The Kitronik:MOVE Motor for the BBC micro:bit is a fun way to get started with buggy robotics. Learning to use all of the included features will provide the aspiring roboteer with a solid foundation in robotics.

This fully-featured robot allows you to explore movement, how to utilize light and sound, as well as obstacle detection and avoidance. The onboard sensors also allow you to code autonomy that can react to its surroundings. If you also use it in conjunction with the Micro:bits built-in radio module, the possibilities become endless.

Two bi-directional DC motors with variable speed control are on the chassis. You can simply push the wheels, which have rubber tyres, onto the motor shafts. Slot a BBC micro:bit into the edge connector to begin coding. There is no additional assembly and no soldering required.

The device features 4 built in AA battery holders. This provides a regulated voltage supply for powering the BBC micro:bit. When the buggy is not in use, there is also a power switch to save batteries.

The micro:bit slots into the onboard edge connector. Code the micro:bit, plug it into the buggy, switch the power on, and then play.


:MOVE Motor can be coded using the Microsoft MakeCode editor. Kitronik has produced a set of custom MakeCode blocks to simplify coding the completed buggy. The booklet that comes with the buggy contains more detailed instructions on using the blocks and writing code. If you are feeling more adventurous or relish a challenge, :MOVE Motor can also be coded with Python.

You will also find some quick tutorials in the booklet (included). There are also additional online tutorials and step-by-step guides for extra projects.

No soldering and minimal assembly required.
