BitCar is a micro:bit based do-it-yourself robot designed for STEM education. It’s easy to assemble, easy to code and fun to play with. The car uses two high-quality metal gear motors to drive the wheels, which have stronger force and longer lifespan than normal plastic gear motors. The BitCar board integrates a buzzer for music or audio signals, 2 line follow sensors for tracking lines, and the 4 addressable LEDs on the bottom can be used as indicators, highlights or simply for cool decorations. There are also Grove connectors for add-ons like ultrasonic sensor, AI camera, recognizer or screens. All features of BitCar can be easily controlled with Microsoft MakeCode editor.
The BitCar is powered by two DC motors. The speed of these motor can be controlled by simply altering the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal. See the documents section at the bottom of this page for more information.
Note: The BBC micro:bit is sold separately and the kit requires simple assembly, buy the microbit here.
