The Arduino Engineering Kit is the ideal solution for students and offers state-of-the-art, practical integration of Arduino technology into the educational environment.
The kit is primarily intended for three types of users:
- Engineering students, at a university or vocational school, eg mechanical engineering, controls, mechatronics;
- Professors in engineering who also need hands-on projects to demonstrate engineering concepts;
- Maker with interest or background in technology, either professionally or as a hobby.
The Arduino Engineering Kit includes three state-of-the-art Arduino-based projects in which students can learn basic engineering concepts, mechatronic focuses, and MATLAB and Simulink programming. These projects will challenge them intellectually and help them develop engineering skills - and they're just plain fun!
Three exciting projects
1. Self-balancing motorcycle
This motorcycle will maneuver independently on various terrains and stand upright with a flywheel. It is very exciting to build and see in action!
2. Mobile rover
This vehicle can navigate between predetermined reference points, move objects with a forklift and much more. It is a lot of fun to make and use.
3. Whiteboard drawing robot
This amazing robot can duplicate a drawing given to it on a blackboard. It is really very impressive!
The kit is sold in a stackable hard plastic toolbox for storage and years of reuse. Inside the box is an easy-to-use Arduino MKR1000 board, several individually customized parts and a complete set of electrical and mechanical components that are required for the assembly of all three projects. Below is a detailed list of the components included in the kit.
In addition to the state-of-the-art, high-quality open source hardware, the student has access to a special e-learning platform and other learning materials after registering online. In addition, you receive a one-year single license for MATLAB and Simulink. This gives you practical experience in system modeling and “embedded algorithm” development.
