This kit comes with a booklet covering all the hands-on lessons you need to get started. Every step is explained clearly with helpful pictures. We make sure that common issues with building and coding an Arduino mobile robot are properly addressed in this booklet. It also includes fun facts to feed the curious minds!
There is no soldering involved, allowing more young makers to take part in the building process. To make things even simpler, the detailed schematic diagram and mounting location of the parts are printed inside the box. You can build and connect with greater confidence as you embark on this digital making journey!This mobile robot kit is based on Maker UNO (Arduino Uno compatible).
We designed the packaging box of PikaBot to be reusable. It's not onely used for packing the complete set of components needed for the project, it serves as the robot base and cover of your PikaBot mobile robot too!
What can your PikaBot do? It can follow lines, a simple yet practical navigation that is widely used in AGV (Automated Guided Vehicles) and many robotics competitions. The kit comes with a pair of infrared sensors which you can calibrate & program to recognize black and white surfaces. PikaBot also includes an ultrasonic distance sensor so it can detect obstacles in front of it.
Besides using the Arduino IDE as taught in our user guide booklet, you can also program PikaBot with mBlock block-based programmming interface. Check out this tutorial to learn more.
With the beginner-friendly Maker UNO as the controller, everyone can build and program this mobile robot. We have also included
To make life even easier, we have prepared:
Last but not least, we've designed some expressive PikaBot stickers for Telegram messenger for all you PikaBot lovers! If you are a Telegram user, grab the sticker pack here: https://t.me/addstickers/cytron_pikabot. Have fun!
