The Cartinu is a small robot car that you could build yourself. But don’t worry! It isn’t that complicated – this circuit, is so simple, that there are very few things that could go wrong. The “brain” of the Cartinu is the Tinusaur board that is powered by the popular Atmel ATtiny85 microcontroller.
Once your Cartinu is ready you could start programming it.
On the chassis, you have 2 powerful planetary gear motors. You also have 2 infrared proximity sensors on the bottom of the chassis. That allows you to program the Cartinu to follow a black line on the floor.
The Cartinu is part of the Tinusaur project. It is important to mention that the Tinusaur and the Cartinu are an open source project? Both the software and the hardware! You can buy all parts, fabricate the PCBs, and assemble them yourself.
The Cartinu is almost ready for production and is part of the crowdfunding campaign that we are launching on January 22nd 2018.

More information about the Cartinu will be posted on its page.
As you may have noticed we’ve extended our campaign by a couple of days to allow more people to get their perks over the weekend.
We’re 175% over our original goal, $4522 raised – with 12 hours still left to go.
We’re so excited that we’ve decided to make this pledge: if we reach 200% or $5000 (whichever happens first) before the end of the campaign (i.e. in about 12 hours) we promise that we will make the Tinusaur Car – a 2-wheel mini car that can follow a line – and we will make it available on our website.
We are already building a working prototype.
What can you do to help us reach our next goal?
- Go to our campaign https://igg.me/at/tinusaur support us – get a perk.
- Share our campaign link https://igg.me/at/tinusaur with your friends or through your social media channels.
Wish us luck for the next 12 hours!
The Tinusaur Team.
