The mobile platform is an attractive educational tool that has brought to myriad effective benefits for a variety of the application fields. Furthermore, application of the mobile platform to engineering education has greatly assisted the engineering students’ firsthand experiences in college. However, most of the robotics classes offered today are concentrating on mechatronics and software education. For the advancement, this paper develops the mobile platform for the effective curriculum in teaching design and fabrication of robots in the house. The design of the proposed mobile platform bases on the knowledge of the majors subject from mechanical engineering. Through the dynamic simulation, the possibility of an introduction of the developed platform to robotics education is verified. Dynamic simulation experiments with the maximum velocity and acceleration of this system are carried out to check the application for educational purposes. As a final step, components of the platform are fabricated and assembled.
