Micromouse Kit

The MMKit (Micromouse Kit) is a physical platform based on an embedded system transformed into a robot. It aims to be an educational robotics kit intended for the learning and development of robots whose main purpose is to solve a maze. MMkit is a complete and high-performance robotic platform.

Features

The MMKit is programmed through the use of C language with the ARDUINO programming environment IDE. It has the model microcontroller ATmega32u4 with the “bootloader” or the Arduino Leonardo, so the robot is programmed as if it were an Arduino.
