RoadTest: Arduino Engineering Kit
Evaluation Type: Development Boards & Tools
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?:
What were the biggest problems encountered?: Simulink files and Matlab files did not install properly. Issues with the demo code.
Thank you to Element14 team for selecting me from the competitive Road test for Arduino Engineering Kit. I applied for this road-test since the Engineering Kit looked much fun to have and play with. I am not much Arduino expert and learning new things about Arduino in my free time after university.
This kit has 3 projects parts:
I am very excited to make all the three projects. From the parts in box they are re-usable. After each project the parts are removed to use in another project. It was better if I can have all 3 projects at the same time but not possible in this kit. This project box is recommended for people like myself with limited knowledge but want to learn about Arduino.
The box has many small and big parts. There are 2 levels in the box with many parts, nuts and screws. Each component is packed in a good way. There is also a battery pack and battery charger. A universal travel adapter is also in the box but I do not used it because the charger has European connector.
All contents of the box as shown in the website. https://store.arduino.cc/arduino-engineering-kit

anuag_ashim , have you decided on the conclusion and the details on issues on the motorcycle? With two other road test reviews in, it seems that that road test feedback will provide valuable input for the supplier on quality improvements.
The links to the detailed blogs near the end don’t work, except for the two ones where you report technical issues with the examples. Maybe the URL is incorrect.
