Chassis for robot car. Based upon an incomplete Murtaza video series, using a rather expensive robot chassis kit, which is covered in Robot Car – Jetson Nano and Arduino (I think).

The ideal car would have:

  • Two tiers, possiblly three
  • Aluminium frame
  • 12V gears motors with encoders
  • Screw fix wheels (not the TT motor clip on
  • Built in encoders (rather than the HC-020K encoder wheels for TT motors)


Update 2022 – JGB37-520 motor

There is also a JGB37-550

Motor with encoder 12V: JGB37-520

Note: These motors are not interchangable with the yellow TT motors – the fixings and mounting holes are different. The TT motor is mounted from above, whereas the JGB37 is mounted by the axle face

The unfinished Murtaza project used these motors in the videos listed in Robot Car – Jetson Nano and Arduino
