Antbot Logic Board - Arduino

back to robots

A low cost, high reliability Android robotics platform! Turn any smartphone or wifi camera into an autonomous rover. Features two motor outputs, two servo outputs, and has sockets for Arduino shields and high-power motor drivers.

The Antbot board is now available in standalone mode: you can still use it as an Arduino shield, but you can also solder an Arduino and crystals on it to use it by itself. In standalone mode, it can accept shields just be aware that some of the I/O pins are taken by the modem and motor controller.

We now also support the MSP430 and Picaxe controller.

For ordering Antbot chassis with these or other custom boards, please contact us.

Works with our Antbot Rover platform.

For larger rovers we currently recommend using a Propbridge board and loading the robotics firmware on it; we have done custom designs for a number of customers, including banks, solar power providers, and even NASA. We are happy to assist with your robotics solution.

ROBOTS ANYWHERE - ANDROID REMOTE OPERATION

Robots Anywhere is an advanced control system that runs on Android, and uses a hardware interface to allow a phone to control almost any type of robot or autonomous vehicle. Drones on land, sea, and air are all possible using Robots Anywhere, with off-the-shelf commercial hardware.

The Robots Anywhere app can output signals via bluetooth, wifi, serial, and audio to a “spinal cord” circuit like our own Antbot Board.

The Robots Anywhere application can also support GPS navigation, which will be further refined in the upcoming 2.0.

A NEW WAY TO ANTBOT - 3D PRINTING!

Robots Anywhere’s flagship robot is our Antbot, built on the legacy of the educational antbot. The same quad motor, steel chassis design is still available, or you can now 3D print an inexpensive version!

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY ROBOTS - ANYWHERE!

Robots Anywhere is designed specifically for low bandwidth environments, meaning you can operate on 2G, satellite, or even dial-up networks and still drive. We’ve used this to get pizzas in rural Italy with an operator in Canada, and ship our L-Cheapo lasers among other things. If you need a low-cost, low-bandwidth fleet solution, contact us!
