Zumo Robots and Accessories
The Pololu Zumo chassis is a small, tracked robot platform that is less than 10 cm on each side — small enough to qualify for Mini Sumo competitions — and works with a variety of micro metal gearmotors to allow for a customizable combination of torque and speed. You can use this chassis as the base for your custom robot or get one of our complete Zumo robots, which include electronics designed specifically for the Zumo chassis.
The video below introduces the first of these such robots, the Zumo robot for Arduino:
We have since released two newer versions with built-in programmable microcontrollers, displays, and more sensors (e.g. including encoders for closed-loop motor control and proximity sensors for obstacle detection):
- Zumo 32U4 robot, which features an Arduino-compatible ATmega32U4 microcontroller
- Zumo 2040 robot, which features a Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller
The following video shows just a few of the fun things you can do with a stock Zumo 32U4 robot:
This high-performance tracked robot measures less than 10×10 cm, small enough to qualify for Mini Sumo. It is based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU and its features include metal gearmotors w/ quadrature encoders, proximity sensors, line sensors, a full IMU, six RBG LEDs, and a graphical OLED display.
The highly integrated Zumo 32U4 OLED improves upon the original Zumo 32U4 by adding a 128×64 graphical OLED display. Other key features include a built-in Arduino-compatible ATmega32U4 MCU, encoders for closed-loop motor control, and proximity sensors for obstacle detection.

The Pololu Zumo chassis is a small, tracked robot platform that is less than 10 cm on each side, allowing it to qualify for Mini Sumo competitions. The chassis is composed of black ABS and features a compartment for four AA batteries and sockets for two micro metal gearmotors. It ships as a kit with two silicone tracks, two drive and two idler sprockets, a 1/16″ acrylic mounting plate, and mounting hardware. (Motors and batteries are not included.)
Add a splash of color to your Zumo robot by replacing its standard black sprockets with these red ones. This set includes two drive sprockets and two idler sprockets that work with the tracks and sprocket mounting hardware already included with the Zumo.
