Overview:

The Romi chassis is a differential-drive mobile robot platform with a diameter of 6.5″ (165 mm) and an integrated battery holder for six AA batteries (not included). The drive wheels are located on a diameter of the circular base plate, allowing for turns or spinning in place. A large, fixed ball caster in the rear provides a smooth third point of contact, and a second ball caster (not included) can optionally be added to the front. The chassis uses 70×8mm Pololu wheels and Mini Plastic Gearmotors with extended backshafts to enable quadrature encoders for position feedback.

The Romi chassis has an abundance of general-purpose mounting holes and slots intended for various sizes of screws (not included) such as #2-56, #4-40, M2, and M3. These holes can be used for mounting your electronics, such as your microcontroller, motor drivers, and sensors.

The plastic components making up the chassis are available in six colors, either individually (for use as replacement parts or to make custom color combinations) or in kits that include motors and battery contacts.

Kit contents:

  • One pink Romi chassis base plate
  • Two mini plastic gearmotors (120:1 HP with offset output and extended motor shaft)
  • A pair of pink Romi chassis motor clips
  • A pair of white 70×8mm Pololu Wheels
  • One pink Romi chassis ball caster kit
  • One Romi chassis battery contact set

Additional things you will need:

  • Six AA batteries (we recommend rechargeable AA NiMH cells); see the user’s guide for more details about power options.
  • Electronics to control the motors (e.g. the Romi 32U4 Control Board).

You will likely also need a soldering iron for connecting your motors and batteries to your electronics.
