Formula AllCode Deluxe Kit: Buggy, Walls, Activity Mat, Case US$353.10

RB7971
Formula AllCode Deluxe Kit: Buggy, Walls, Activity Mat, Case


  • Host-independent robot
  • Compatible with Flowcode 6, Raspberry Pi, Android & Apple smartphones, MATLAB & LabVIEW, Windows & Mac OS, Visual BASIC/C#/C++, and more
  • Rechargeable battery and micro-USB cable included
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • Free complete course included
  • This Deluxe Kit includes the Formula AllCode robot with a set of Maze Walls and the double-sided Activity Mat, shipped in a neat carrying case as pictured.

    Formula AllCode Overview

    The Formula AllCode robot buggy with Bluetooth capability can be programmed from any host with a Bluetooth connection. It constitutes a complete course in robotics with an impressive specification set. The buggy itself includes LEDs, distance and light sensors, line-following sensors, integrated metal gears and encoders, microphone, speaker and more.

    Whether you are an advanced robotics user or a beginner looking to develop your robotics knowledge and understanding, the Formula AllCode is perfect for you. The free accompanying course includes a range of activities with varied levels of difficulty, from simple line following to maze solving. The system runs on a 16-bit dsPIC microcontroller and its Application Programming Interface (API) makes it programmable from just about anything, including Android and Apple iOS devices, Raspberry Pi, Flowcode 6, MATLAB, LabVIEW, Python, App Inventor, Visual Basic/C#/C++, Blocky, and many more.

    Formula AllCode Free Course Overview

    The free online course allows you to complete a range of tasks with increasing levels of difficulty, building your understanding of robotics and programming as you progress up to full maze solving. Course projects include the following:

    RoboIO
    Use on-board switches and LEDs to understand inputs, outputs and binary operation.
    Robopop
    Use the on-board speaker to generate tones and music themes. Use the motors to make the robot dance to the music.
    Motor drive
    Program the robot to drive the motors with a specific speed and direction so that predetermined figures such as a triangle, a square, a circle or a spiral are made.
    Line follow
    Use the on-board line sensors to follow a black line on a white background. Extend the exercise with various markings on the line-following mat.
    See the light
    Use the on-board light sensor to drive the buggy toward a light source.
    Lefty
    Use the left-hand wall-following technique to solve a simple maze.
    Drive feedback
    Understand how wheel encoders are used to give feedback on exact distance traveled by each wheel, and calibrate driving for each wheel.
    Drag race
    Travel as fast as possible over a straight course, following a white line, then brake and stop short of hitting the end wall.
    Daytona
    Do three laps around the maze as fast as possible. The fastest mouse wins. One second will be added for every time you hit a wall or make a 'touch'.
    Navigation
    Use the internal compass sensor to guide the robot along a path to buried treasure.
    Tilt & turn
    Develop apps in iPhone and Android that control the robot using the tilt sensor in your mobile phone/tablet.
    Stat panel
    Develop an iPhone or Android app that shows robot sensor status as it drives along a maze.
    Full maze
    Solve an unknown maze by mapping it first and then driving the fastest courses as quickly as possible.
    G forces
    Measure acceleration and wheel slip to optimize speed along a maze.
    Pimp my ride
    Develop a circuit board that attaches to the Formula AllCode robot using the servo outputs.

    If you need multiple Formula AllCode robots for classroom activity, see the Standard Class Set (five buggies) or Deluxe Class Set (10 buggies).
