Control

Control your robots in many ways: Play back standard movements, teach it manually what to do, remotely control it via our App or program custom movements through the Arduino platform.

Tilt control

Build your robot and get started

Each module already knows a pre-defined movement like grabbing, turning or twisting. Once you connect the modules to the Powerbrain, you can turn it on and press Play to see the standard movements.

1

Turn the Powerbrain on by pressing Play

2

Press Play again: Now your robot starts moving

3

Pressing (+) and (–) you control the speed of the movement


Teach your robot by recording and playing

You can teach your robot how to move by showing it movements with your hands: Our modules, like the Twister and Pivot, are able to learn new movements.

1

Build your robot, pick it up and press Record

2

Move the modules the way you want them to move later on

3

Hit Play: Now the robot repeats what you have just taught it


Remotely control through the App

You can remotely control your robot with your smartphone or tablet using our Tinkerbots App. Download it for iOS and Andoid control your robot through Bluetooth.

1

Launch the App and follow the instructions

2

Select the robot model you wish to control

3

Use the App controls to move your robot


Let the sensors control

Your robot is intelligent and knows how to identify obstacles and light sources through the infrared (IR) distance sensor and the light sensor:

1

Connect the sensors to your robot while building it

2

Link them to the motion modules using the App

3

Now the sensors guide the robot giving out signals


Programming in Arduino

For more advanced users: You can also program your robots yourself! The microcontroller inside the Powerbrain is compatible with Arduino so that you can program the models using C programming language. More info can be found here
