Project openCanSat kit is meant to ease the struggle with creating, distributing and providing support for materials - kits - that are being distributed every year to participants of the CanSat competition held by European Space Agency. The kit is based on an Arduino M0. Arduino is a family of open-source microcontroller boards widely used for hobby projects.
Technology is rapidly being developed and improved, therefore every piece of hardware left unattended gets outdated fairly quickly. The same happened to the various CanSat kits that are/used to be available.. That is why we have decided to step up and create a universal, powerful and 'up-to-date' kit that can be distributed to young students from all over Europe.
