GearBot is entirely driven by gear systems, which are a type of mechanical transmission. Gears are essentially circular wheels with teeth around their circumference, and the teeth mesh with other gears to transmit power. As gears rotate, their teeth contact the teeth on other gears, thus forcing the other gears to rotate as well. GearBot is a simple system composed of multiple gear systems drive the robot forward.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
