This is a great introductory kit to mechatronics engineering, and is used in the UTS Mechatronics Engineering course.

This kit comes in three versions:

  1. UNO RFID Kit V2.1 (see update note): The full kit designed to give you all options for the assignments and for your personal projects.  Used throughout the Mechatronics Engineering stream in later subjects.
    UPDATE:  This is now the Uno RFID Kit V2.1 - this comes in a cardboard box (our push towards a greener future), but includes a 5V relay module (for higher voltage control circuits) and a USB-C adapter (for using the Uno with newer laptops). The Uno RFID Kit V2 is discontinued and no longer restocked.
  2. Introduction to Mechatronics Engineering Base kit + Tutorial Add-on: Designed to accommodate both the Assignment and Tutorials for Introduction to Mechatronics Engineering, and to give you more options for the assignments.
  3. Introduction to Mechatronics Engineering Base kit only: Only designed to accommodate for the assignments.

An additional variant for having LCD screens pre-soldered with I2C modules is available.  You will have an opportunity to learn how to solder in an optional soldering workshop later in the subject, however spots for this are limited.

Note: the Base kit alone does not come with an LCD screen.  The "unsoldered LCD" option for this variant is just a place holder.
