RobotGeek Desktop RoboTurret
Trossen Robotics’s robot turret is an Arduino-compatible platform ideal for a 1st robotics project, whether or not you’re familiar with the Arduino IDE.DISCONTINUED PRODUCT
RobotGeek robot turret: a Geekduino project
The RobotGeek Desktop Turret is a robot turret controlled by Geekduino, a microcontroller fully compatible with the Arduino programming environment. You can create your own program code then download it to your microcontroller from within the Arduino IDE.
Trossen Robotics has created some very comprehensive documentation, allowing you to take your 1st steps in robotics programming or create a new project with your favourite open-source IDE.
The RobotGeek Desktop Turret kit comes with a RobotGeek Sensor Shield you can connect directly to your microcontroller to add any of the Arduino-compatible modules, sensors and actuators designed by RobotGeek.
Some are even included in your pack. All you need is a 3-pin cable to connect each of your RobotGeek I/O modules.
1 Arduino turret, 2 brand new RobotGeek servos
Your Arduino turret comes with 2 RobotGeek 180° servomotors (RG-SRV180). These servos are more powerful than those provided with the previous versions of the RobotGeek robot turrets, offering a torque that has been multiplied by two.
They also have a mounting system guaranteeing greater stability and a more robust attachment to the turret.
Your RobotGeek Desktop Turret kit includes a push button and joystick, allowing you to design your own remote to control your servos.
And if you equip your turret with the laser beam, you can also check the direction in which it’s moving by simply following the red dot.
