ADCRBT Quad Crawler
"Quad Crawler" is a robot kit that can create and program an articulated quadruped walking robot. Multi-legged robots, which tend to be expensive, have been made into kits to make them as easy to pick up as possible. Assembly is almost complete with just a screwdriver. Even beginners can easily build a robot. You can enjoy humorous movements immediately after assembling with the included remote control and preset movement patterns. Furthermore, along with the dedicated scratch application "TuKuRuch", it provides solid support for programming for the first time. You can easily program various actions to realize your own quad crawler. Experience the joy of creating with the Quad Crawler, which approaches the basics of robotics from both hardware and software perspectives.
・A multi-jointed quadruped walking robot can be easily created! You can easily build your dream quadrupedal robot without soldering, just with a screwdriver. Let's enjoy learning while making the mechanism of multi-joint multi-leg movement. An assembly manual is also included, so you can work on the production while checking the procedure.
・STEM Ready specifications that support programming with the dedicated scratch application “Tsukurutchi” and Arduino IDE . The dedicated app "Tsukurutchi" is scratch programming software that is ideal for introductory and learning programming. It is also perfect for children's programming learning in advance. The online manual is published on Github, and anyone can try programming from the basics.
- You can enjoy the fun of moving it as you wish with an infrared remote control or joystick (sold separately)! Use the included general-purpose remote control to try out various movements, or use the optional joystick to enjoy brisk movements. I paid attention to the movements so that you can experience the joy of having your own robot move at will. Please enjoy the smooth and somewhat humorous movements of walking on four legs.
