Arduino and MathWorks team up to offer students new Arduino Engineering Kit

Arduino announced its partnership with MathWorks, to reinforce the importance of Arduino at the university level in the fields of engineering, Internet of Things, and robotics. The Arduino Engineering Kit is the first product released as a result of the partnership and will be available for purchase starting today on the Arduino online store. The Arduino Engineering Kit consists of three cutting-edge, Arduino-based projects that teach students how to build modern electronic devices – challenging them intellectually and helping them develop physical engineering skills that will better prepare them to enter the commercial market following graduation.

Following the global success of the Arduino CTC 101 program, the program for upper secondary schools, the Arduino Engineering Kit enables college students and educators to incorporate core engineering concepts into their Arduino projects, thanks to industry-standard tools for algorithm development, system modeling, and simulation.

Inside the new kit is an easy-to-use Arduino MKR1000 board, several customized parts, and a complete set of electrical and mechanical components needed to assemble all three projects:

  • Self-Balancing Motorcycle: This motorcycle will maneuver on its own on various terrains and remain upright using a flywheel for balance.
  • Mobile Rover: This vehicle can navigate between given reference points, move objects with a forklift, and much more.
  • Whiteboard Drawing Robot: This amazing robot can take a drawing it's given and replicate it on a whiteboard.

In addition to the hardware included, after registering online, the student will have access to a dedicated e-learning platform and other learning materials. Additionally, they are granted a one-year individual license for MATLAB and Simulink, which provides them with hands-on experience in system modeling and embedded algorithm development.
