Robotics Smart Machines: Rovers & Vehicles Engineering Kit gives kids a simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics that lets them build eight different wheeled robot, motorized machines controlled by programs and an ultrasound sensor. Robotics is a vast, thrilling, and sometimes overwhelming interdisciplinary field involving physics, engineering, and computer science.

  • Code the programs using an easy, visual programming app on a tablet or smartphone, which connects to the robot models via a wireless Bluetooth connection
  • Visual programming language allows you to command the robots' motors to move at different times, different power levels, in different directions, and in response to the data from the sensor
  • Ultrasonic sensor works on the same principle as sonar sending out sound waves, which bounce off objects, interprets the echoes returning to it, and from this detects objects in the path of the sensor
  • Using the app interface, program the robots you build to behave based on the feedback coming from the ultrasound sensor
  • After learning how the technology works, build and program your own robots
  • Full-color, 64-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models and teaches them about robotics in the real world
  • For System Operating Requirements see Specs Tab
  • Engineering Kit contains: Manual, 233 pieces
  • Ages: 8-14


Robot Models include:
  • Turtle that drives around and quickly avoids obstacles in its path
  • Rover that first looks around for your hand and once detected, moves toward it and follows it around
  • Desert Explorer with wheels on legs; first it drives around, but when it detects an object in its range, it starts "walking" slowly toward it
  • Dancing Bot Experiment with altering the program of a dancing robot so it dances to the beat of a song you play for it
  • Scout Rover Set up an obstacle course and watch it use its ultrasonic sensor to navigate around the obstacles
  • Helicopter spins its rotors and then raises its landing gear when you lift it off the tabletop
  • Other fun robots include: Dozer with a bulldozer blade and Scorpion with a stinger tail
