Abstract—How to improve mobile and ubiquitous learning with an innovative approach is a challenge task. To achieve this objective, we designed and implemented a self-propelled toy car based learning system. Our new learning system integrated various advanced technologies such as the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), location service, wireless sensor network, an attractive remote control toy car, three-dimensional toy models and multimedia teaching contents, etc. With the aid of this system, the teacher can easily conduct teaching activities in the classroom, the building hall or the outdoor anytime. The most important features of our system are not only to save the students’ trouble and cost on transportation to learn, but also to motivate the students to learn knowledge as if they are playing the game with the toy car. Our learning system has merits of easily assembling and flexibly updating teaching content.
