Arduino Boards and Kits
Arduino boards are among the most popular microcontroller boards in use by DIY robotics hobbyists around the world. These compact boards are highly versatile, inexpensive, and easy to use. Programmable using a standard USB cable and free, open source software, they are the perfect choice for new and experienced robot builders and project makers alike.
Our range of Arduino boards, kits and modules can be used to build many types of robot and other electronic gadgets. The range of sensors, shields, displays and other modules allows you to build robots that can move around along the ground, through the air, or on water with ease, all while collecting data and information about the world as they go to help them decide upon new actions. Your Arduino robot can be fitted with sensors that help it to 'see', 'hear' and 'feel', as well as communicate with other devices, people, and the environment.
The open source nature of Arduino boards means that anyone may copy the design and manufacture them under their own brand, which is why they are so inexpensive and have gained such a rampant following the world over. The global community of 'makers', DIY robotics hobbyists and electronic gurus who share their ideas, designs and Arduino programs or 'sketches' provides a great source of information and encouragement to new and experienced robot builders.
With a plethora of YouTube videos about Arduino based projects you will always have plenty of ideas for your next build. If you are new to the exciting world of robotics then Arduino boards should be top of your list.
