Duinotech Mini Smart Car Robot Kit with Micro: bit – STEM: A fun to build robot that uses a micro: bit microcontroller board (sold separately) that kids can code or control using their Smartphone via Bluetooth. The kit is easy to assemble and no soldering is required. The included infrared and ultrasonic modules connect with the micro: bit, which enables the robot to follow a line, avoid or follow obstacles.
Other features include an onboard buzzer to produce sounds, an 18 RGB LED ring for amazing colour effects, and a photocell to detect light intensity. Two large RGB lights on the front are used to indicate the robot’s direction as it travels. Once kids are competent using the micro: bit, they can create their own code to get the robot to use the micro: bit’s accelerometer, compass, and 5×5 LED matrix.
Make learning fun with STEM toys.
STEM toy robotic car is an easy to program 2 wheel obstacle avoidance and line tracking robot. Coding your program is easy using the standard BBC Micro: bit software. It’s the perfect introduction to robotic toys for children which can be self-coded with instruction from teachers. It has been designed with a BBC micro: bit slot on board, this means a classroom may only need a few STEM robot cars to cater for multiple BBC boards.
Each child can program and code their micro: bit, plug it in and then try it out in the robot car to see if it works. Wiring and construction have been designed to be as simple as possible. To control simply use any standard open-source Bluetooth control app on a smartphone or tablet.
It is fitted with a passive buzzer for playing music tones, a module for controlling 18 RGB LED colours and a photocell for detecting light intensity. It’s also fitted with two RGB LEDs as directional movement indicators.
Easy to follow instruction booklet provided.
