Educational Robot Provides Open Learning

Description

e.DO is an open-source articulated robot that can pick up any object and run any application that falls within its speed and payload parameters. Available as a “build it yourself” kit for enthusiasts, as part of an educational package for academics or as an infotainment kiosk for museums and event centers, e.DO is ready to help you explore and expand the world of robotics.

 

e.DO comes with everything needed to construct a multi-axis articulated robot with integrated open-source intelligence. Available with 6 motorized axes and a maximum payload of 1 kg, e.DO can do everything from executing simple pick and place movements to handling automated activities.

 

In the classroom or at an event, e.DO can help deliver a hands-on experience that encourages participation, cooperation and inclusion among participants. The modular and flexible design of e.DO allows schools and organizations to tailor their e.DO Experience based on the location, the event, the learning objectives and the size of the audience.

 

e.DO combines the underlying technology expertise of Comau – a leading industrial automation company – with a comprehensive open-source philosophy. Externally, e.DO can be enhanced with user-developed accessories and configurations. Internally, e.DO’s ROS-native, open-source control logic gives users complete freedom to create and execute their own programs and applications.

 

As an innovative learning tool, e.DO can integrate and consolidate key skill areas including, Robotics, STEM subjects, cooperation, communication, problem-solving, teamwork, creativity and other Soft Skills.

 

Because e.DO is run with the Robot Operating System (ros.org), robot enthusiasts can program e.DO with a wide range of languages such as C/C++, python, Java and interact with any hardware or software component that is ROS compatible. ROS is also used by students of all ages – from kids interacting with robots in museum exhibits to graduate students learning about the latest solutions to common robotics problems.
