The Arduino Robot is the first official Arduino on wheels. The robot has two processors, one on each of its two boards. The Motor Board controls the motors, and the Control Board reads sensors and decides how to operate. Each of the boards is a full Arduino board programmable using the Arduino IDE.

Both Motor and Control boards are microcontroller boards based on the ATmega32u4 (datasheet). The Robot has many of its pins mapped to on-board sensors and actuators.

Programming the robot is similar to the process with the Arduino Leonardo. Both processors have built-in USB communication, eliminating the need for a secondary processor. This allows the Robot to appear to a connected computer as a virtual (CDC) serial / COM port.

As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your own robots. The Arduino Robot is the result of the collective effort from an international team looking at how science can be made fun to learn. Arduino is now on wheels, come ride with us!

Arduino never makes anything bad

By Fareedh from New Delhi, India on May 10, 2016
Robot from arduino is too gud. Better than 3pi, I would say.

All in one

By Harsha Krishnan from Kerala, India on April 25, 2016
I have used this product.
with all those sensors , peripherals & the controller on board, with the ease of interface using arduino IDE.
This product worth the amount paid.

    • Q
    • What's the difference between the robot's motor board and control board?

      asked by Arnav Rajesh on June 06, 2016
    • A
    • Each board on the robot has a microcontroller, which is programmed independently of the other.

      It is recommended that you should only program the control board (the top board) until you are familiar with the robot's functionality.

      The motor board (the bottom board) has a stock firmware that fulfills most general purpose applications.

      The Motor Board controls the motors, and the Control Board reads sensors and decides how to operate.

    • Q
    • How do I upload a sketch?

      asked by Mahesh on June 13, 2016
    • A
    • You need to download the software and follow the step by step guide.

    • Q
    • How to recover a board blocked

      asked by Mahesh on June 13, 2016
    • A
    • If you have a board that can't load the sketch then try to follow the rescue guide.
