Our newly upgraded 4WD MiniQ mobile platform is especially designed for education/learning purposes. It comes fully assembled and all your need is a PC with Arduino IDE and 4xAA battery. This alternative version of MiniQ 4WD robot provides higher ground clearance (25mm instead of 9mm), bigger approach angle and improved off-road capability in complex terrains. The mobile robot comes with Arduino Leonardo controller (ATmega32u4) and also integrates modules such as RGB LED, photosensitive diode, infrared trasmitters, infrared receivers, light sensors, additional buttons and buzzer.
Along with this upgraded MiniQ 4WD kit, we offer 8 lessons for beginners, from entry-level to line-following, obstacle avoidance, and remote control. Users can easily grasp through the tutorial. All codings and tutorials are open and free to download.
