Grove Zero Car Kit makes it easy for you to assemble a color line following car. The car is constructed with only 4 modules through snap-together magnetic connections; the color line follower, chassis, mainboard, and battery. The kit also comes with interesting game maps for kids who are aged 6 or older to develop their skills and knowledge in maths, problem solving and programming.
Default programs are uploaded in the modules (for more info, visit: https://www.tinkergen.com/GroveZero). When your tracking car is assembled and is ready, the default programs will kick in. You can draw a track on a piece of paper with a black marker pen. Then, put the car on the track and it will drive along the track immediately. After calibrating the line follower, it can even drive along lines of other colors. Three paper maps are included in the kit. You can use both the maps and the User Guide to find the magic of the car. Then, you can go to Codecraft to write programs to implement the various possibilities of your car.
We recommend that you buy a Starter Kit which extends the possibilities in which the car interact with the external world through other sensors or modules so you could implement a remote control car, a sound-activated car and a light-sensing car.
What is Grove ZeroGrove Zero is a product series of programmable electronic building blocks that combine easy magnetic connections with graphical programming software to implement functional designs. Grove Zero is a great tool both for developing a child’s creativity and for teaching STEM concepts.
Snap & Play
This kit is suitable for:
elementary and high school students / DIY hobbyists / learning centers / maker teachers / graphical programming beginners
Color Line Following (Default Functionality)
Black: tracking (default) / Green: turn right / Blue: turn left/ Red: stop
Multiple Color Recognition
After you calibrate the color line follower, the car can react differently to the colors. Perhaps it can act like a bull when it sees red, going backward for one second, and forward for two seconds.
Add a 4 digit display module to the car, and it'll do your math class for you. You can use it to play all kinds of maths games on the map.
Add a buzzer to the car. When the car recognizes a new color, it will play a different pitched note.
Replace the color line follower with a sound sensor. Your car will become a sound-activated car. The louder the sound, the faster the car drives.
Replace the color line follower with an ultrasonic sensor. Your car will know how to avoid all those barriers on the way.
Remote Control Car
Take apart the color line follower. Add the twin-button, mainboard and battery modules. Your car becomes a remote control car!
