The build it yourself Microduino Self-Balancing Robot is a two-wheeled self-balancing mobile robot. The robot will attempt to self-balance itself upright during controlled movements or from external forces. It is controllable over Bluetooth from mobile devices (Android or iOS) using the Microduino mRobots app. The Microduino Series is our original product, created for those looking for the most flexibility in their DIY projects. Although not required, Microduino modules can be soldered for those that enjoy the option. The quarter-sized profile makes it easier to integrate into projects of all shapes and sizes. Smart, flexible, and compatible with the Arduino ecosystem, designers have everything they need to build their own applications. A Self-Balancing Mobile Robot The Microduino Self-Balancing Robot is a two-wheeled self-balancing mobile robot kit. The kit is designed to be fun and easy to assemble. Meanwhile, learning about the different modules and their functions to create the robot. Self-Balancing The robot utilizes a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope chip (MPU-6050) to determine if it is tilting over. Two stepper motors then activate appropriately to compensate for this falling motion to maintain the robot’s upright self-balancing position. Wireless Control The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chip (included) adds wireless communication to the Microduino Self-Balancing Robot. The robot can be remotely controlled by mobile devices running Android or iOS using the Microduino mRobots app. Control from the app allows for forward, reverse and left / right steering all the while the robot continuously self-balances itself. Microduino Series Modules This kit incorporates various Microduino Series modules. The Microduino Series is a set of modules which are Arduino compatible, have a small form factor, stack-able, modular, and reusable. The modules were designed for hobbyists and tinkers to quickly create and prototype projects.
