Assembling the platform is relatively simple. The first part will be the assembly of the chassis provided by DFRobot. Instructions are provided and easy to follow. One suggestion when assembling the chassis is to install the optical encoders before installing the motors . Instructions are provided on the DFRobot’s website:

Here’s what the chassis looks like when assembled. Next  is to wire up the components then upload the code to begin using the platform.
