The super affordable, LEGO compatible, programmable robot just got better with the release of version 2.0. The Edison Robot Kit is your stepping stone into the exciting world of science and technology!
 

What’s new?

  • Precision Driving - Edison V2.0 has wheel encoders. Wheel encoders allow Edison to travel specific distances at exact speeds. Think of it as cruise control. Edison can now also turn to specific angles (using EdPyApp.com) and drive straight – VERY straight.
  • Clutch mechanism - Edison V2.0 has a clutch in each gear box that prevents damage to the gears if the wheels are forced around. This means Edison V2.0 is even tougher.
  • More power
  • Longer range obstacle detection 
  • Longer battery life
  • A more sensitive clap sensor
  • More programme memory
  • More programming options - Edison’s graphical programming software, EdWare is getting some friends. Meet EdPy and EdBlocks.
    • EdPy - EdPy is a Python based programming environment for Edison. It’s FREE, online and the best way we can think of to introduce students to a written programming language. Students can now write programs in Python and see their code come to life in Edison. Check it out here www.edpyapp.com
    • EdBlocks is a super simple graphical programming language for introducing younger students to programming. EdBlocks is based on Scratch Blocks created by the MIT Media Lab and Google. EdBlocks is in the final stages of development and will be launched before the end of the year as an online app.

Why Edison?

  • Affordable
  • FREE open source graphical programming software called EDWare
  • FREE robotics lesson plans
  • FREE robotics activity mat
  • FREE EdBooks
  • LEGO® compatible
  • Easy to use - suitable for all ages
  • Built to last

Who is Edison for?

Edison Robot is for students of all ages. You can learn computer programming just like other robotics systems which can cost much, much more. Edison is a great resource for teachers as classroom sets are now very affordable for schools – it’s now possible to have one robot per student. Edison is the perfect teaching and learning robot for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities!

What can Edison do?

  • Navigate his way around by detecting obstacles to his left or right
  • Be controlled by a standard TV/DVD remote
  • Follow a line or stay within a boarder
  • Follow a fl ash light
  • Communicate with another Edison using infrared light – robot swarm anyone?!!
  • Play beeps and musical tunes
  • Respond to clapping and other loud sounds
  • Move in any direction through his differential drive system

Edison has:

  • infrared obstacle detectors (left and right)
  • line tracking sensor
  • light sensors (left and right)
  • infrared receiver
  • infrared transmitter
  • piezo sounder
  • sound sensor
  • two motors with variable speeds
  • left and right red LED lights
  • and three control buttons

NEW EdBlock - Scratch Based Coding

The EdBlock App uses scratch based code to make programming your edison a breeze. The block code programming language uses DRIVE, OUTPUTS, WAIT UNTIL, CONTROL and START EVENTS that easily connect together like a puzzle.

 
EdBlocks is available online, just like the EdWare software there is no installation, no driver software and is completely FREE.

EdWare - Robot Programming Software

EdWare uses drag and drop graphical icons to make programming Edison super easy. Learn all the principals of robotics and programming with EdWare.  This simple ‘drag and drop’ graphical programming language uses CONTROL,READ, DATA and FLOW instructions that are linked together in a logical ’flowchart’ style.


EdWare is available online and made it super simple to access. No installation, no driver software and as always
FREE ! Just plug your Edison in and start programming!
