Learn and Engage with IdeaLink Step-by-Step Tutorials

IdeaBot comes with afree online project based manual, designed for complete beginners, teachers and even geeks!. It first explains how to install the Arduino IDE enviroment, and how to write simple programs. It then goes on to explain how to assemble Ideabot and the basics of robot movement. After that the various projects are explained, first line following, then obstacle avoidance, then writing and more advanced robot movement, and then using the robotic hand. Each project teaches you the basics concept and simple algorithms, and then challenges you with a more difficult project. Send your solutions (code and video) to the challenge projects to and we may publish it on our website.

Important Notes

To have the best performance using IdeaBot please follow this advice:

1- Check the polarity of the sensors and servos while plugging into the shield. Reversed polarity will turn off the circuit due to short circuit and then damage the shield.
2- Use good batteries with high power capacity, like Energizer and Panasonic.
3- Use re-chargeable batteries so you save money, we suggest to buy 12 units so you can work continuously.
4- We recommend using AA NiMH Re-Chargeable batteries as they provide better performance over longer period of time compared to the standard Alkaline batteries.
5- The servo motor power is supplied only by the jack power supplied not the arduino, so you should always have the batteries there to operate.
6- Do not leave IdeaBot power on while not using it... Always remove the power jack once you are done.
7- Use the servo power switch to turn off servo power if you only need to program sensors.
8- Contact us if you need any support or if you are experiencing any issues.

Wish you a great learning journey.
