Build a rolling robot with an Arduino Uno microcontroller.
- This text was written with hobbyists, robotics summer camps, and grade 7-12 classrooms in mind
Using one of our supported kits below, just follow the clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations in the beginner-friendly text, Robotics with the BOE Shield-Bot for Arduino. Paired with a supported robotics kit, it can be used as a California A-G approved elective course.
Programming the Arduino microcontroller
Calibrating the servo motors and monitoring servo signals with LED lights
Assembling and testing the BOE Shield-Bot
Navigation basics and pre-programmed maneuvers
Tactile navigation with whisker switches
Light-sensitive navigation with phototransistors
Navigating with infrared headlights for object detection
Shadow vehicle navigation with distance detection
