Under the hood of the robot we can find some interesting electronics parts.

Chassis of the robot is made entirely from aluminum and duralumin. Four high-power 6 V brushed DC motors (280 RPM, 6.5 kg-cm) with metal spur gearbox (34:1) are controlled from the VNH5019 Dual Motor Driver that operate from 5.5 to 24 V and can deliver a continuous 12 A (and 30 A peak) per motor. In addition, the robot is equipped with bluetooth module BTM222, GPS NEO-6M uBlox and MinIMU-0 v2 module (Gyro L3GD20, Accelerometer and Compass LSM303DLHC).
