Overview

This kit equips the ActivityBot Robot to make consistent maneuvers, when paired with the ActivityBot Wheels and Tires.  The encoder sensors mount next to the wheels, emitting infrared light and detecting reflections as the spokes pass by. 

Key Features:

  • Modulated infrared sensors reduce interference from ambient light
  • Socketed encoder cables connect to the robot's breadboard or the servo headers
  • Mounting hardware and resistors included
 
Application Ideas:
  • Dead-reckoning exercises
  • Solving mazes
  • Mapping paths of travel

Note: Each ActivityBot Robot Kit already includes the ActivityBot Encoder Kit. This kit is offered for replacement parts, or for your custom uses.
