This paper presents the design of a low-cost reconfigurable modular robotic platform. Modular robots can come in different forms involving several small modules attached together to form a working and moving robot. This robotic platform aims to be used in future robotics courses as a teaching tool or a prototype for research in modular robotics. The designed prototype is reprogrammable. The overall design consists of Base Module Design, Module Casing, Locking Mechanisms, Movement, Communications, Sensors, and Controller. The designed modules can be interchanged easily, and be able to move in a variety of ways.
