uCode

Software you can use alone or pair with UKIT Advanced

uCode is the web programming environment that takes machine learning to the next level. Students of all levels can program using block-based coding and dual text-based programming. uCode not only programs UKIT robots but goes above and beyond, allowing students to create digital games and animations, drive 3D simulations, and utilize real-time AI programming.


In order to connect the UKIT Advanced board within uCode, users must install and open the uCode Connection Assistant (PC or Mac) within uCode (they will be prompted when trying to connect).

uCode Connection Assistant for Windows

Release date: 2022-04-1 Version number: V4.1.0-1
The hardware connection assistant on the uCode webpage allows uCode to connect and control hardware devices in the physical world.

uCode Connection Assistant for macOS

Release date: 2022-04-1 Version number: V4.1.0-1
The hardware connection assistant on the uCode webpage allows uCode to connect and control hardware devices in the physical world.

uCode Extension for Chromebooks

Release date: 2021-10-12 Version number: V4.0.0-6
The hardware connection assistant on the uCode webpage allows uCode to connect and control hardware devices in the physical world.

  • 3D, 360-degree modeling system to support students through each build (38 total builds for UKIT Advanced)
  • AI-integrated blocks and machine model training environment to enable students to incorporate AI functionality into projects
  • Virtual stage mode to allow students to create games, animations, and virtual programs that also connect with UKIT hardware
  • Upload mode to support dual programming with block-based and text-based (C/C++) programming ability (connects with Arduino IDE)
  • 3D simulation lab with virtual drive programming environments for programming virtual robots without external hardware
  • uCode web, which is optimized for Google Chrome and best runs within the Chrome browser
