With the camera looking straight ahead it is 6″ high. It features a wide view color 7 IR camera so you can see in both dark and light places with a pan-and-tilt system giving you full coverage of the space you are in. The robot is controlled wirelessly with a simple RC controller and it drags a cable to get the video signal back. Simply plug in the RCA cable into the supplied LCD screen to get the video feed from the robot. It performs exceptionally well for its size and is intended as a small maneuverable customizable tracked robot platform. This makes for a simple and robust system.
