3 – 6V Motor Smart Car Tank Robot Chassis Platform DIY Shock Absorption For Arduino
3 – 6V Motor Smart Car Tank Robot Chassis Platform DIY Shock Absorption For Arduino, is a robotic tank track platform system that has two independently driven tracks, each one powered by a small 3V to 6V motor. This particular product that I purchased from the GEEK app (Part of the Wish.com group.) has no servo motors their is only the base chassis for this this kit, however it is considerably chipper than a full kit. Therefor you will need to purchase your own servos and wires etc, you will also need to use some kind of RC (Radio control) system or a microcontroller such as an Arduino, in order to start using the robotic tank. If you choose to use a microcontroller, you can install a BlueTooth or WI-FI module that will let you control the tank from any number of compatible devices, including your Smart Phone. If you choose a microcontroller, you will need to download or write a program that controls the motors and any additional components or sensors that you choose to add.
Microcontroller – Arduino
The Arduino specifically the Uno model would be the primary and logical choice, due to its ubiquitous nature, the large community of support, and its unprecedented value, in terms of reliability, durability, cost effectiveness and its compact nature. Again, a quick internet search on Google.com will revile a multitude of places from which you can purchase an Arduino Uno for approx £2.50 To £4.oo for the unofficial versions, (as Arduino is open source hardware) or you can purchase a starer kit including wires, jumper wires, components and power supplies, etc for around £15.00 To £30.00 depending on what goodies it comes with, a very basic kit with some jumper wires will be more than sufficient for this project, eBay or Wish.com / GEEK app usually offer the best deals on these.
A jump wire (also known as jumper, jumper wire, jumper cable, DuPont wire, or DuPont cable, named after DuPont the manufacturer) is an electrical wire or group of them in a cable with a connector or pin at each end (or sometimes without them – simply “tinned”), which is normally used to interconnect the components of a breadboard or other prototype or test circuit, internally or with other equipment or components, without soldering. Individual jump wires are fitted by inserting their “end connectors” into the slots provided in a breadboard, the header connector of a circuit board, or a piece of test equipment. They range in price from around £1.50 to about £4.00 for a pack of them, quick search on google.com usually offers the best deals on these as well as eBay or Wish.com / GEEK app.
HC-S04 Ultrasonic Sensor
The HC-SR04 ultrasonic ranging sensor, this sensor provides 2cm to 400cm of non-contact measurement functionality with a ranging accuracy that can reach up to 3mm. Each HC-SR04 module includes an ultrasonic transmitter, a receiver and a control circuit. There are only four pins that you need to worry about on the HC-SR04: VCC (Power), Trig (Trigger), Echo (Receive), and GND (Ground). More information can be found at www.sparkfun.com, they have a data sheet and some example code can be found on instructables.com they range in price from around £1.50 to about £4.00 for a signal module, a quick search on google.com usually offers the best deals on these as well as eBay or Wish.com / GEEK app.
Operating Voltage: 5V DC
Operating Current: 15mA
Measure Angle: 15°
Ranging Distance: 2cm – 4m
Arduino Starter Kit
The Arduino Starter Kit, shown above is a fair representation of a typical starter kit for Arduino comprising some fairly stranded componentry for a kit of this price range. The second image from the left gives a complete package list of the contents, as not all of the components are shown especial the smaller and more numerous components such as resistors, LEDs, (Light emitting diode) buttons and sensors etc. you can purchase a starer kit including wires, jumper wires, components and power supplies, etc for around £15.00 To £30.00 depending on what goodies it comes with, a very basic kit with some jumper wires will be more than sufficient for this project, eBay or Wish.com / GEEK app usually offer the best deals on these.
