mBot Ranger includes approximately 100 mechanical parts and electronic modules. There are 3 preset forms: the tank-like Off-road Land Raider, the three-wheel racing car Dashing Raptor, and the Self-balancing Nervous Bird. No matter whether it’s a muddy track or a challenging arena, mBot Ranger can conquer any terrain.
The highly advanced Dashing Raptor, with super-speed and intelligent line following abilities, is your trusty companion in any competition. It will keep pace with you all the way, as you race to glory!
With multiple integrated functions, Ranger is the ideal companion for children as they explore the world
mBot Ranger integrates six types of sensor including: Light sensor, Temperature sensor, Sound sensor, Ultrasonic sensor, Line Follower sensor and Gyroscope. This broad range of sensors allows Ranger to perform a variety of functions including data collection, line following and obstacle avoidance. Children can also use Ranger to work on interesting projects, such as traversing the Antarctic to assist with scientific research!
There are two ways in which you can direct Ranger without the need for programming. 1. Open the Makeblock App. With one click you can use the remote-control driving function, voice control, or the “Draw and Run” function. 2. Use the Makeblock Bluetooth Remote Controller to control Ranger. There are 15 buttons and 2 joysticks, making its operation smooth and easy. Positive experiences operating the robot can help children form a bond with Ranger quickly, and further stimulate their interest in programming.
The mBlock Blockly App integrates block-based programming knowledge into a game with lots of enjoyable levels. It features a guide called Mr. Panda, who shows children how to program to control their Ranger remotely, and guides them through each game level. At each stage they can unlock new knowledge points, and thus gradually master programming skills.
Want to learn more complex skills? Try mBlock 5 on PC client. Simply drag and combine command modules like building blocks to control the movements of Ranger. You can also switch to Arduino C  text-based programming with one click, to continue advancing your skills. If you want to wirelessly link Ranger to your computer, you can use the Makeblock Bluetooth Dongle to speed up the programming.

Ranger’s main control board is equipped with 10 extension interfaces, which can connect to more than 100 electronic modules to achieve a broad range of functions. Choose an add-on pack and more than 500 kinds of mechanical and electronic parts on the Maker’s Platform to build a variety of Ranger forms. In the process of building, children using Ranger can develop a preliminary understanding of robots, and exercise creative thinking as their ideas become reality.
Ranger’s cool and ever-changing forms have gripped children, both young and old, all over the world. With systematic teaching materials, parents can explore with their children, and work side by side with them to overcome difficulties and relish the joys of success. Children can also participate in the MakeX international robotics competition, where they can compete in round after round of fun and stimulating competition. It’s a challenge that constantly improves their programming, mechanics, and strategy skills. Competing as a team in the tournament is also a great way for children to build friendships and learn.
The supporting materials available are also suitable for classroom teaching. For those who have specific needs, Makeblock also provides customized teaching programs to contribute to improved standards of education.
