Driver training? Programming? We've got a drive system for that!
It's often useful to have a second robot drivetrain in your shop, whether to give drivers practice or to give your programmers something to test against. Depending on your needs, we've got a few to choose from!
is a 6WD or mecanum drive system aimed primarily at
Tech Challenge, and it's a little under 18" square. The
run at 12V and have integrated encoders, making it easy to integrate a
control system for controls and programming training. It's friendlier to ankles with less power available, and the smaller form factor makes it much easier to store after meetings in classroom cabinets or car trunks.
is a 2WD chassis powered by two
gearboxes. In stock form, it's about as fast as a stock AM14U3 but much more lively to drive thanks to the short wheelbase. Swap the gear ratios or add 8" wheels, and it will be quite the test for your drivers to control!
And, of course, there's the
that was part of the 2017 Kickoff Kit. This competition-grade 6WD can be built into a full second robot easily to compete at off-season events. We offer it in a few variations, from a
ready to tackle terrain to the
AM14U3 Square Deal Edition
that trades a little flexibility for savings. And the
frame is available separately
if you've got spare parts you want to put to work.
