Robotics Education Boards
We have several years of experience designing and manufacturing different technologies-compatible hardware and sensors. Below you can see an early prototype (green board on the left) for the BOE Shield (right) we designed in collaboration with Parallax, under the request of Robotic developers. The BOE Shield has been in the market for a couple of years and is a very successful product.
IEE Labs, India is offering educational kits for hobbyist, engineers, students, research scholar, electronics professionals. These kits are designed in such a manner that they can cover both theory and practical aspects both. Every kits covers various practical and theoretical applications. Kits are well tested and easily constructible. Step by step guides and sample programmers create ease of use.
- All-in-one kit, a great starter kit for learning to code.
- Model Type: UNO Rev R3
- Microcontroller Chip: ATmega328
- Input Voltage(Recommended): 7-12V
- Operating Voltage: 5
- Analog I/O Pins: 6
- Digital I/O Pins: 14 (of which 6 provide PWM output)
Robots have been in use for all kinds of manufacturing and in all manner of exploration vehicles—and in many science fiction films—for a long time. The word ‘robot’ first appeared in a Czechoslovakian satirical play, Rossum’s Universal Robots, by Karel Capek back in 1920! Robots in this play tended to be human-like, and much science fiction that followed involved these robots trying to fit into society and make sense out of human emotions.
Then, General Motors installed the first robots in its manufacturing plant in 1961. Those automated single-purpose machines presented an entirely different image from the human-like robots of science fiction. As technology continues to advance, increasingly human-like robots designed for socially oriented tasks are emerging, and many types of robots co-exist today.
Regardless of a robot’s outer form, building and programming most robots requires combination of mechanics, electronics, and problem-solving. What you can learn from this tutorial will be relevant to real-world robot applications. Of course, there will be differences in size and sophistication, but the underlying mechanical principles, basic circuits, and programming concepts are used by engineers every day.
New uses for robots are emerging constantly. Roboticists are in demand! Get a taste of engineering, mechatronics, and software development as you construct, wire, and program the Shield-Bot, a small autonomous robot.
