BitCar robot kit (micro:bit board not included)
The Bitcar robotic kit is based on the features of the BBC micro:bit board and the Grove system. The result is an autonomous and customizable vehicle, to be programmed on MakeCode.
Including €0.05 for ecotax
BitCar robot kit: an effective way to get started in mobile robotics
The BitCar kit consists of a chassis, two metal gear motors, two wheels and a power coupler. It is very simple to assemble and has all the basic electronics that will allow you to get started in mobile robotics without stumbling.
BitCar thus integrates a buzzer, two line follower modules, and an infrared receiver for remote control. You can also install an ultrasonic detector and thus allow your robot vehicle to avoid obstacles by itself. If you want to drive your BitCar with a Bluetooth connection, this is also possible with the BitPlayer controller. In this case, you will need a micro:bit board for the BitCar kit, and one for the BitPlayer.
Easy to program and improve
The BitCar kit leaves room for imagination thanks to the Grove compatibility of the micro:bit board. Use the remaining free ports to add your accessories: sensors, LED arrays, etc.
The BitCar robot kit, is based on micro:bit and can of course be programmed on MakeCode and MicroPython. Microsoft MakeCode offers a fun solution for learning robotic programming with an easy-to-access, open-source programming editor.
