Scoutwalker 3 Robot Kit
Solarbotics is pleased to
introduce the ScoutWalker III as a very worthy successor to the
ScoutWalker I design.
Being more capable,
less expensive, and more expandable than any other two-motor walker design
on the market makes this kit ideal for your walking robot experiments!
The ScoutWalker III
utilizes BEAM Microcore technology in a very robust topology to make this
two-motor walker have unusually good agility.This kit features:
- GM2 and GM9 gear
- Steel subframe
phototropic behavior via IR sensors
- Two-stage turning
gaits (gentle / hard)
- Dual tactile
Sumovore microcontroller brainboards for building "horse and rider"
configurations! Influence or simply take full control of the ScoutWalker
- it's up to you and your Sumovore Brainboard!
brainboards are hardware compatible, but we're still working on our
version of the software. In the meanwhile, feel free to attack this
project using your own BS2, PIC or ATMega8L brainboard. All the
connections are documented!

Solarbotics started as a company specializing in
kits based on BEAM technology, which meant building simple, effective
devices using (often) strange ways. They learned early on that the
documentation is not something to do poorly, so you'll find that
their kits come with very complete instructions with many, many photos.
Solarbotics uses quality components, and clever circuit board design to
make your build as successful as possible
