The Kitronik :MOVE mini Mk2 buggy kit for the BBC micro:bit is the latest version of our ever-popular :MOVE mini that provides a fun introduction to robotics.

Note: micro:bit not included - available separately here.

The :MOVE mini is a 2-wheeled robot that is suitable for autonomous operation, remote control projects via a Bluetooth application or being controlled using a second BBC micro:bit as a controller via the micro:bit's radio functionality.

The Mk2 features a brand new set of injection moulded wheels with 0-ring rubber tyres. The wheels maintain the large size, relative to the chassis, and add improved traction for better performance than the original buggies laser-cut wheels. MK2 goes where V1.0 could not!

The :MOVE mini is powered by two continuous rotation servo motors. The speed of these servos can be controlled by simply altering the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal to the servo, which is easy to do using the Servo blocks in the Microsoft PXT Block editor. We have also produced Kitronik custom blocks for the Servo:Lite to make the task of coding as quick and painless as possible, see the resources section at the foot of this page for more information.

The buggy also has 5 x RGB individually addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible), which can be used as indicators, reverse lights etc...

It is possible to add a pen or other extra parts to the kit to increase the range of tasks for which it can be used.

The included Kitronik :MOVE servo:lite board can also be used in conjunction with a BBC micro:bit to build other movement based projects. We've produced a wide range of tutorials and guides that can be found in the resources section below. We have guides detailing; how to control a third servo, how to code the buggy to draw shapes, how to write code for the on-board ZIP LEDs, how to code the buggy for Bluetooth control and how to use a second micro:bit as a controller.

Excellent Add-ons!
