Bigtrak XTR eXtra Technology Rover new for 2012
« on: November 15, 2011, 05:07:16 pm »
Hi Friends

Introducing the new Bigtrak XTR coming in 2012, my company Conceptioneering licensed this to Zeon Tech. We think it will make a great low cost robot development platform!  With its unique magnetic clutch skid/steer drive mechanism, it moves in straight lines! this was one of the big innovations of the original Bigtrak back in the eighties. XTR has 2 universal accessory ports with lots of accessories already developed (see sizzle below) and more planned including ultrasonic ranging and thermal tracking etc.

XTR is now starting to get blogged.

Bigtrak does so much stuff, see the following sizzle to see some of the functionality



The XTR wireless camera is really cool!  At the end of the video you can see XTR tracking and following a coloured ball this is part of the experimental software that we are currently developing as part of our XTR advanced features trials.

Hope you guys like this!

Very cool indeed! My son wanted an original but was too young at the time. This could
offer an extreme and vast amount of creative fun!!

Good luck with this!! O0

Wow Bigtrak takes me back a bit.  My cousin had one and I was green with jealousy.  Good luck with this and thanks for popping in.
