Roboteq Releases WiFi Robot Design Platform

Roboteq has released a WiFi Robot design platform, which includes an Intel Atom Processor-based Mini-ITX mainboard as well as an AX3500 DC Motor Controller.

The battery-driven robot features four wheels, camera system and a WiFi connection. The robot is enclosed by a 46cm x 61cm aluminum frame and can be controlled remotely through the internet.

The AX3500 motor controller features two channel outputs and it alters the speed and orientation of the motors on both sides of the chassis for driving and steering the robot.

Users can download mechanical CAD drawings, software, exhaustive assembly guidelines and wiring diagrams for the robot from the company’s website. The controller can offer a maximum output of 8 RC servos, enabling the operation of robotic arms and other accessory items. The motor controller is linked to the Intel Atom mainboard though its RS232 port.

The Intel D510M mainboard offers extensive passive cooling, power efficiency, superior performance at an affordable cost. The compact form factor measures 17cm x 17cm and is utilized in the development of mobile robots. The motherboard is compatible with Windows7 and Linux. The PC-friendly platform helps in the development of flexible software and enables major computational performance. The 24 V batteries of the robot provide 800 mA of current to the mainboard. A power converter assures sustained operation if the batteries are completely charged or partly exhausted.
