5 items left

INTRODUCTION

The micro:Maqueen Plus is an advanced version of the original Maqueen robot, as it is more powerful and intelligent. This robot has been optimized with better power management and a larger capacity power supply.

In addition, micro:Maqueen Plus comes with a larger and more stable chassis, more built-in functions, and more expansion ports. It is not only suitable for classroom teaching but also can be used for after-school extended exercises and robot competitions.

(Note: micro:bit board is not included.)

What makes micro:Maqueen Plus so powerful?


High Capacity Lithium Battery

• Powered by18650 high capacity lithium battery. 

• Onboard charging circuit and battery indicator.

High Capacity Lithium Battery

Competition-level Sensors

• 6 line tracking sensors to allow complex routine programs and complicated maze algorithms. 

• Supports analog readings and sensor calibrations with only one key.

Competition-level Sensors

Rich Extension Interfaces

• 9 GPIO expansion ports, 3 I2C extension ports, 3 servo expansion ports.        

• 12 M3 threaded connections. 

• Fully compatible with micro: Maqueen Mechanic and HuskyLens AI vision sensor.

Rich Extension Interfaces

High Speed Metal Motor

• 260 RPM high speed metal motor; higher travel speed and well suitable for robot competitions.

High Speed Metal Motor

Motor with Encoder and PID Control

• 2 encoders to read real-time speed and direction, thus multiple cars running in the same map can be smoother.

• PID control for a stronger moment force in low speed.

Motor with Encoder and PID Control

Abundant Configurations

• 2 large-size RGB LEDs, supports 6 colors displaying.       

• Onboard infrared receiving sensor and buzzer. 

• Free high-quality ultrasonic sensor, which performs better than SR04 version.

• One free line-tracking map for a user-friendly experience.

Abundant Configurations
