Micro:bit Maqueen: an excellent tool for robotics and STEAM education

February 20, 2023By Peter

I spent several hours playing with the Maqueen, a wheeled robot by DFRobot that is controlled by a BBC Micro:bit microcontroller.

I loved it.

The Maqueen is easy to assemble, made of high-quality materials, with many integrated sensors and actuators. Here’s the hardware that is integrated into the Maqueen:

  • Infrared Grayscale Sensor(High-low level) x 2

  • Buzzer x 1

  • Infrared Receiver (NEC decoder) x 1

  • LED Lights (High-low level control) x 2

  • RGB Ambient Light (16 million colors) x 4

  • SR04, SR04P Ultrasonic Interface (5V) x 1

  • IIC Interface (3.3V) x 1

  • Servo Interface (S1 S2)x 2

  • Gravity Extension Interfaces (P1, P2) x 2

  • N20 All-metal Gear Motor x 2

Impressive, right?
