Cruise is an extension board specially designed for micro:bit. The combination of Cruise and micro:bit will provide you with a full-featured robot platform.Cruise board dual motor driver, infrared obstacle avoidance sensor, infrared line finding sensor, buzzer and programmable RGB LED, in addition to the ultrasonic interface, can meet your requirements to the greatest extent.Cruise is a DIY kit, through simple assembly can be used, and after the assembly of the finished product is very small, only the size of the palm of a child, convenient for you to take anywhere!So write a program, flip a switch, and get your micro:bit moving!

It integrates multiple sensors and electronic modules, including infrared obstacle avoidance, line following, sound, buzzer, full color LED and other modules. The kit uses colorful instructions to perfectly represent the robot's assembly process. It help you to write your own program, or download the sample program to help you learn more about micro:bit programming.


Easy to build, enable children to understand how robots work

■Easy to assembly, multiple function

■Simple instruction, small & agile, intergrated multiple sensors, electronic modules. Comprehensive functions.

■Open source hardware, unlimited creativity

■Based on the mico:bit open source hardware platform, which is widely used in innovation and provide a link between reality & virtual.

■Rich of resource, official BBC micro:bit board

Intelligently control Cruise with preset modes

Cruise micro:bit has three preset modes: obstacles avoiding, line-following and manual control. By switching between modes, children can command the robots to automatically avoid obstacles or move along the lines. In the manual mode, children can use the remote controller or companion software to manipulate Cruise to do things as they like.

■IR evading obstacle sensors, adopt the infrared ray technology. 

■IR line-tracking obstacle sensors realize intelligent walking.

■Ultrasonic sensors  control tension and measure distance .

■RGB LED  adjust color temperature, brightness and expand  colorful visual effects.


Hardware & software mixed bring coding in physical world

■By programming with Cruise micro:bit , chidlren can make their programs for the Cruise visible in the physical world. The real effects of sound, light and electricity in the physical world give children a stronger sense of accomplishment and will greatly inspire their enthusiasm in programming.

■At the same time, the interaction between Cruise micro:bit as a platform and Cruise micro:bit combine the virtual sprites with real objects. In this way, children will be exposed to more fun like designing games of their own, which will bring variety into the classroom.


Multiple compatible sensors enable different functions

RGB LED to adjust the color temperature, brightness, color, and expand the colorful visual effects.
Buzzer module  to prompt or alarm, such as press a button, start work, end work, or malfunction.
 IR line-tracking obstacle sensors use the infrared photoelectric  sensors to realize intelligent walking.
IR evading obstacle sensors, adopt the infrared ray technology, accomplish the induction to obstruction mainly. 
Ultrasonic sensors can be used to detect objects, control tension and measure distance.
