The robot starters kit was especially designed to get beginners started in robotics. Hence, it is extremely suitable for class usage as well. By combining the Dwengo board and the sensor panel you can quickly build all kinds of robots: for example a line-following robot, a light-eating robot or a robot the finds it way in a maze. In this tutorial we explain how the different sensors of the sensor panel work by introducing three different robot examples. After this tutorial you will have build a simple line-follower, a light-eating robot and a wall-tracking robot.
Today we performed a major update of the Dwengo library. Apart from minor improvements to the existing library, we also extended the library with some additional functionality. The update helps to use our two recently launched products: the Dwengo Bluetooth module and the robot starters kit. We summarize the most important improvements.
Dwengo introduces an easy to use bluetooth breakout module. You can now control your projects from your computer or smart phone in no time! The module uses a TTL-level serial communication protocol, and has a standard connector which allows you to plug it directly onto your Dwengo breadboard.
A tutorial explaining how to connect and use the bluetooth module will follow soon.
There is more good news: the breakout module is yours for just 18 EUR, including VAT and shipping!
WELEK, the workshop electronics of the IEEE student branch Ghent (Ghent University), organises the 4th edition of the legendary robot competition. This years challenge is a sumo robot competition. Details and registration form can be found at the WELEK website . On 22 February WELEK invites you for the kick-off meeting where you will get all necessary information about the competition. Take up the challenge using your Dwengo board and beat all other robots at the grand final at the end of April!
