Sound Reversing Robot Car Kit
This Robotic Car is a great introduction to
soldering as well as the basics of sound
control and mechanical motion. The car has
a microphone that feeds noise to the control
circuitry. When a loud enough sound (like
a clap) is heard it will cause the car to stop
moving forward and reverse itself turning
slightly left for a few seconds. Then the car will resume forward motion in a different
direction. You can adjust the circuit sensitivity so that very soft or very loud noises will
reverse the motion. Learn motor theory, transistor switching and R/C time constant circuits.
Specifications:
Power: 2 AA batteries (not included).
Includes sound activated circuit.
Circuit board requires solder assembly.
Requires basic hand tools and soldering equipment.

TriBotz Robot Kit
The Tribotz is three robots in one!
The Tribotz Robot kit teaches the fundamentals of
sensor technology and shows you how it all fits
together. Using only basic hand tools (cutting pliers,
long nose pliers, and Phillips screwdriver) you can
assemble this robot kit for a fun learning experience.
Tribotz can operate in 3 different modes:
* Avoider mode - In this mode, on-board sensors
help Tribotz to avoid obstacles.
* Sound mode - Sounds dictate the direction of movement in this mode, as Tribotz changes
direction in response to sound impulses.
* Line Tracer mode - Sensors enable the robot to follow a line drawn by a felt-tipped pen.
The TriBotz will react to sound impulses and objects in its way. It will reverse away from a
sound or obstruction and then move forward. Make a path with a black felt-tip marker or
black tape and watch how infrared sensors allow the TriBotz to make corrections. This kit
contains wonderful instructions and educational background information on each
component.

Antoid Robot Kit
The Antoid is a unique, beginner-level robot kit that
features obstacle detection and avoidance. Powered by
two DC motors, the Antoid walks on six legs and avoids
bumping into objects by detecting them with an infrared
sensor. The robot walks forward until it detects an
obstacle, at which point it backs up and turns before
resuming its forward gait. By assembling the Antoid robot
kit, you will gain an appreciation for basic sensors,
gearboxes, and electronics.
The kit includes all the parts you need to put it together,
including two pre-soldered circuit boards, two DC
motors, and high-quality, durable plastic parts that screw together nicely, and a large front
shell with a decidedly extraterrestrial look.
Because the printed circuit boards are pre-assembled, putting the Antoid together is largely
a mechanical project. All you will need are a small Phillips screwdriver and wire cutters.
The instructions are easy to understand.
The Antoid is a good robot kit for anyone as young as 10 who wants to get into robotics.
The robot is fairly straightforward to assemble, yet it is more than just a snap-together kit.
Through construction of this robot, you will learn valuable skills that will help you with
more advanced projects in the future. As you interact with your Antoid robot, you will gain
an appreciation for the capabilities autonomous robots. Dimensions: 6 x 7 x 6 inches (L x W
x H)

Robot Kits
The BattleKits line of robot kits is a great starting point for robotics projects like educational robots, industrial robotics,
experimental robots, hobby robots, and robotic sports and competitions.
BattleKits are designed along the lines of one of the most successful competition robots ever: BioHazard. We started with some
of the key features in BioHazard and developed four rugged, low-profile, high-performance, mobile platforms on which you
can build your next educational or sport robot.
We offer three different kits:
Light Weight
Middle Weight
Heavy Weight
Our kits feature:





Heavy-duty frames
Light-weight base plates and bulkheads
Complete drive trains
Built-in motor and speed controller mounting
Custom wheels
Optional components include:




Motors
Batteries and battery mounting kits
Motor speed controllers
Radio remote controls
We feel that the above combination of features results in a kit that will save you countless hours and hundreds, (or even
thousands), of dollars.
Maximum Versatility
We started with some of the key features in the design of BioHazard and improved upon them in several ways. "Kit" might not
be the best word to describe our products. We ship them fully assembled, (except for electrical connections), so that you can go
right to work adding your finishing touches. This preserves maximum versatility and flexibility. Start with our rugged, lowprofile, mobile platform to simplify and reduce the time required to complete your project.
Rugged Construction
BattleKits feature a bulletproof drive train that is completely housed in a square aluminum extruded
tube.
The one-piece extrusion (one each for the left and right drive trains), is precision CNC machined
with mounting holes for all the sprockets, wheels, shafts, and motors. Each drive component is
supported on both sides of the 3" x 3" square aluminum tubing to avoid "overhung" loads.
The tubing is made from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. The light weight robots have frame tubes with
1/4" wall thickness and the middle and heavy weights have tubing with 3/8" wall thickness.
Drive train modules include a separate two-stage speed reducer for each wheel.
All the drive chains are continuous loops with no connecting links. (Connecting
links reduce chain strength by almost 30%.) All our kits feature #35 chain. The
sprockets, shafts, and axles are custom-made from 5140 Chromoly steel. Two
different sets of sprockets are available so you have your choice of medium-fast or very fast, (details below). One of our
powerful Motors mounts on each drive module and is plenty strong for any ordinary robot. Our middle and heavyweight drive
modules also have mounting provisions for a second set of motors if you are looking for truly extraordinary acceleration.
The wheel assembly is made from the popular 4" Colson Performa tire. These are machined
and mated to our custom hubs, bearings, and 19-tooth Chromoly sprockets. This combination
weighs in at just 1.1 pounds - including the drive sprocket.
These are also available separately. Visit our wheels section for more details.
The base plates and the bulkheads are made from 6061-T6 aluminum. The base plates
are drilled and countersunk with all the mounting holes for the bulkheads, drive modules,
speed controller, and several different sizes and types of batteries. All components are
CNC computer machined to tight tolerances for maximum consistency and lowest cost.
One of the key features of our kits is that they are held together entirely with screws. Using
screws instead of welding makes it easier to modify and repair. The heavyweight base
plate has over 90 screw holes! The thickness of the base plates ranges from .156" for the
heavy weight, down to .125" for the light weight. Bolting the bulkheads and the drive
modules to the base plate results in a very stiff structure. You can easily drill and tap holes in the drive modules to mount your
own custom components
None of the sprockets hang below the bottom surface of the drive modules - not even the sprockets on the wheels. The screws
are all countersunk on the underside so nothing protrudes from the smooth surface of the base plate except the rubber part of
the wheels.
Battery Options and Mounting: We offer three different battery options. The batteries are
held in place with steel mounting hardware that is bolted to the base plate. The base plates
have been pre-drilled and countersunk for the hardware for each type of battery and for every
optional battery location. To hold the batteries down onto the base plate we use 2" wide
Velcro strapping. This combination of steel and Velcro makes for a very secure and low-cost
mount while making it easy to remove the batteries for maintenance.
Visit our batteries section for details.
Tip Resistance: The wheels are positioned so that they stick out of the frame towards
the front and the rear. This allows the robot to be tipped up onto its front or rear and
still maintain contact between the drive wheels and the floor. You can decide to keep
this feature or cover the wheels. The wheels are also positioned as close to the sides
of the frame as possible so that even sideways tips will still have to be quite extreme
before the frame comes in contact with the floor.
Another key feature is the low profile. The highest point on any of our kits (the
bulkheads) is just 4.4 inches from the floor. This allows you plenty of room to mount your educational project or other devices
on top of the kit's mobile platform without creating a robot that is unreasonably tall. A low center of gravity also makes it very
difficult to tip the robot over.
Ground Clearance: In place of the standard four-inch
wheels, optional five-inch, 28-tooth wheels can be fitted
to any of our kits for additional ground clearance. This
requires drilling new axle holes and removing some
aluminum around the wheels. Contact us and we will
provide detailed drawings, or we can do the job for you
at an additional cost. Shown on the left is the Light
weight kit with 5-inch wheels. The ground clearance is
increased to over 1.8 inches.
Here is our 5-inch conversion kit if you already have a
BattleKit and you want to make the switch.
Minimum Weight
The only steel components in our kits are the sprockets, the axles, and small hardware. Everything else is made from aluminum.
The following chart lists the size and weight of each basic kit along with the weight of the kits with our motors, batteries, and
speed controllers installed. Note that the kits can be configured with many different motor and battery combinations. The

Light Weight Kits
All the kits share the same wheels and speed reduction
hardware. The light weight kit is the simplest and lightest
possible 4-wheel-drive configuration using our custom
hardware. It includes two dual-wheel drive train modules,
aluminum bulkheads, and a base plate. The motors are located
in the center of the drive modules and each wheel has its own
two-stage speed reducer.
The base plate is drilled and countersunk with all the holes
required to mount the speed controller, batteries, and other
components - a total of 62 holes.
Available options:
Three different motors
MC-1250 batteries
AmpFlow speed controller
High-speed gearing
Radio control
Specifications:
Ships fully assembled (except for electrical connections)
Length: 17.7"
Width: 15.6"
Weight Bare: 21 Lbs.
Weight with two E30-150 motors, two MC-1250 batteries, AmpFlow 160 controller: 37 Lbs.
Visit our order page to place your order.
Middle Weight Kits
You can order this kit with up to four motors and four MC545 batteries installed. The square footprint works well for a
many types of robotics projects.
Note that four motors are not required in any of our kits in
order to achieve four-wheel drive. All wheels will be driven
even if only two motors are installed in the kits. But if you
decide to go with the E30-150 economy motors, we suggest
you use four of them in the middle weight.
A total of ten chains are used for power transmission and
speed reduction. The ten chains have no connecting links, and
they are all exactly the same length. In fact, every chain in all
of our kits is the same length, (except two chains in the heavy
weight). This enables us to buy these in large quantities and
reduce costs. All the kits also share wheels, axles, sprockets,
shafts, and other hardware so we are able to take advantage of
volume discounts on all those items.
The base plate is drilled and countersunk with all the holes required to mount the speed controller, three sizes of batteries, and
other components - a total of 84 holes.
Available options:
Six different motors
MC-545 or MC-680 batteries
AmpFlow speed controller
High-speed gearing

Weight Bare: 30 Lbs.
Weight with two A28-400 motors, two MC-545 batteries, AmpFlow controller: 62 Lbs
Visit our order page to place your order.
Heavy Weight Kits
The Middle and Heavy weight kits can be configured with two
or four motors. Ether configuration will provide four-wheel
drive. Robots with just two motors employ a "jack shaft" in
place of the second set of motors. The jack shaft is simply a
shaft with two sprockets that runs in two ball bearings
mounted in the aluminum drive module. Four motors are
required in the heavy weight kit if you choose to use the E30150 economy motors.
The base plate is drilled and countersunk with all the holes
required to mount one or two speed controllers, three sizes of
batteries, and other components - a total of 92 holes.
Available options:
Six different motors
MC-545 or MC-680 batteries
AmpFlow speed controller
High-speed gearing

Visit our order page to place your order.
Modular Drive Units
If none of our standard sizes will do the job, consider
using our Modular Drive Units. With the "MDU" you
can easily construct a mobile platform that is exactly
the length and width you need.
Each unit is basically one half of one of our middle
weight drive train modules. It includes a 10" length of
the 3/8" extruded square tubing. The tube houses a
two-stage chain-and-sprocket speed reducer and a 4" wheel. It bolts right up to our E30, A28, or F30 motors. This unit is very
easy to use. Just bolt it in place, plug it in, and go play!
You can easily mount these modules into your robot by drilling and tapping four 1/4-20 screw holes right into the 3/8"
aluminum wall. You can also mount other components directly to the module using more tapped holes. We left the hole
locations up to you so that you would have maximum flexibility in mounting.
The extruded aluminum frames are symmetrical so the motor can be mounted on either side. We call these "Type-A" and
"Type-B". For a four-wheel drive robot, you would typically need two of each type. Just choose the types that you need on our
order form. You can always reconfigure them if you change your mind.
Like all our kits, no chain tensioners are used in the modular
drive units. The axle locations are machined to such tight
tolerances that chain tensioners are not required. This is one of
our key cost-cutting features in all our kits. We reduced the
parts count and the cost with no impact on the ruggedness. We
tried to heed the advice of Antoine de Saint-Exupery when he
said "You know you've achieved perfection in design, not when
you have nothing more to add, but when you have nothing
more to take away." But we made sure to temper our
enthusiasm for that philosophy with Albert Einstein's advice:
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not
simpler."
Reduction Ratios: These drive modules are available with either 5.6 or 3.4 to 1 reduction ratios, (the same ratios used in our
kits.) The standard ratio uses sprockets with 9 and 24 teeth and the high-speed ratio uses sprockets with 13 and 21 teeth. To
switch to the faster ratio you just replace the standard sprockets with our high-speed sprockets.
The following chart shows the robot's top speed using various combinations of motors and reduction ratios:
Motor RPM
Standard
5.6 ratio
High Speed
3.4 Ratio
A28-400
4900

Ten to twelve MPH is plenty fast for almost any type of educational or fighting robot so we ship all our kits with the 5.6
reduction ratio. Those who have had lots of driving practice at that speed might want to try the faster ratio so we offer a highspeed upgrade. We recommend the following motors for use with the high speed ratio:
Light weight kit: Two of the A28-150 motors
Middle or Heavy weight kits: Four of the A28-400 or F30-400 motors
The modular drive units (unlike our kits), are available with the high speed ratio factory installed.
