Enhance your robotics program, technology class, or science exploration and introduce students to the revolutionary future of transportation - Autonomous Cars (A Self-Driving Robotic Car)!
This assembled basic robotic car is already expanded with a Genie® PCB418 Control Board to control  DC motors moving forwards and backwards. Programming the autonomous car requires USB Download cable (one per class needed) and  AA batteries.
Planning the car's route on the computer is easily done without having to learn program coding. Add conditions like what to do if an obstacle is sensed (left sensor?, right sensor? or both sensors?, go back?, how far?) or the destination is reached (make a left turn? Continue?). When finished, download the program to the car using the required download cable. Disconnect the download cable and turn the power switch on. The car will then move as programmed on the class floor or teacher-designed mat with additional obstacles.
The assembled car measures 17 x 18cm. Once built, the car can be taken apart and rebuilt by the next group. Ideal for students in grades 6-9 with teacher support.
