The Round Rover is one of our introductory robots to the new line of educational robotic rover kits.  This rover is 6 inches round.  This kit comes unassembled.  The purpose of this robot kit is to teach the student about microcontroller programming, reading a schematic, interfacing the parts of the kit, completing tasks.  The primary lessons of this kit are:

LCD Display:
Interacts between the controller to a user by LCD display.  This robot kit can operate automatically by loading the controller with the appropriate code. The LCD allows us to quickly show information while not connected to the PC. 
Random Dance:
Programmable speed and direction. This kit is driven by two wheels and two gliding roller bearings.
Uses a servo to engage a pen.  The pen will mark the robot's route on paper or poster board.  This function allows the robot to produce graphics similar to a spirograph.
Ultrasonic Obstacle Avoidance:
Can avoid obstacles by using motor speed/direction controls and an ultrasonic module. The robot measures distance using the ultrasonic signals while moving forward. If an obstacle is detected in range, the robot can adjust the direction and move away.
Infrared Tracking of a Line:
Using five infrared tracking modules, the programming can identify the black line when the robot is moving on a white surface.  The robot can follow a path.
WIFI Communications:
Wifi Communications ESP8266 - Robot can be controlled by APP on the Android Phone or iPhone
