RedBot Robot Kit: Chassis and Sensors, Programmed in Arduino US$44.95

RedBot Robot Kit: Chassis and Sensors, Programmed in Arduino

The latest RedBot Kit, though no longer entirely red, remains a robotic development platform capable of teaching two-motor robotics and sensor integration. This kit comes with the RedBot Mainboard, the Shadow Chassis, a handful of sensors, and everything required for assembly (other than a screwdriver, USB cable, batteries and maybe needle-nose pliers). The picture to the right shows an assembled kit for illustration purposes only.

The RedBot is a modular robotic development platform that works with the Arduino IDE. The RedBot Mainboard is a motor driver and Arduino combination with various headers and connections, eliminating the need to stack multiple shields to get the desired functionality. By simply connecting a USB mini-B cable, you can program it in the Arduino IDE using the example code provided below, or your own. The Arduino IDE treats the Redbot Mainboard as though it were an Arduino Uno. The Mainboard has an XBee socket so you can add wireless communication to the robot.

The Shadow Chassis is an economical robot platform with a lot of versatility. The chassis plates and mounts are cut from ABS plastic and utilize the Actobotics 0.77" and 1.50" hub patterns for sensors, controllers, power, etc. Simply snap each panel together and you'll be able to attach everything in no time. The chassis does require some basic assembly, but detailed instructions are included in the RedBot Kit (and you can download the instructions below so you can see ahead of time what is involved).

Rounding out the kit's included parts are three Line Follower sensors and one Accelerometer sensor. 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: This kit ships without batteries. You will need to provide four AA batteries.

RedBot Robot Kit Resources

In the Arduino Library, the Library_Test and SmallWorldBot examples utilize optional components that are not included with the kit. You can order those optional components using the checkboxes below. The example code and the assembly instructions assume that you will order two of the mechanical bumpers. You can change the quantity during checkout just remember to click the Update button after changing the number in the box, or your order will continue without the change.
