Intended mainly for educational purposes, the low-cost TI-RSLK comes with a classroom curriculum that is intended to give users a deeper understanding of electronics systems. The first kit in the series, the Maze Edition, comprises over 60 electronic and mechanical components. At the heart of the kit is TI’s SimpleLink MSP432P401R MCU LaunchPad Development Kit.
The curriculum introduces each component within the TI-RSLK system and provides a guide to its function and purpose. The foundation given by the curriculum will then allow students to go on and develop their own code for the fully functioning robotics system, ending with a robot that can accomplish line following challenges and solve maze problems.
TI-RSLK was developed by Jon Valvano, Ph.D., an electrical and computer engineering professor at The University of Texas at Austin, and TI. TI-RSLK Maze Edition comes with 20 learning modules with lecture videos and slides, lab documentation and demonstration videos, quizzes and classroom activities. The kit and curriculum is fully customizable and comes in three different options.
