Mechatronics building blocks
To build a complete mobile robot requires further electronic key and mechatronic components:
- A power distribution board (PDB) supplies power to the KELO drives and other components, includes the electronics for the charging system, provides various protection mechanism (against overtemperature, overcurrent, overvoltage), interfaces the onboard PC with the KELO drives, and can activated and deactivate various onboard components.
- An I/O board processes various digital and analogue input and output signals, generates PWM signals to control DC motors..
A cost-efficient high-precision IMU/gyro provides heading information for a robot with an unprecedented accuracy and drift.
