-balancing robot are an DFRduino Uno, a 6 DOF IMU shield, 2 12V DC motors, 4 analog rotation sensors and a dual motor driver. The custom-made acrylic case is easy to assemble, and solid enought for strutting and motion. It's egg-shaped outfit is definitely an eye-catching chic minibot, at the same time allowing extra areas for your own modules and add-ons. Through assembling this 2-Wheel Balancing Robot kit, the user will not only learn the 2-wheel self-balancing programming with Arduino, but also explore more cool possibilities with other modules on this platform, for example, RC control via Xbee, Blutooth communication via Bluno board for arduino.
Note: Considering about the shipping issue, this robot kit doesn't include the battery for the robot. We recommend you to choose 12~15v batter from local suppliers. And kindly remind you that don't forget the battery charger for your robot. ~.
How Does It Work
Version history
The first generation prototype balancing Robot from Kent.
Rev 0.2 is just designed for fun. ~.
As a product, the frame design of v0.3 is too weak because of the flaws caused by mechanical design. However it should be tough for the beginners to play with it.
So we improved it a little bit and finish the latest version as you can see.
