Rover 5 Robot Platform

Stock code: ROB-10336

If you’re looking for a chassis base for your next robot, look no further than the Rover 5. The Rover 5 uses 4 independent motors, each with a hall-effect quadrature encoder and gearbox. The entire gearbox assembly can be rotated at 5 degree increments for different clearance configurations. You can even replace the tank treads with traditional wheels.

This isn’t a wimpy or flimsy robot base. Weighing in at over 2.5 pounds without batteries, this base is heavy duty and can drive over quite a bit. Check the manual below for dimensional drawings.


  • Adjustable gear box angles
  • 4 independent DC motors
  • 4 independent hall-effect encoders
  • Thick rubber tank treads
  • 6x AA battery holder
  • 10Kg/cm stall torque per motor
