NO PRIOR ELECTRONIC KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED
Autonomous Function * Light Following * Object Avoidance
This has to be one of the ‘coolest’ looking kits in the Arduino market. Custom designed aluminum chassis with a nice protective black coat that prevents the surface from scratching and oxidizing. The strategically placed holes on the chassis allows you to easily attach more sensors or other devices to the frame for more functions.
Kit comes with everything you need to make your own autonomously operating robot. Not only that, it is smart enough to ‘chase’ after the brightest light in the room. With this function, you can use a flash light as your remote! If you prefer using an IR remote, that works too.
We have included lessons that teaches you how to use two IR Detectors to give the robot object avoidance ability.
The booklet that comes with this kit is close to 100 pages thick! Lots of great info, lessons, and codes.
We hope you enjoy this first kit in a series of three that we plan on developing!

Once you have downloaded the project codes for the kit, the BONUS code is the Robot_autonavigation. Not only will your robot run autonomously and avoiding objects, it will also chase after the brightest light. All you have to do is click on the PLAY button on the remote. One thing you do have to adjust is the wiring on the IR Follower. At present, all wires are plugged into the Digital pins. For the Bonus Code to work, you need to MOVE all the jumpers from the Digital pins to the Analog pins on the IR Follower. Once that is done, you are ready to go. Enjoy!
