Robo:Bit Mk2 Buggy for BBC Micro:Bit (RoboBit for Microbit)

Robo:Bit Mk2 DIY Buggy for the BBC Micro:Bit

NB. BBC Micro:Bit is NOT included unless specifically selected with the checkbox

This little buggy can be assembled very quickly using only a screwdriver. No soldering is required

Improvements over Mk1:
  • Stronger motor sub-chassis with no structural solder joints
  • Wire-free battery pack
  • Easier to attach battery holder
  • Current limit on motors to prevent stall current resetting the Micro:Bit
  • Solid bolt-on ultrasonic attachment

It comprises several packs that are also available separately:
  • Robo:Bit Mk2 robotics controller PCB
  • Fixings pack (battery holder, screws, mounting pillars, caster, etc.)
  • Wheels Motors and wheels
  • Optional extra: Line sensor pack
  • Optional extra: Ultrasonic distance sensor module
  • Optional extra: McRoboFace - simply push the 4-pin connector of the McRoboFace into the 4 holes at the front of the Robo:Bit
Using the basic kit you can learn about:
  • Controlling motors with simple Forwards / Reverse controls
  • Controlling the speed of motors in both directions using PWM
  • Use a second BBC micro:bit with the easy-to-use radio software to control the buggy
  • Use the motion sensor on the micro:bit to detect collision with obstacles and avoid them
With the Plug-in Ultrasonic Distance Sensor:
  • Detect when obstacles get close and change the program to avoid the obstacles
  • "Follow-Me" program that tries to stay a certain distance from the object in front
With the Line Follower Sensor Pack:
  • Use the 2 line sensors either side of the non-reflective line to detect the line and keep the buggy on track
  • Write more complex programs that behave as required if you meet a T-Junction or crossing of lines
  • Compare different line following strategies - create a race-track and see which strategy is fastest
  • In combination with the distance sensor, make it avoid obstacles on the track and then re-acquire the line
