Description

Formula AllCode is a complete course in robotics with an impressive specification set. The robot itself is Bluetooth enabled and can be controlled on platforms including Android, Apple devices and the Raspberry Pi. The free, accompanying course includes a range of activities with varying levels of difficulty; from simple line following to maze solving. The system runs on a 16-bit dsPIC microcontroller and is programmable from just about anything including Flowcode, MATLAB, LabVIEW, Python, App Inventor, Visual Basic/C#/C and more.
