Rover 5 is a new breed of tracked robot chassis designed specifically for students and hobbyist. Unlike conventional tracked chassis the clearance can be adjusted by rotating the gearboxes in 5-degree increments. “Stretchy” rubber treads maintain tension as the clearance is raised.
Each gearbox has an 87:1 ratio includes an optical quadrature encoder that gives 1000 pulses over 3 revolutions of the output shaft.
Inside the chassis are 4 noise suppression coils at the bottom and a battery holder that accepts 6x AA batteries. NiMH Rechargeables should be used, because they provide the correct 7.2 Volt power and because they last longer and have a higher current output than Alkaline batteries.
- Motor rated voltage: 7.2V
- Motor stall current: 2.5A
- Output shaft stall torque: 10Kg/cm
- Gearbox ratio: 86.8:1
- Encoder type: Quadrature
- Encoder resolution: 1000 state changes per 3 wheel rotations
- Speed: 1Km/hr 10 in/s (25 cm/s)
- dimensions: 9.5" × 9" × 3" (24.5 × 22.5 × 7.5 cm)
- weight: 1.6 lb (0.72 kg)

This is the Rover 5 chassis running about outdoors. Although the chassis is not water or sand proof it is reasonably well sealed and can be used in some outdoor enviroments such as the back yard.
This makes it ideal for experimentation with navigation systems that must deal with direct sunlight and objects such as long grass wich is not easily detected by simple sensors such as ultrasound.
