Summary: 

mOway is a programmable autonomous robot. It is a perfect educational tool for those who wish to take their first steps in the world of robotics and for those who have already worked with robots.
The mOway robot is fitted with a number of sensors that help us to move around a real environment. It is also equipped with a motor that enables it to travel on the floor. All these peripheral devices are connected to a microcontroller, which is responsible for controlling the robot.
Working with mOway and Scratch multiplies the possibilities offered by both environments, generating a scenario that combines exercises with a blend of computer programming and the real world and object programming.
• mOway is an autonomous mobile robot, which, without having to be connected to the computer, can be programmed from the Scratch environment.
• mOway sensors, motors and actuators can be programmed from Scratch and can be read and controlled in movement.
• mOway allows students to simulate and understand examples from real life in a practical manner, and discover how elements from our daily lives work, such as a remote control, the garage door sensor, a mobile phone, and so on.
• mOway gives life to everything the students program on their screens, and helps them to understand and assimilate concepts.
