We Upgrade Our Arduino Robot to New Wireless Car Kit as AI Toy for Kids for STEM Learning Projects, Inspired by Arducam IoTaiPosted: September 03, 2019Categories: My Blogs
The Arduino platform was perhaps the most popular for building a robot
The market has seen a whole bunch of robots based on Arduino, especially Arduino car kits. Over the past few years, UCTRONICS has also released our Arduino smart robot car product line. This leads to the first question we are having here: Why do we use Arduino as the platform for a Robot?
The answer is simple: Arduino is a popular and low-cost platform with excellent code and software support from the open-source community. The Arduino boards, such as the UNO R3, has already been used in a lot of maker projects that could be

Standalone IoT modules
When it comes to development modules for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, there is perhaps nothing more exciting than ESP8266 and its successor ESP32 by Espressif. These cheap yet powerful SoC (system-on-chip) have been used in a lot of IoT systems and also received a great amount of popularity among Electronic Engineers and enthusiasts.
The newer revision - ESP32 - supports both WIFI & Bluetooth wireless connection for a cable-free transmission, which allows itself to be better connected to the Internet for running internet-based and internet-driven services, as well as other embedded and IoT systems that require close and better machine to machine interaction to automate the workflow.
However, the ESP32 SoC is not easily integrated to other circuit boards and devices,
