Robotics 2: Vehicles with Arduino


Language: English


The goal of this course is to teach students how to create an autonomous vehicle with the ability to detect and avoid obstacles. The course begins with the first lesson teaching about using ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles and measure distances and subsequent lessons on motor control and LCD displays. The practical component involves working with the actual hardware and writing programs for the Arduino micro-controller to control the respective device using the C language

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course, students will:

  • know what ultrasonic sensors are, how they are used for measuring distances and be able to write a program that can measure distances
  • be  able  to use  liquid crystal  displays for displays  values measured from the ultrasonic sensor
  • be able to control the speed and direction of a dc motor
  • be able to integrate all the devices above into one circuit and program
  • create a simple vehicle using the integrated circuit and program control the vehicle to detect and avoid obstacles


  • Basic PC use
  • Python basics (Optional)
