Internal Reference: The GoGoBot Educational robot

The GoGoBot Educational Robot with Arduino Uno for Hobbyists, Kids, Students, and Schools.

The GoGoBot is developed by Bot Shop and is now a beast in a small package. The robot itself comes with more than 16 features that perfectly demonstrate all major robotics principles in an easy yet powerful way. The real fun and education continue when starting to combine all these features to create real robotics applications.

NOTE:  Suitable for ages 8 to 80+

Watch this short clip to learn more about our GoGoBot!

The GoGoBot has been tested and improved!

We can not take all the credit as we had lots of input from many schools and companies. Gear Up, a specialist company and multiple winner in robotics challenge competitions, education and courseware was hugely involved in the development of what the GoGoBot has become. Gear Up has continuously tested and helped improve the GoGoBot educational robot in real training environments. The list of improvements that came from them was invaluable and we implemented each one of them.

You can now have a robot that is tried and tested many times and has more features and services than anything else you will find in the market at this price. Robots with much fewer functions cost twice as much.

The robot itself might be the highlight but all the education & support structures and software are what give the GoGoBot its power.

What will you learn with the GoGoBot? 

Arduino Uno R3

Adding an Arduino Uno to our Gogobot makes it a more powerful learning tool. The Arduino Uno is a small, programmable circuit board that lets you control and interact with sensors, motors, and lights. By fitting it onto the Gogobot like a hat, you can easily customize and enhance the robot's capabilities. This makes learning about electronics and coding more hands-on and fun, helping students grasp complex concepts more easily.

0.96 inch Oled Screen

Adding a 0.96-inch OLED screen to our Gogobot makes it a more interactive and user-friendly learning tool. This tiny, high-contrast screen displays real-time information like sensor data and battery levels, making it easier to monitor the robot. It can also show tutorials and code outcomes, helping students understand their programming better. The screen is energy-efficient and fits neatly on the robot, enhancing both its functionality and design.

Infra Red Remote

Adding an IR remote to our Gogobot makes controlling the robot easier and more fun, especially for users who don't want to or can't use the app. An IR remote allows users to send commands to the robot wirelessly, enabling them to interact with it from a distance. This addition simplifies tasks like starting and stopping the robot, changing modes, or executing specific functions without needing to connect physically. It enhances the learning experience by making it more interactive and giving students a practical understanding of remote control technology.

Motors with Built in Encoders

Equipping our Gogobot with motors that have built-in encoders enhances its precision and functionality for educational purposes. Motors with built-in encoders provide accurate feedback on the motor shaft's position and speed, which is crucial for tasks like navigation, distance measurement, and precise movement control. This feature allows the robot to autonomously adjust its movements, follow predefined paths, or respond dynamically to its environment. It also provides students with a hands-on understanding of feedback control systems and robotics principles, making learning more interactive and practical.

Ultrasonic Sensor

Adding an ultrasonic sensor to our Gogobot gives it a better sense of its surroundings, like how bats use sound to navigate. This sensor lets the robot detect objects in front of it by bouncing sound waves off them, which is really useful for tasks like avoiding obstacles or measuring distances. It's like giving the robot eyes and ears that help it understand and interact with the world more intelligently. This upgrade makes learning about sensors and robotics hands-on and exciting, allowing students to explore how technology can perceive and respond to its environment.
