Valiants Workshop


Beginners Valiants Project

Last year our beginner roboteers used the Magician Chassis. This year they’ve stepped up and so has the level of the robot. Our new robots may look familiar, these ‘used’ to be Valiant Roamers used in 80’s and 90’s by schools etc.

These were operated by giving the robot instructions via the touchpad on top.

Our Valiants are programmable using an Arduino Uno as a brain and have a variety of new sensors which the originals didn’t include, such as an ultrasonic sensor, a servo, two infrared sensors, wheel encoders, speaker, LED and LDR and the best of all…….an XBee. This means all ten of our Valiants can communicate with eachother!
