Features

Compatibility

BoosterBot adheres to the 40-pin BoosterPack standard, meaning it should be compatible with most 40-pin LaunchPads.

However, it has only been tested with the MSP430F5529 LaunchPad.

Software Support

BoosterBot supports Arduino code using the Energia library. There are code examples for line tracking, distance tracking, and wireless communication using Bluetooth and the AIR BoosterPack to get you started.
