The designing and building process of the metallic structure for an all-terrain robot is often harder and longer. Robotpark released a new 4×4 metallic platform body for wheeled mobile robots able to explore uneven terrains.
The platform comes with all the mechanical components. In that way solve all the problems associated with the mechanical structure.
Besides the ultrasonic sensor attached in front of the platform, the only thing that has to add are the electronics systems that control the robot.
Two big DC motors provide tractions to all four wheels. Each wheel has attached a suspension system for locomotion on uneven terrain, and differential steering systems for all four wheels.
All these features come at a price: $990.00 plus shipping.
Here is a demo of the platform:
