GeekBot Arduino Compatible Mobile Robot
The GeekBot Arduino compatible mobile robot offers you a unique opportunity to create your dream vehicle: you can customise it at will and make the most of the Arduino environment to perfect your creation! DISCONTINUED.
GeekBot: a mobile platform you can drive with or without load
First and foremost, the GeekBot is a robotics platform equipped with 2 RG-4C continuous turn servos offering a no-load speed of 110 RPM, so that it can move fast at up to 0.4 Mps. Controlled by PWM, GeekBot has a strong payload capability of up to 1 kg. With its 2 plates, it can easily carry items from one room to another, and will perform more than one good deed!
A very resourceful Arduino mobile robotAs you’ll have gathered, GeekBot is a fully-fledged Arduino robot, ensuring 100% software and hardware compatibility. At the heart of the GeekBot rover is the Geekduino microcontroller which, along with the RobotGeek sensor shield, allows the robot to be compatible with the whole Arduino ecosystem of products: codes, modules, sensors... All within your reach.
