Overview

The aluminum Motor Mount and Wheel Kit is a precision-machined mechanical drive system designed for mobile robotic platforms. The motors are worm-gear driven, and the main drive axle (0.5” dia.) is cradled in a ball bearing assembly for smooth-rolling performance. The included 36-position disk Quadrature Encoders resolve to 144 discrete ticks per tire revolution for precision navigation.

Ready to build your own custom mid-sized robot? As part of the Arlo Robotic Platform System, Parallax offers robotic platforms, wheel kits, development boards, sensors, components, hardware, and accessories to bring your robot to life.

Key Features:

  • Machined 6061 aluminum components for smooth, worry-free performance
  • 60 lb. payload capacity
  • Compatible with any microcontroller
  • 144 encoder positions per revolution provide 0.14” of linear travel accuracy
  • Conveniently positioned pre-tapped screw holes for easy mounting
  • Rugged 6” pneumatic tires are suitable for a variety of terrain
  • Smooth-rolling and quiet performance

Application Ideas:

  • Autonomous mobile robotic platform
  • Tele-presence robot drive system
  • Remote-controlled “sentry robot”

Note: This product replaces the previous Motor Mount and Wheel Kit (#27971).
