KELVIN® Kre8® Autonomous Car Kit w/ Assembled Genie® PCB418 Control Board

Stock Number:

Product Overview

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)! 

Build a basic robotic car that measures 17 x 18 cm when assembled. Once built, the car can be taken apart and rebuilt by the next group. Expand the car with autonomous control using the included Genie® PCB418 Control Board and USB download cable. Control [2] DC motors moving forwards and backwards. Requires [2] 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. 

Ideal for students in grades 6-9 with teacher support.
