Balance-Bot is a remote controlled self-balancing Arduino robot created with 3D printed parts. With only two wheels, BALANCE-BOT is able to maintain balance all the time by using its internal sensors and driving its motors. You can control your BALANCE-BOT, making him move or spin, by sending commands via Smartphone, Tablet or PC.
Each pack includes:
Arduino Leonardo + shield + gyro + accelerometer - already programmed
2 x Stepper motors
Battery holder, strap & on/off switch
Base STL file (students build their design upon the base STL file)
No soldering required
Example concept STL file (to 3D print and assemble an example project)
Example STEM class lessons include:
Electric motors (how they work etc).
Gears (different types of gears and the relationship between them).
Pulleys and belts (applications where they are used)
Mathematics (velocity and relative velocity, distance/time etc).
Physics (basic principles such as conservation of energy, forces etc).
