It’s every aspiring maker’s dream to make things that move, and in this workshop we’ll do exactly that with a 2-wheel-drive robotic Arduino “car” that wanders around, senses obstacles, and reverses if it bumps into things. Or if have more of a creative flair, you can even make your robot dance.
Here’s what you get
- 4 hours of fun!
- Lasercut acrylic chassis, with CAD template so you can make modifications and lasercut your own
- 9V battery
- L298 motor driver board
- Tires and gear motors
- Caster wheel
- Servo motor
- Limit switches: used as bump sensors
- Ultrasonic rangefinder: used to detect obstacles, before bumping into them
- Lots of screws and nuts and bolts
- Desktop / laptop (Windows / Mac)
- Arduino IDE (free)
- Arduino UNO or Arduino-compatible board
- [OPTIONAL] Wire cutters, phillips screwdriver, and small pliers, if you have any handy
You can purchase an Arduino UNO from us separately if you need it.
