Interactive C Robot Kit

Posted by in Intermediate, Robot Kits

Ordering Information

Order Code: INTCROBOT
Manufacturer: Inex
Price: £159.00

Overview

The Interactive C robot kit is based on Inex’s AX-11 robot controller board, which is a modified version of the popular Handy Board by MIT. The AX-11 is a 68HC11-based controller that enables the user to build mobile robots for educational, hobbyist and industrial purposes. It incorporates 32KB of non-volatile RAM, six digital inputs, eight digital outputs, 21 analogue inputs, four DC motor drivers, six servo motor drivers and a 16×2 character LCD. The AX-11 board is a popular choice for robot design courses, projects and competitions in colleges and universities worldwide.

Features

  • Quick and easy to assemble – no soldering required.
  • Programmed using Interactive C – ideal for experienced users and for use in further and higher education.
  • Complete package includes everything required to conduct a number of different robot projects.
  • Experiments cover basic movement, collision detection, light detection, line tracing, contactless collision detection and distance measurement techniques.
  • Supplied with detailed and easy-to-follow documentation covering construction and C language programming of the robot.
  • Wide range of optional interface boards and sensors available.
