To get the next generation of engineers ready for their future careers, Arduino has created the Arduino Engineering Kit in partnership with MathWorks. This ultimate kit is designed to help college students build Arduino projects in the fields of engineering, Internet of Things, and robotics.
New Arduino engineering Kit to build modern electronic devices
The Arduino Engineering Kit consists of three Arduino-based projects so that students can easily learn fundamental engineering concepts, key aspects of mechatronics, and MATLAB and Simulink programming.
- Self-Balancing Motorcycle: This motorcycle will maneuver on its own on various terrains and remain upright using a flywheel for balance.
- Mobile Rover: This vehicle can navigate between given reference points, move objects with a forklift, and much more.
- Whiteboard Drawing Robot: This amazing robot can take a drawing it’s given and replicate it on a whiteboard.
The kit consists of an 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 hardware, after registering online, students and educators will have access to a dedicated e-learning platform and other learning materials. The kit also includes a one-year individual license for MATLAB and Simulink, providing the user with hands-on experience in system modeling and embedded algorithm development.
“We designed the Arduino Engineering Kit the way we would have liked to have learned mechatronics, control algorithms, state machines, and complex sensing when we were in our first years of engineering school: in a fun and challenging way,” said David Cuartielles, Arduino co-founder and Arduino Education CTO. “It’s all about hands-on activities built on top of well-grounded theoretical concepts. But more importantly, after finishing the basic materials, there’s plenty of flexibility to experiment, for the students to deviate and test their engineering creativity.”
The Arduino Engineering Kit is available for purchase starting today at the Arduino online store.
