BASIC Stamp 2 Boe-Bot Robot Kit with Textbook US$219.00

BASIC Stamp 2 Boe-Bot Robot Kit with Textbook

The Boe-Bot Robot Kit contains a Board of Education carrier board, a BASIC Stamp 2 module, the Boe-Bot Parts to build a wheeled robot, and the 310-page Robotics with the Boe-Bot text. The Robotics text includes 38 activities for the Boe-Bot Robot with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, you will learn quickly how the Boe-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience is necessary.

Over 90,000 Boe-Bot robots are in use by hobbyists, educators and students around the world, so you can find a wealth of knowledge and examples to draw from.

You will assemble the Boe-Bot Robot on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the continuous-rotation servo motors and the BASIC Stamp Board of Education. Many mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment or off-the-shelf Parallax add-ons. The rear wheel is a slider ball held in place with a cotter pin. Drive wheels are molded to fit precisely on the servo spline and are held in place with a small screw.

What really makes the Boe-Bot unique is the BASIC Stamp microcontroller's flexibility of programming when coupled with breadboard circuit construction. Following along in Robotics with the Boe-Bot, you learn about embedded projects from wiring and components to programming and mechanical dependencies. The kit includes a set of passive components (wires, resistors, capacitors), sensors (photoresistors, bumpers, infrared sensors) and hardware (whisker touch-sensor kit) to complete the different projects.

The Boe-Bot Robot takes about 1-2 hours to put together, though each project in the Robotics text provides a unique new experience of wiring and source code tuning. Completing the entire set of projects takes 50 hours and is suitable for anybody over 12 years of age. The USB Board of Education (and BS2-IC) may be removed to be used as your platform for the other kits in the Stamps in Class series.
