This robot has everything you’ll need to build your own floor roving robot quickly. This can be the starting point for a Science project, an experimentation platform, a personal robot or just a place for you to start playing around with robotics. You build it, you can extend it, and there is no soldering, drilling or sawing to do so. If you are in the Uk mainland - postage is Free. The example code, usage guide and tutorials are also FREE.
Included in the kit was 4 wheel drive robot platform, an Arduino (Uno or Leonardo) compatible board, an H-Bridge Motor controller to connect the Arduino to the motors, the required cables with plenty to spare for extension/experimentation later, a battery box and stuff to assemble it all.
Build it, add stuff to make it chase a ball, run around the house, impress the kids (or build it with the kids), modify it - make it light up or noisy, make it spray water to put out toy fires. Deliver toy food from a kitchen to a sibling.
This kit is designed to be extended and modified - with add ons or with your own ideas. See the Getting Started guide for more ideas on what you can do with it.
This robot requires NO SOLDERING, drilling, sawing or hot-glue and only a little programming. You will need to add 6xAA batteries, a computer and just a little of your time to assemble it with a single flat head screwdriver.
A full online owners construction guide is provided for step-by-step instructions to build your robot and put it through its first moves.
Batteries are not included.
Time to build your own robot! Using a Raspberry Pi with parts and some time, you can use my book to learn how to make and program a robot with automatic behaviours.
