Inex POP-BOT Standard - Arduino Mobile Robot Platform

Availability: Out of stock



Quick overview

Inex POP-BOT Standard Edition - Arduino Mobile Robot Platform

Inex POP-BOT Standard Edition - Arduino Mobile Robot Platform

The POP-BOT is and Arduino compatible, mobile robotic platform. It comes complete with wheels, motors, sensors, software, documentation, etc. The POP-BOT MCU comes in two parts, the POP-168 Module and the RBX168 power module board.

  • For Enthusiasts, the kit goes beyond the traditional Arduino boards by offering a comprehensive set of parts that will let you build an Arduino Powered Autonomous Robot and further explore Arduino and the ATMEGA168 processor.
    The controller is preloaded with the Arduino bootloader that can be reused to load WinAVR /AVR Studio HEX files directly using a tool such as the ARP Uploader (addditional notes on this technique).
  • For Students and Teachers the set comes with a comprehensive set of Activities and Training Sessions for introducing Electronics, Sensors and Microcontrollers using the well-popular Arduino Platform. No soldering is required so the kit is perfectly safe for the Classroom.



Activity Videos


(only in POPbot Standard)
Additionally a number of other activities are documented to guide through learning other aspects of Robotics and Sensors.
Please see the activity list bellow as well as the User and Activities Manual.

Manuals, Activities and Training Resources

The Kit comes with thorough documentation and a number of Manuals and Training Sessions aimed at Beginners to Advanced Users.

  • A Full List of Activities can be found on the User and Activities Manual
    The manual introduces all the different parts, explains the assembly steps and finally explains the Algorithms and the Code to perform all the Activities:
    • Movement: forward and backward movement; square-shaped movement; circular movement

    • Simple Collision Detection with Touch Sensors

    • Serial LCD:  Introduction to Serial Communications; Display Simple Messages; Alternate messages and Blink

    • Line Tracking

    • - Test and calibrate White and Black Areas
      - Border Movement: Stay inside a delimited area and Ping-Pong Movement: bounce between two black lines
      - Move Along a Straight Black line and a Circular Black Line
      - Identifying Dead Ends and Returning to take different paths
      - Multi-Line Crossing Mission: Maze solving
    • Edge Detection using the IR Reflection Sensors.

    This Standard Edition includes Additional, Advanced Activities, not available on the POPBot Lite Edition:

    • Touchless Obstacle Avoidance Using the Sharp IR Distance Sensor
    • Object Seeking Using the Sharp IR Distance Sensor
    • Using and controlling a Servo Motor
  • The Training Sessions for the Popular Bionic Arduino Series are included in the CD.
  • PDF manuals introducing Arduino and the Processing Language, Full Technical Schematics for all the Boards are also on the CD.

Suggested Accessories for Advanced Applications:

  • Add a VRbot Voice Recognition Module and have the robot Recognize your Voice Commands.
  • Add a GPS Micro Mini for Precise Navigation.
  • Check our Full Product Portfolio for a comprehensive list of sensors and expansion parts.
  • If you're looking into programming the robot in WinAVR /AVR Studio you can flash HEX files through the bootloader using a tool such as the ARP Uploader (addditional notes on this technique).
    This tool takes advantage of the Arduino bootloader to gain access to the board and load any custom generated HEX file.
