Robot Kit

Microcontroller based Project

As you know our site is based on Simple Electronics Project Circuit. But to achieve higher performance, (Engineering Level Project) now day’s electronics kits uses Advance Digital Circuit for high quality output.
Advance Project requires a circuit which can be programmed for different work and can be capable of sensing from surroundings by using all types of sensors or module available in the market. i.e. (Remote Sensor, Keyboard,LCD Panel, Ultra sound sensor, RF Data, Sound, Gas Sensor, Memory chip reader/writer, humidity sensor etc.)
Among many I found two advance types of Kits which will be best for Hobby Circuit and also can be used in Robot.
This two Advance Controller Kits are PICAXE and ARDUINO which you can use in almost all Electronics Project. Among both arduino is more advance.

PICAXE Kits PICAXE microcontrollers are exciting, low-cost, re-programmable chips that can be used as low-cost ‘brains’ in many kinds of electronic project.
Among different PIC chips, I recommend PICAXE 28×1. PICAXE needs Serial port for programming which can be directly connected to computer on the other hand Arduino supports USB which is commonly used everywhere.
PICAXE is programmed using a simple BASIC language or via the Logicator flowcharting software. Windows Mac and Linux are all supported by the free BASIC software which can be downloaded from


Arduino Uno is a new version 2011 microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.

*Contains everything required to support the microcontroller
