So you want to get mobile with your Arduino, or other micro controller, and you aren’t sure where to start? The Maker Shed has 2 different platforms to get you started. Choose either the 2WD or 4WD kit depending on your needs. Both platforms include geared motors, wheels, and a high-strength aluminum alloy body. Keep in mind, you still need a power supply and motor driver, but these kits get you miles ahead of starting from scratch.
