TI Robotics System Learning Kit gets up to speed with robotics

This is a low-cost robotics kit that comes with its own curriculum for students to follow.

Basically, the system is designed to be used within a university environment, aiming to teach students the engineering concepts behind designing, testing and building a functioning robotic system.

There are two options: Basic ($99) and Advanced ($199)

TI-RSLK Basic Kit ($99) :

  • SimpleLink MSP432P401R MCU LaunchPad development kit
  • Motor drive and power distribution board
  • Robot chassis, motors, Line IR sensors
  • 50+ other mechanical and electronic components

TI-RSLK Advanced Kit ($199) – Contains all components found in basic kit, adding wireless communication to enable robot to solves its way through a maze by detecting lines and obstacles. Additional components include:

  • SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC2650 module BoosterPack plug-in module
  • SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3120 wireless network processor BoosterPack plug-in module
  • Distance IR sensors
  • Tachometer
