Terminator HK Tank ~ Arduino + Raspberry Pi Project

The Future Has Not Been Written.

In the Terminator films we are given glimpses of the future wars; with bipedal robotic skeletons, flying drones and ground tanks (known as HK’s – Hunter Killers) hunting down humans – Check out the Terminator Wiki.

DFRobot contacted me the other month and asked if I wanted to try out some of their stuff – I had a look through their products and found this awesome robot chassis: Gladiator. They sent it to me and while building it I realised the design was starting to resemble a HK tank mentioned above:

Spoiler: Mine won’t be as cool as this.

So I decided to chuck some extra hardware at it alongside some cool machine learning stuff and really make a cool representation of the HK in Arduino/Raspberry Pi form.

So thanks to DFRobot for most of the gear in this project! Check them out at DFRobot.com

Lets dive right in…
