mBot Ranger is a three-in-one STEM educational robot kit that supports three building forms.

Description

mBot Ranger robot takes coding and robotics to new territories with three preset building forms—Off-Road Land Raider, Dashing Raptor, and Self-Balancing Nervous Bird—that students can use for their own designs. Using the included sensors, students can also program their robots to perform advanced functions, including obstacle avoidance, line following, balancing, and more. mBot Ranger requires more construction and programming skills than mBot, but it offers a wider range of possibilities for student-generated projects.

Each mBot Ranger features the following:

  • Equipped with a Me Auriga mainboard
  • Built-in temperature sensor, gyroscope, light level sensor, and sound level sensor
  • Connects to peripheral Ultrasonic Sensor, Line-Follower Sensor
  • Compatible with and Makeblock® platforms and LEGO® blocks
mBot Ranger: Off-Road Land Raider form

Off-Road Land Raider

When constructed as Off-Road Land Raider, an off-road robot tank, mBot Ranger tackles a wide variety of terrain.

mBot Ranger: Dashing Raptor form

Dashing Raptor

When constructed as Dashing Raptor, a three-wheel racing car, mBot Ranger runs and spins like a raptor that is eager to catch its prey.

mBot Ranger: Self-balancing Nervous Bird form

Self-Balancing Nervous Bird

When built as Nervous Bird, a smart self-balancing car, mBot Ranger remains level when driving straight or standing still and leans at an angle when making turns.

mBlock Software

mBlock programming software enables beginners to simply drag and drop command blocks to program mBot without a need for coding experience. mBlock also allows students to write programs for mBot, Arduino® boards, and other hardware.
