The CAROBOT SwissCHEESE kit is a modular platform designed to simplify electronics project and to facilitate the teaching of programming and robotics. Inspired by the TinkerKit and lessons learned from teaching robotics, the SwissCHEESE uses a standard 3 wires connection to power and transfer signal between modules and use a shield module to communicate with a host Arduino microcontroller board.

Each SwissCHEESE module comes with LED light for status display and standard 1cm pitch mounting holes for easy attachment of hardware structure.

Kit includes:
Light Sensor
Temperature Sensor
Ultrasonic Sensor
Infrared Sensor
3-Pin Jumper Wire (x10)
Storage Box
