This robot tank was built by [amando96]. It is designed to run on all sorts of terrains, can be controlled by user or automatic. It’s based on the Arduino.
The All-Terrain mobility Tank uses two 18v motors. These motors are strong in torques and speed. PWM is used to control the speed of these motors.
Here is the track.

The design of the Chassis.
Chassis is built out of aluminium strips and lots of steel rod, gives it a robust but easy to work with chassis, fairy heavy though.
Control of the All-Terrain mobility Tank
It is using the Arduino to filter the radio controlled signals and this is the Motor Controller remote. 2 channels, both invert-able and trim-able, and good range.
However the Arduino seems like an overkill for this because there are many pins left unused.
