Need help choosing Robot Kit
« on: April 24, 2010, 03:08:58 PM »
Hey guys I am looking into buying a smaller robot kit.  I am looking at getting this one here http://www.robotshop.ca/dagu-mr-general-mobile-robotic-platform.html.  I don't no anybody with one and I have not found any more info on it.  I want the kit for having it drive around itself avoiding objects and such.  eventually hoping to add a robotic arm or other device.

Any opinions on it would be helpful!!

P.S looking into using an Arduino Duemilanove with it for micro controller

This kit was developed by a fellow LMR member, OddBot. He workd for Dagu company in China. He has developed a few other robotic kits, including a couple of Arduino robot kits that will come out soon. You can take a look at the Let's Make Robots Forum and search for OddBot or Mr. General.
Check out the uBotino robot controller!

I ordered one of their "Mr. Robot" kits and it sucked completely. Not sure if it applies to the others as well.
