The Mini DFRobotShop Rover Kit (Arduino Uno) is a small, inexpensive tracked platform which provides you with the basic tools needed to experiment with Arduino-based programming and mobile robots. The kit includes an Arduino Uno microcontroller module. The frame is made out of durable laser-cut Lexan parts, and the drive system is comprised of the Tamiya Twin-Motor Gear Box (must be assembled in configuration A) and a Tamiya Track and Wheel Set.

Arduino Uno
The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 microchip. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a 1.5m USB Cable Type A to B or power it with an Wall Adapter Power Supply - 9VDC 650mA or DFRobot 7.4V Lipo 2200mAh Battery (Arduino Power Jack) to get started.

The DFRobotShop Rover Shield is the ideal "all in one" shield for small, Arduino-based mobile robot development. The shield allows you to power your Arduino using a 3.7V LiPo battery (also included with this kit) and even has a 3.7V LiPo charger onboard, allowing you to charge the battery via USB. The onboard L298P H-bridge (dual brushed DC motor controller) is perfect for controlling two small, low voltage gear motors and allows for full control over speed and direction. Additional features include a universal IR receiver, XBee headers and analog pins broken out (for easy connection to sensors).

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews
three good

easy assembly and well explained, perfect for those who want to start. in addition there is an IR sensor,


The Mini Rover Arduino kit was easy to build and get up and running. The assembly instructions were accurate and the software libraries/examples got me up and running on my Arduino project within hours.
