    eRacer 16m



    eLabtronics eRacer_16m is the newer modified version of the eRacer. It was created in order to provide an introduction to electronics, microcontroller programming and robotics. The eRacer_16m is particularly suited to educational and hobbyist activities because of its low cost and comprehensive technical documentation. The eRacer_16m utilises the innovative CoreChart and ezCircuit Designer software packages. For detailed projects utilising the eRacer16m contact the STEMSEL Foundation or visit their website


    • Easily constructed by students who have basic soldering skills.
    • Kit supplied with eRacer_16m parts and electronic components.
    • Uses the PICF819 microcontroller via the eLab16m board.
    • The eLab16m is reusable, i.e. it can be used for other projects, not only the eRacer_16m.
    • 14 lines wired for input and output operation.
    • Can be programmed to avoid obstacles, move along lines and even follow a light source.
    • Comes with eRacer_16m Robotics Resource CD, includes:

      • IBM PC Programming Software (CoreChart, ezCircuit Designer, MPLAB)
      • Detailed manual on electronic assembly and mechanical construction
      • Programming tutorials
      • Extensive technical data library

    Input/Output Circuits

    • L293D driver chip used to operate two independent motors.
    • Infrared transmitter and receiver to detect objects in front of the eRacer_16m.
    • Two light sensors on the base of the eRacer to follow lines along the ground and to detect different coloured light sources.
    • One bright red and one bright green LED mounted on the base of the eRacer_16m to emit different coloured light
    • Two independent bright red LEDs at the front
    • One buzzer and One Pushbutton
