LaunchBot is a $15.00 programmable robot with a 16bit processors from TI.
The robot is programmed in C, using a professional development environment called Code Composer Studio.
Latest Activity: Mar 12
This firmware is for the MSP430Launchpad and is based off the TI Launchpad example for Code Composer Studio 4.
The firmware turns LaunchBot into a line follower.

LaunchBot is built using this $10.00 kit from kitsusa as a base:
and this $4.30 kit from TI with a 16bit MSP430 as it's intelligence:
The total cost of the robot is less then $15.00
The robot includes two line sensors ( IR sensors pointing down ) and two motors providing differential drive. This robot is perfect for line following and maze competitions.
The robot is programmed in C using the professional development tool, Code Composer Studio, from TI. The TI MSP430 in the Launchpad kit is a professional RISC microcontroller used in automotive, industrial, and medical products around the world. Time spent working with the TI Launchpad and the MSP430 can be counted on your resume. Design experience with the TI MSP430 and a understanding of the Code Composer Studio development environment are skills desired by many employers.
