Tech Thursday #030: Simple Motor Mounting

Looking for a simple yet sturdy way to mount a motor and an ATR shaft without buying a welded chassis? Try our motor mount tubes, which we machine it to mount our motor mount plates. The other side fits a flanged ball bearing. Slide a wheel shaft through the bearing onto the motor shaft and fix a couple of shaft collars and you’re in business. We make two versions, one for our IG32 and IG42 motors... Read More »

Tech Thursday #028: Available Track and Wheel Options

If there is one thing we have learned, it’s that track design is not trivial. We have been building treaded robots for over 10 years, and, at generation 4, they’ve been through many stages of evolution. It takes a lot of research and development in order to produce treads that stay on under tough circumstances. We’ve done it, performing NIST qualification tests using our LT2 robot and generatio...

Tech Thursday #027: Wiring Batteries in Parallel or Series

Tech Thursday is back after a long break! We have been collecting a lot of topic ideas based on chats and emails. Todays topic is going to be about wiring batteries in series or parallel. Be sure to check out our support page on electrical wiring. The page contains a lot of helpful schematics, etc. including this one on the parallel versus series wiring. A relatively simple practice for some, but ... Read More »

The News & Observer

We so excited to have made the front page of today’s paper! The article, appearing in todays News & Observer, was written by Will Doran! “SuperDroid Robots is, by its name alone, a company for the 21st century. It sells custom-built robots and parts to customers, ranging from amateur hobbyists to massive corporations, police agencies and the U.S. government.” Read More Read More »

LT2-F

LT2-F

LT2-F Overview This robot is a smaller treaded robot that was built to be compact in size but still able to climb stairs. It can climb over many obstacles that are a lot taller than itself by using the flipper arms. The robot’s flipper arm can lift its nose up, stabilize it from flipping over, and/or lift itself up. The arms can also be used to right itself after flipping over. This robot is... Read More »

Motor Controllers

Motor Controllers

MOTOR CONTROLLERS use low current, low voltage input signals to drive motors with higher voltages and currents. The output of a motor controller is PWM based, which stands for pulse width modulation. The concept of a PWM signal is to switch the output power on and off really fast in order to reduce the average voltage supplied to the motor in order to precisely control the speed of a motor. We cam... Read More »
