Projects for Robot Inventor

The LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor (51515) kit is LEGO's newest version of LEGO MINDSTORMS. It includes four motors, a distance (ultrasonic) sensor, a color (light) sensor, and an all-new intelligent brick hub design.

Robot Inventor uses similar LEGO TECHNIC building parts as the previous NXT and EV3 kits (although a different set to work with), but it uses a totally different programming system, with a choice of a friendly Scratch-based "Word Blocks" system, or the Python text-based language.

Below are projects specifically for the Robot Inventor kit. All of these designs can be built with a single Robot Inventor kit with no extra parts. Complete building instructions are provided, and many programs are provided as well.
