Thunderboard™ React Derby Car Kit

The Car Kit bundles a miniature derby car with your Thunderboard React board. The Thunderboard React can be mounted on the Derby car, and with the free mobile app you can measure the speed and movements of the car. The mobile app seamlessly communicates between the Thunderboard and the cloud database to visualize sensor data collected or control the LED states on the Thunderboard React hardware. Individual components of the Thunderboard™ React can be easily integrated and modified in order to add BLE-to-cloud connectivity for a user’s particular application.
