Pololu Range and Robots
Pololu is one of Active Robots’ most popular ranges.
Founded in 2000 by three students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Pololu is a renowned electronics manufacturer serving education, maker, and professional engineering industries. It has products ranging from sensors and motion control electronics to motors and wheels to complete robots.
Their quality products are well-engineered. Pololu manufactures most of their modules in-house with their automated assembly machines that can manipulate modern electronics component packages.
This equipment allows Pololu to develop new prototypes quickly, and to make small manufacturing runs that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive. This means makers can take their own projects from idea to reality.
On top of their robust and precise motors and hubs, Pololu also manufacture their own Zumo Robots. The Pololu Zumo chassis is a small, tracked robot platform that is less than 10 cm on each side. This means it is small enough to qualify for Mini Sumo competitions. It also works with a variety of micro metal gear-motors to allow for a customisable combination of torque and speed. You can use this chassis as the base for your custom robot or get one of the more complete Zumo robots, which include electronics designed specifically for the Zumo chassis.
As a Pololu Distributor based in the UK, Active Robots stocks a range of Pololu servos, gearboxes, linear actuators, regulators, stepper motors and controllers. These are all shipped direct from our UK warehouse.
