Selecting the right sensor and development board

Hi Guys.
I bought this little kit to build with the kids.

Can anyone suggest the best microcontroller and sensors to use?
or share any experiences doing something similar?

Hi Andrew,

I’ve opted to send through some products with the best documentation and fastest avenue to success rather than what might be the highest performing.
(From this guide) Arduino SELF-BALANCING Robot -



Motor driver:

Along with a battery this collection of parts ought to get your hardware sorted out.

My class at uni made some balancing robots from the ground up using a more engineering approach rather than the Maker way of throwing a PID at the problem (and hand tuning).

Awesome, Thanks Liam.
I have placed an order and will hopefully update this post with a success story.

Awesome uni project. Looks like your 3d printer got some good use.
