The EasyConnect Robot kit can be a follow-on project to the Easy-Connect Kit which introduces the ideas of Physical Computing, using secure plug-in cables for many different sensors and actuators. It introduces both the MIXLY Drag-drop coding system and the Arduino IDE sketch coding. See it HERE: EasyConnectKit

Robot Kit Capabilities

  • External power supply range: 7-12V
  • Current Range: minimum 800mA
  • Motor Speed: 6.0V 100rpm/min
  • Motor control is driven by onboard TB6612 motor driver chip
  • The Robot can be programmed for 3 types of operation:
    • Collision Avoidance, using the Ultrasonic Sensor
    • Line Following, using the line tracking modules
    • Remote control with a Smart Phone app on an Android Phone.
  • Three groups of line tracking modules, to detect black-white line with high accuracy and can be used for table edge anti-fall control as well.
  • Ultrasonic module is used to detect the obstacle distance, avoiding the front obstacle when the distance detected is less than a certain value.
  • Bluetooth wireless module can be paired with Bluetooth device on mobile phone to remotely control the KEYBOT. Turn off the Bluetooth first when programming.
  • The shield has added two servo interfaces.

Robot Coding

Robot can be programmed with the MIXLY drag-drop system, or with the Arduino IDE. Here is an example Motor Test sketch in MIXLY:
