Build Your Own Smart Car:  PIKABOT

Everyone loves mobile robot 🙂 This is a mobile robot kit based on Maker UNO (Arduino UNO compatible). You can learn electronics, sensors, microcontrollers, and coding all at once, not to forget having fun too! And it comes with a comprehensively designed box that you can use as the mobile robot base and cover! We called it PikaBot! So enjoy building your smart car!



Maker UNO


No Soldering! Just Jumper Wires

The kit comes in loose parts, but we are here to help you build it! Make it! That is digital MAKING! Sure, you will need to assemble it, but there is no soldering needed 🙂 And to make things simpler, the detailed schematic in the Fritzing diagram is printed underneath the box’s cover.


Box = Mobile Robot Base

To further help your digital making journey, there is also a detailed and easy to understand step by step printed guide manual in the package 🙂 The manual will guide you from the beginning when you get the box, unboxing, build and program it!


Line Following with IR Line Module &

Obstacle Avoidance with Ultrasonic Distance Sensor

What can your PikaBot do? It can follow line, simple yet practical navigation that is widely used in AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) and many robot competition. The kit comes with a pair of infrared sensors that you can calibrate/teach it to recognize black and white surfaces. Calibration is fairly straight forward by tuning a potentiometer on the sensor itself. And we have also prepared the sample code to do that!

PikaBot also includes an ultrasonic distance sensor so it can measures distance in front of it. With that, it can further avoid obstacle which is near to it.


mBlock Graphical Programming Interface

Now you can program PikaBot with mBlock block-based programmming interface. Check out this tutorial to learn more.



With the beginner-friendly Maker UNO as the controller, everyone can build and program this mobile robot. We have also included

  • Dual-channel motor driver – Maker Drive
  • Two “TT” brush motor with pre-solder wires
  • 4 x AA battery to power the controller and motor
  • Of course, it comes with two IR Line Tracking Module for line following
  • An Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for obstacle avoidance
  • Accessories for the smart car to work 🙂
  • Everything is packed in a nicely designed paper box which will be utilized as the base of the mobile robot too

To make life even easier, we have prepared:

  • A printed copy of Step by Step Guide for you to build this kit (Softcopy here)
  • Sample code for line following, obstacle avoidance and melody in Arduino Sketch in Github (coming soon)
  • Video to assemble the robot is in the making, check it out (coming soon)



  • Line Following Track – Pika Track for line following:


  • Mobile Robot Kit
  • Do It Yourself (DIY) mobile robot kit
  • No soldering needed, only requires to connect jumper wires 🙂
  • Controller: Maker UNO
  • Motor Driver: Maker Drive dual-channel DC brush motor driver
