Teachers and educators may be interested in a new official Arduino Engineering Kit launched this week and created to enable students and teachers to incorporate core engineering concepts such as control systems, inertial sensing, signal/imaging processing, and robotics with the support of MATLAB and Simulink programming. Check out the video below to learn more about the new Arduino Engineering Kit which is being created by the official Arduino development team.
The Arduino Engineering Kit is now available to purchase directly from the official Arduino online store and contains everything you need to build three “cutting-edge”, Arduino-based projects with each one designed to teach students how to build modern electronic devices.
– Self-Balancing Motorcycle – This motorcycle will maneuver on its own on various terrains and remain upright using a flywheel for balance. It’s very exciting to build and to see in action.
– Mobile Rover – This vehicle can navigate between given reference points, move objects with a forklift that’s controlled by computer vision, and much more. It’s very fun to make and use.
– Whiteboard Drawing Robot – This amazing robot can take a drawing it’s given and duplicate it on a whiteboard. It’s most impressive.
“In addition to the hardware, after registering online, students and educators will have access to a dedicated e-learning platform and other learning materials. The kit also includes a one-year individual license for MATLAB and Simulink, providing the user with hands-on experience in system modeling and embedded algorithm development.”
To purchase your very own Arduino Engineering Kit jump over to the official Arduino website where the kits are currently available to preorder at a reduced price of €199 offering a considerable saving of the recommended retail price of €249 which will take effect once the kit is officially launched.
