This kit includes enough parts for many different interesting robot projects. The kit includes a Rover 5 with optical encoder on each track, which allows dead-reckoning experiments. It also comes with a complete line follower kit with three floor mounted IR line following sensors, and three upper mounted obstacle IR avoidance detectors. The kit includes the L298 Dual H-bridge Motor Driver, an Arduino "compatible" Duemilanove and a Sensor shield board which mounts to the controller board, and allows easy connection to the controller port pins. Also inlcuded in the kit is a plastic mounting plate, and a sensor mounting bracket which includes brass mounting standoffs and misc screws and hardware. All that you'll need is a bit of patience and a good rechargeable battery pack. A 9.6V or 12VDC NiMH battery pack is ideal. See the video below!
