TPBot is a smart coding car robot designed for the micro:bit. What sets it apart from other robot cars on the market is its preset functions that don't require a micro:bit. Without a micro:bit the TPBot Smart Car has a line following function as well as obstacle avoidance. Once a micro:bit has been inserted it becomes a fully programmable smart car offering students a great vessel to learn coding.
Think, Code, Create
By teaching students how to program, deal with obstacles and challenges and find coding solutions for them within the scope of functionalities it offers, TPBot Smart Car exposes your kids to the necessity of critically thinking about what is presented to them and of becoming problem-solvers. As the students play with TPBot they will be permanently changed and stimulated to think, code and create. After all, there’s no better way to grow than growing in a way that gets you used to finding advanced solutions to stimulating challenges.
Rich Extension Interface
TPBot comes equipped with a four-way sensor connection at the rear and a four-way servo connection allowing you to connect Planet X Series Sensors in which not only its chips are connected, but it also knows where it’s going and where it stands—so it won’t just mindlessly bump against obstacles. Use more external sensors (such as gesture recognition, or AI cameras) to achieve all kinds of functions you want
Using the 4-direction Joystick bit with its 4 undefined buttons and micro:bit motherboard you are able to create and program a working remote control to use with the TPBot.
Building Block Extension
This microbit robot is compatible with building blocks such as lego bricks allowing kids to build and test different structures. At the same time, this smart car is also expandable through electronic modules that allow your kids to build on the expandable smart functionalities that they are free to explore and add to the car.
