    Introducing the TI-Robotics System Learning Kit
    Engineers learn by building and competing.

    The TI-RSLK is a low-cost robotics kit and coursework curriculum, which provide engineers with a deeper understanding of how electronic system designs work. Designed to supplement university faculty curriculum, the TI-RSLK Maze Edition comes with 20 learning modules covering basic to advanced topics.

    Learn more about the curriculum at www.ti.com/rslkclassic.

     

    The TI-RSLK Maze Edition kit comes in three options for purchase:

     

    The TI-RSLK Upgrade kit can be added to the basic kit to create the advanced kit

     

    The TI-RSLK kits are comprised of parts from various vendors. Replacement parts can be purchased through element14, save for Pololu parts, which can be sourced directly through Pololu at www.pololu.com

    Overview

    The TI-RSLK is a low-cost robotics kit and coursework curriculum, which provide engineers with a deeper understanding of how electronic system designs work. Designed to supplement university faculty curriculum, the TI-RSLK Maze Edition comes with 20 learning modules covering basic to advanced topics. Each module is complete with lecture videos and slides, lab documentation and demonstration videos, quizzes and classroom activities and resources to support the learning experience. The kit and curriculum is fully customizable, allowing faculty to choose how they integrate the TI-RSLK into their class. The ultimate goal of the TI-RSLK kit is to design, build and test a robot system capable of solving complex tasks, finding objects, following a line, exploring a maze, racing autonomously etc. The knowledge aggregated through hands on labs will help students and engineers apply this learning to solve challenges and compete with their classmates.


    The TI-RSLK Maze Edition kit comes in three options for purchase:

    • The TI-RSLK Basic kit teaches the foundations of an electronic system, which includes the SimpleLink™ MSP432P401R MCU LaunchPad™ Development Kit.
    • The TI-RSLK Advanced kit builds on the concepts and components found in the basic kit, adding wireless communication concepts with the SimpleLink Bluetooth® low energy CC2650 module BoosterPack™ plug-in module and SimpleLink Wi-Fi® CC3120 wireless network processor BoosterPack plug-in module that enable the robot to be competition-ready against other TI-RSLK robots.
    • The TI-RSLK Upgrade kit can be added to the basic kit to create the advanced kit.
