    These robot platforms were designed with versatility in mind. We wanted to build a workhorse that could be used in many applications. These applications may include, education, research and development, service and inspection, surveillance and security, exploration, hazardous duty, trade shows, robotic competitions, personal projects, or even entertainment.

    The MMP platforms come with dual PWM electronic speed controls that utilize the R/C standard control signal. This is the same signal that is used to control standard hobby servo motors. The signal  is a 1.0 ms to 2.0 ms pulse rate with 1.5 ms being the "dead zone". This means that by varying a pulsed signal with timing between 1 and 2 milliseconds you can control the left and right hand drive motors in fully proportional forward and reverse.

    Utilizing this control format allows the use of  standard hobby receivers to control the MMP's as well as most micro controllers such as the Basic Stamp, the Scott Edwards servo controller board and  Lynxmotion's First Step and Next Step boards. This also means that the MMP's are great for directly transplanting your robots "brains" and sensors from existing projects and kits.

    Alternately, you may also choose the Serial controller option, so you may control this unit from a computer or other RS-232 interface.

    The MMP platforms come with a hard, Black Anodized chassis. This gives them a tougher scratch-resistant coating and a nice look.
