This robot by Andrew Gray is a mobile platform that a parrot can use for transportation. When the parrot leaves the platform, it uses a vision system to autonomously dock with a base station. Bird Buggy uses Wild Thumper wheels, Pololu 25D mm metal gearmotors, and a Pololu TB6612FNG dual motor driver carrier.

This Arduino-controlled robot commands the Rover 5 chassis and uses a LSM303DLH 3D Compass and Accelerometer Carrier with Voltage Regulators to determine which direction to go. The caterpillar treads were replaced with the Wild Thumper wheels.
