Actobotics Nomad Project – Part I

NomadFrom: ServoCity

I received my Actobotics Nomad kit some time ago and built it right away. This is “The Beast On My Bench”. Since this platform is well suited for outdoor mobility I intend to make this one fully RC capable but with this one I am shooting for Unmanned Rover controlled remotely from the desktop. Let’s see where this leads us!

Project Plan:

Full RC (an ultimately autonomous as well) rover capabilities with remote operation (video/sound) capabilities and sensor telemetry.


Rolling Chasis Complete & Motor Controller Mounts added.

Next Steps:

Motor Controllers and RC Hook Up

I will do my utmost to make progress on this project by next issue and report on what’s going on with it… the successes and failures. I sometimes learn more from a failure than from a success so let’s see how much of each we find. If something strikes you about this project… please email me at with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
