Obstacle Avoiding Car Robot – Getting Started

Learning to build a robot can be a lot of fun, there are many ways to get into it, but for a simple starter this little kit that we look at today is a great way to get started.

This robotics kit is simply a little car that uses two geared motors to drive and turn it. It uses an ultrasonic transducer in combination with a servo motor to determine when objects are there, then the Arduino computes how the robot car can avoid crashing into them.

In the short video link below, I unpackage one of these popular robotic car kits to show what components it comes with. Later on during the week we’ll look at how to assemble it as assembly instructions are hard to get hold of.

This robotics kit can come with just the base, wheels, motors and battery pack or it you pay a little more it comes complete with an Arduino Uno clone, ultrasonic sensor, SG90 servo and motor driver circuit.
