The car that learns as you learn
Programming languages: Blockly and Python
What you'll learn: Artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, sensors, LEDs, gyro, accelerometer, buzzers
Zumi is tiny buildable self-driving car kit that’s all about making artificial intelligence approachable. Learn about how autonomous cars use sensors and cameras to navigate around the world and learn about the environment using AI. Code her using Blockly or Python. It’s the perfect way to learn not only what AI is, but how it works.
Comes in a set of 10, 20, or 30 individual Zumi kits.
4 Hours of Professional Development Included
Hour 1 & 2:
Zumi is a very open-ended platform, so in that regard there are many things to learn. First we walk you through where to find the tutorials for students, lesson plans for teachers. Then, we go through each item in the box. We will go through where errors often happen during the building process, especially with students. We will give you a walkthrough of each section of Zumi's dashboard, and make sure you're updated to the latest version. We go through safety, maintenance, troubleshooting, and power management. Lastly, we'll code a few simple activities, using Zumi's unique sensors.
Hour 3: We will go through classroom management techniques, and actually practice these with a lesson
Hour 4: We will deep drive through 1-2 actual lessons, using all techniques covered above
*This is a general outline. Our training can be heavily tailored based on your needs.
What's in each box:
Each individual Zumi kit comes with the following:
- 1 Zumi shell
- 1 chassis
- 1 Zumi main board
- 1 Raspberry Pi Zero
- 1 OLED screen
- 1 Pi Camera
- 1 Pi Cam ribbon cable
- 1 microSD card
- 1 LiPo battery (battery life is approximately 1 hour)
- 2 DC motors
- 2 wheels
- 1 mounting bracket
- Screws and standoffs
- 1 jumper wire
