    The Arduino Engineering Kit is a real treat for hobbyists and budding engineers as you get to build and program three projects: a self-balancing motorcycle, mobile rover, and whiteboard drawing robot.The kitcontains all the parts needed to build these three projects and includes a 1-year individual-user license of MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow and 10additional add-on products*. Learn engineering concepts including controls, image processing, and robotics with MATLAB, Simulink, and Arduino while programming these fun, interactive projects.

    Overview

    The kit provides engaging projects that help build foundational knowledge in engineering and can be used by the following three types of users:

    • Makers who want to incorporate more engineering into their Arduino projects.
    • Teachers / professors looking to incorporate projects into their engineering curriculum.
    • Students who want to gain hands-on experience with embedded algorithm development, controls and other engineering concepts.

    Features

    The three advanced projects include a Self Balancing Motorcycle, Mobile Rover and Whiteboard Drawing Robot.

    Self-Balancing Motorcycle
    This motorcycle maneuversitself on various terrain and remains upright using a flywheel for balance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5oflFbtW9c

    Mobile Rover
    This vehicle navigates between given reference points and moves objects with a forklift. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUGCIfsYLo4

    Whiteboard Drawing Robot
    This robot takes a reference drawing and duplicates it on a whiteboard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ypmTq3VmFM

    Ships With

    The kit includes an Arduino MKR1000, custom designed shields and all the other components necessary for assembling the projects. The kit also provides access to online learning materials that introduce Arduino, MATLAB, and Simulink and guide you through the process of programming each project, teaching engineering concepts along the way. The components of the kit come insidea handy tool box that is included for the safe storage and protection of your kit.

    License

    The Arduino Engineering Kit includes a 1-year individual user license of MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow, and ten additional add-on products* used in the projects. If you have an existing MATLAB license, you can use that as long as you have the required products and access to release 2018a or later. If your school has an active campus license it should meet these criteria.

    Add-on products: Control System Toolbox™, Curve Fitting Toolbox™, DSP System Toolbox™, Image Processing Toolbox™, Instrument Control Toolbox™, Optimization Toolbox™, Signal Processing Toolbox™, Simscape™, Simscape Multibody™, and Symbolic Math Toolbox™.

    The included license will not be sufficient for situations where a single kit will be shared among multiple students and/or a kit will be used for longer than 1 year.
