Description

Have you wondered to learn programming or have your own programming robot? Nowadays, programming has developed to a lower age group, and it will be a trend for everyone thanks to the spread of simple graphical programming platforms, from micro:bit to Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

Maybe you haven't heard of them before. However, with the help of this product and tutorial, you can easily install a multi-functional programming 4WD Mecanum car and experience the fun of being a maker.

Raspberry pi pico is a highly integrated microcontroller with powerful functions and small size. It is very suitable to be applied in STEAM education for its functions to make robots, wearable devices and electronic interactive games via the combination of code programming and graphical programming.

This Keyestudio 4WD Mecanum Robot Car For Pico is a smart DIY car dedicated to Raspberry Pi Pico. The smart car consists of a car body with extended functions, a PCB base plate with integrated motor driver sensors, 4 decelerating DC motors, Mecanum wheels, RGB lights, various sensors as well as acrylic boards. Therefore, you can easily assemble a cool Mecanum wheel 4WD smart car by yourself.

We made two tutorials for the car, one is for C language using Arduino IDE and the other is for MicroPython using Thonny IDE, which will guide you to enjoy installation and programming. In this process, not only can you enhance your ability to make stuffs but also learn the skills of programming.

Python is one of the most popular programming languages especially in machine learning for its availability and accessibility have brought huge convenience. However, MicroPython is committed toreviving the Python programming language in microcontrollers and embedded systems, while C language empowers us to get to the lower-level code.

This is a C language tutorial for 4WD Mecanum Robot Car For Pic and the code in this tutorial is written in C/C++. Each project code is explained in detail, making it more accessible for you to understand them. In closing if you have any difficulties or questions with this tutorial and toolkit, you can consult us at any time. 

Features

This product integrates a host of functions such as seven-color lights, WS2812RGB LEDs, servo, ultrasonic, line tracking, IR control as well as Bluetooth control. Among them, the seven-color lights, RGB2812 LEDs, motor drivers, 3-channel line tracking sensor, IR receivers (in order to receive accurately, we will place one at the head and one at the tail) are all integrated into the base plate, making it more accessible for us to install.

What’s more, the 4 WS2812RGB LEDs enable to display different colors, and the 2 seven-color lights empower to make direction lights for the car. By the way, the motor speed of this product is adjustable.

This product uses two 18650 lithium batteries for power supply. When installing and disassembling the battery, please pay attention to the positive and negative poles of the battery, and be sure not to reverse them.
