In this recipe, we are going to see which components we need to build a mobile robot based on Arduino, and of course how to build the robot itself. At the end of the recipe, you will have a fully-functional mobile robot that is ready to be programmed.
As we saw in the previous recipe, we are going to use a rover-like robot platform for this chapter. The one I selected comes with the chassis, but also with two DC motors already built-in. Of course, you can use the platform of your choice, but you will need to adapt the different recipes of this book for any other platform.
