The RedBot Kit is a robotic development platform which includes the RedBot Mainboard, the Magician Chassis, a handful of sensors, and everything required for assembly.
This item has been discontinued. Please check out the new RedBot Kit:
The Redbot Mainboard is a modular robotic development platform that works with the Arduino IDE. The RedBot is a motor driver and Ardiuno combination with various headers and connections, eliminating the need to stack multiple shields to get desired. By simply connecting a USB mini-B cable, you can program it in the Arduino IDE using our example code, or your own.
The Magician Chassis is an economical robot platform with a lot of versatility. It features two gearmotors with 65mm wheels and a caster. The chassis plates are cut from acrylic with a wide variety of mounting holes for sensors, controllers, power, etc. The chassis does require some basic assembly but detailed instructions are included in the RedBot Kit.
Three Line Follower Sensors and one Accelerometer Sensor are included. The Line Follower sensor gives your robot the ability to detect lines or nearby objects using infrared light. The Accelerometer sensor provides bump and motion detection by measuring acceleration forces on the x, y, and z axes.
Note: Requires assembly and 4 AA batteries.
