Kitronik’s :MOVE mini buggy kit

$50.59

The Kitronik :MOVE mini buggy kit for the BBC micro:bit provides a fun introduction to robotics. The :MOVE mini is a 2 wheeled robot that is suitable forautonomous operation, remote control projects via a Bluetooth application or being controlled using a second BBC micro:bit as a controller via the microbits radio functionality. The Kitronik :MOVE mini is powered by two continuous rotation servo motors. The speed of these servos can be controlled by simply altering the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal to the servo, which is easy to do using the Servo blocks in the Microsoft MakeCode Block editor. We have also produced Kitronik custom blocks for the Servo:Lite to make the task of coding as quick and painless as possible, see the resources section at the foot of this page for more information.

The buggy also has 5 x RGB individually addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible), which can be used as indicators, reverse lights etc… It is possible to add a pen or other extra parts to the kit to increase the range of tasks for which it can be used.

The included Kitronik :MOVE servo:lite board can also be used in conjunction with a BBC micro:bit to build other movement based projects. We’ve produced a wide range of tutorials and guides that can be found in the resources section below. We have guides detailing; how to control a third servo, how to code the buggy to draw shapes, how to write code for the on-board ZIP LEDs, how to code the buggy for Bluetooth control and how to use a second microbit as a controller. Attach an Line Following Sensor, sense a track and move around

Kitronik has produced a number of add-ons for :MOVE mini, each with their own guides and code downloads.

  1. Bulldozer Add-On for the :MOVE mini.
  2. Tipper Truck Add-On for the :MOVE mini.
  3. Bumper Add-On for the :MOVE mini.

Note:

  1. This kit requires mechanical assembly.
  2. If using this kit in conjunction with an add-on them some soldering maybe required.

Features:

  1. The kit offers a fun introduction to the world of DIY robotics.
  2. Add code for autonomous operation.
  3. Use in conjunction with an App and control it over Bluetooth.
  4. Use the radio function and a second microbit as a controller.
  5. Attach a pen and code the robot to draw shapes.
  6. Attach an Line Following Sensor, sense a track and move around
