This Kit contains mechanical parts and electronic modules for you to start exploring the robot world, it can be used to build a robot tank or a three-wheel robot car.
With the following electronic modules: Makeblock Orion controller(Arduino UNO compatiable), ultrasonic ranger sensor, IR remote controller and IR receiver, an IR contrtol robot or an ultrasonic obstacle-avoiding robot can be build.
The Me series electronic modules are easy-to-use, very friendly to beginners.
Please refer to the illustration below to wire.
You can download the bluetooth control App to by scanning the QR code, or visit app.makeblock.cc to know more details. If there’s some problem with the App, please check “Help” in it.
Working with mBlock–Hack the Physical World
The Starter Robot Kit supports mBlock perfectly which allow you reprogramming your robot by simply drag and joint the blocks of mBlock. No more difficult coding.
mBlock is a free modified version of Scratch 2.0 developed by MIT Media Lab, mBlock add some hardware-related blocks in the original Scratch, with these blocks, users can read sensors, control motors and even a whole robot.
Besides blocks for the basic microcontroller functionalities, analog and digital writes and reads, PWM outputs. There are also blocks for each specific electronic modules, such as ultrasonic sensor, temperature sensor, light sensor, DC motor driver, stepper driver, etc. With these blocks, it’s simple to interact with many kinds of electronic modules.
Working with Arduino IDE–Learn Programming the Fun Way
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible , easy-to-use hardware and software.The Arduino software consists of a development environment(IDE) and the core libraries. The IDE is written in Java and based on the Processing development environment.
