Get started in robotics with this upcoming class!

Favorited Favorite 0

The SparkFun RedBot is our entry-level robotics kit designed to teach the basics of two motor robotics and sensor integration. It’s a great kit for someone who is looking to get started with robotics! Today we would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming RedBot Class taking place on March 15, 2014.

This class, which takes place at SparkFun HQ from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., will use the RedBot to explore the basics: movement, object detection, line following amongst other topics . We’ll use Arduino and the RedBot Code Library to program your robot to drive, spin, detect and avoid objects, and more!

Places in this class do tend to fill up, so sign up today to reserve a spot. If you can’t join us for the class, we’ll be live streaming it here. Hope to see you there!

  • I am in New Zealand and would like to follow the streamed class, however it starts in the middle of the night, our time, will the stream be available for later viewing as well? Many thanks

  • According to the RedBot product page, there are none in stock, you have no plans to build any, and it’s not available for back order. Sounds like it’s going to be a DULL class!

    • @scharkalvin – the class already has all of the materials for the class being taught on the 15th. the kit that was linked to in the post is currently going through a small revision with the new version expected to be available the middle of next week. if you are interested in grabbing the kit in advance of this class, stay tuned for the new version of the kit to hit the store next week!

      • Any plans to revise the Magician chassis or make your own improved version ? The bottom deck is practically useless because the standoffs aren’t high enough to provide any sort of reasonable access for ongoing maintenance/tweaking. Another good revision would be to mount the DC gearmotors on top of the bottom deck to give the bot better ground clearance. For that matter, wheels of a larger diameter would be nice for the same reason. It’s sad when bots have trouble transitioning over a threshold between, say, tile and carpet because they’re too close to the ground.
