Arduino Engineering Kit

Engineering just got cool with the Arduino Engineering Kit! Bring the power of the Arduino MKR1000 to the classroom with MATLAB and Simulink. The Arduino Engineering Kit is the ideal solution for university students, providing a state-of-the-art, hands-on incorporation of Arduino technology in an educational setting. The kit is primarily for three types of users: Students learning about engineering, professors teaching engineering, and makers with an interest or background in engineering.

The Arduino Engineering Kit includes three cutting-edge Arduino-based projects so that students can learn fundamental engineering concepts, key aspects of mechatronics, and MATLAB and Simulink programming. These projects will challenge them intellectually and help them develop physical engineering skills — and they’re just fun to do.

The kit is sold in a hard plastic, stackable tool box for storage and years of reuse. Inside the box is an easy-to-use Arduino MKR1000 board, several customized parts, and a complete set of electrical and mechanical components needed to assemble all three projects.

In addition to the state-of-the-art, high-quality, open-source hardware provided, after registering online, the student will have access to a dedicated e-learning platform and other learning materials. Additionally, they are granted a one-year individual license for MATLAB and Simulink. This provides them with hands-on experience in system modeling and embedded algorithm development.

Adding More SERCOM Ports for SAMD Boards

February 4, 2019

How to setup extra SPI, UART, and I2C serial ports on a SAMD-based boards.

Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

3 Robotics

Skill Level: Competent - You may need an understanding of servo motors and how to drive them. Additionally, you may need some fundamental understanding of motor controllers.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.


Skill Level: Rookie - Basic hand tools are required and instructions will allow more freedom. You may need to make your own decisions on design. If sewing is required, it will be free-form.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

    Does this kit allow you to create all of the referenced projects? They look pretty amazing.

    • Member #1447350 / about 6 years ago / 1

      Yes, it has everything you need to create the three projects listed in the description, minus a few common hand tools that one should own anyway. Highly recommend pulling the trigger, if you are considering it.

Detailed Intro to Matlab and Simulink

This kit gives you a glimpse at what Matlab and Simulink can do to help you in your mechatronic design. The thorough tutorials walk you through step by step, with good explanations along the way. The value is pretty good considering that you get a year license for Matlab and Simulink along with several useful add on toolboxes. Completing the projects in this kit is comparable to completing the lab assignments in an introductory college mechatronics course. The hardware is very useful for future projects once you tire of the kit projects. I recommend it to all makers and do-it-yourselfers.

Best education kit I ever seen

Great methodology and great bidagogy
