Small whizzing robots have been popular projects for years when it comes to the topic of Arduino at school or in education in general. With them, simple relationships between program functions and the resulting motion sequences can be recognized. With just a few more modules and sensors, the robots can be vividly automated. With an ultrasonic distance sensor, the small Düvelbot can detect obstacles and react to them by driving around them. Line-tracking sensors make it possible to have the robot travel on a line.
There are already many robots and chassis. What is different about the Düvelbot?
The Düvelbot is available as a complete learning set. You don't have to buy anything else to make the robot work. The components are deliberately chosen so that programming can be done visually with the original Arduino software, but also on a block basis. For example with OpenRoberta or S4A -Scratch for Arduino. In addition, these are very typical and inexpensive components. Thus, the robot can be used sustainably in the classroom, even if something breaks. All parts can be purchased cheaply or printed out yourself.
The Düvelbot with its components is
- Programmable by Arduino software or visually (e.g. OpenRoberta)
- Easy to assemble even for students with the Funduino instructions
- Easy to program with Funduino's instructions
Requirements for the students
- Solder cables to the motors (four solder joints)
- Read simple circuit diagrams
- Wire microcontroller, two motors, a battery, and a motor driver
- Fasten cables into screw terminals using a screwdriver
- Programming with Arduino or OpenRoberta
- Print out the housing with a 3D printer (if necessary with the help of the teachers)
Scope of delivery
- 1* Funduino UNO R3 or NANO R3 (Arduino compatible), depending on selection
- 2* N20 gear motor
- 1* L298 motor driver board
- 10* plug-in cables female/female
- 10* plug cable male/female
- 1* line tracking module
- 1* Ultrasonic sensor
- With or without 3D printed parts, depending on your choice
- Note: A battery case and a battery for external power supply are not included!
Genial für den Informatikunterricht!
Endlich mal ein günstiger Roboter, mit dem man blockbasiert Arduino programmieren kann und der die gleichen Funktionen hat, wie seine "großen"/teuren Brüder. Der gesamte Roboter ist so teuer, wie ein einzelner Lego-Farbsensor...
Nach kurzer Testphase haben wir direkt einen Klassensatz bestellt.
