Texas Instruments Robotics Kit

Texas Instruments’ TI-RSLK MAX is a low-cost robotics kit that provides students and engineers a hands-on learning experience for embedded development. The TI-RSLK MAX is based on a TI SimpleLink MSP432P401R LaunchPad Development Kit, with the MCU featuring a 48MHz Arm Cortex-M4F that offers high performance with low power consumption. 

The kit includes a chassis board that provides power management, motor drivers, and sensor interface connectors, as well as bump sensor boards, a line sensor array, and the mechanical components needed to build the robot. The entire kit is solderless and allows for quick assembly and experimentation. 

The kit also includes comprehensive curriculum modules to teach how to design electronic systems.
