I am looking to purchase a basic kit that can be controlled via wireless with android app or with IR remote input, I am also very interested in the collision avoidance kits. I am new to arduino, but have an electronics and networking background. Electronics background old and unused for many years! I have zero experience with any of the Arduino boards, should I buy a kitbot and a different better cpu or do the generic boards work the same as real Arduino board? I have been reading about them quite a bit, but with so many opinions out there I could really use a push!
I have 2 daughters, 10 and 6 that are both interested in helping assemble and the oldest wants to learn to program... I am also interested in the Arduino for other uses.
My question is, which basic kit should I start with? I am looking at the following kits. The first one interests me quite a bit. I would like a kit that includes the processor board, sensors and some chassis. These are example kits I have found, but am not married to either one... Please feel free to make suggestions, please! I think that a tracked chassis would be the most fun.
