This is an amazing introduction to the world of robotics for students in middle school or above. The kit contains 310 parts, a ROBOTICS TXT Controller and extended ROBO Pro software for control of mobile and stationary robot models. Features include a USB camera which allows images to be transferred via USB or WiFi, color recognition, line tracking, and motion recognition. The new ROBOTICS TXT controller includes a 2.4 inch color touch display, a combined WLAN/Bluetooth module, a Micro SD card slot for additional memory space, IR receiver diode, integrated loudspeaker, four motor outputs, eight digital/analog inputs for sensors and four high-speed numerical inputs. With the ROBO Pro software, you can even program your own apps to control your models with your smartphone or Android tablet. Instructional activity information is available for free download on the fischertechnik eLearning portal (fischertechnik-elearning.com
) to support the student's learning process. NOTE: Models require the Accu Set (sold separately)
. The kit comes packed in a sturdy plastic storage box. We recommend one set for every two students. For ages 10+.
Additional sensors and actuators such as encoder motors, XS motor, push buttons, NTC resistors, phototransistors and LED's allow construction a of mobile detection robot, a soccer robot, temperature control and many other models! This set is compatible with other fischeretchnik robotics construction sets.
The TXT Controller has the following features: Dual processor ARM Cortex A8 (32bit / 600MHz) + Cortex M3, color 2.4 inch touch display, combined WLAN / Bluetooth module, Micro SD card slot for additional memory space, IR receiver diode, integrated loud speaker, 4 motor outputs, 8 digital / analog inputs for sensors and 4 high speed numerical inputs. Completed program modules are also provided for beginners.
Main subjects explored include:
Instrumentation and control / programming / interaction between hardware and software / use of actuators and sensors
ROBO Pro software is designed for Windows 7,8, and 10. Not currently Mac or Chromebook compatible.
