They are widely popular and are commonly used in schools, high schools and mechatronics training in companies. Apart from this hobby robot builders commonly use these kits.

Another popular kit is manufactured by the legendry Lego Mindstorms and consists of mechanical parts, an advanced controller, various sensors and actuators, and a software environment in order to program the constructed robot.

In the qfix kits the mechanical parts are made of aluminum and all elements are industry standard. The mechanical elements in these kits include bars and plates, holders for motors and sensors, axes and wheels.

Generally, Atmel controllers are used as electronics components.Mastering this activity can lead you to the competitions that are held at various levels for robot building. This can be the most rewarding experience for any participant to present and display his or her robot.
