The AlphaBot2 robot kit is designed to use with the BBC micro:bit (not included) and features a great list of popular robot features including line tracking, obstacle avoiding, ultrasonic ranging, Bluetooth remote control (via Android app), RGB LEDs, a buzzer and more!

Thanks to the highly integrated modular design, it's very easy to assemble without any soldering or fiddly wiring. After a few minutes assembling the kit, you're ready to code!

The user guide can be found here.

Important notes:

  • This robot requires a BBC micro:bit which is not included but can be purchased here.
  • 3.6V 14500 rechargeable lithium batteries with at least 800mAh capacity are required but not included (coming soon to the store!). AA batteries will not work!


AlphaBot2 employs a 2-layer structure to provide excellent stability and compatibility.

AlphaBot2-Base (the lower base chassis)

  • 5-ch infrared sensor, analogue output, combined with PID algorithm, stable line tracking
  • Onboard modules like line tracking, obstacle avoiding, needs no messy wiring
  • TB6612FNG dual H-bridge motor driver, compared with L298P, it's more efficient, more compact, and less heating
  • N20 micro gear motor, with metal gears, low noise, high accuracy
  • Onboard RGB LEDs, true colour lighting

AlphaBot2 for micro:bit (the upper adapter board for the controller)

  • micro:bit dedicated connector, for easily connecting with the micro:bit
  • MP1584 voltage regulator, provides stable 5V output
  • RT9193-33 voltage regulator, provides stable 3.3V voltage to the micro:bit
  • TLC1543 AD acquisition chip, allows the micro:bit to use analog sensors
  • PCA9685 PWM control chip, I/O expander
  • Onboard buzzer to play music
  • Dimensions: 110xx x 98mm
