Zumi, made by Robolink, is a tiny buildable self-driving car kit that’s all about making artificial intelligence approachable. The device teaches about how autonomous cars use sensors and cameras to navigate around the world and learn about the environment using AI. Code the vehicle using Blockly or Python.

Robolink works to empower educators and classrooms around the world with tools to help students explore the wonders of coding, engineering, and innovation through robotics.\
