HamiltonBuhl STEAM Education - Edison Educational Robot Kit
Named to reflect an "inventive spirit," Edison Robot is the result of a genuine passion for innovation and a vision to make electronics, engineering, robotics and programming accessible to as many people as possible.
Great across allgrade levels
These LEGO® compatible educational robots are clean, safe, reusable, expandable and robust, providing students across allgrade levels, from ages 5+, with a range of combinations, and possibilities.
Along Edison's face are Lego-compatible plates that allow the Edison robots to be scaled up into sophisticated creations, or even combined and doubled up for a more complicated system.
Each Edison robot features a host of sensors and can be programmed using a growing number of FREE software applications:
- EdBlocks – a fully graphical robot programming language that is super easy to use. A drag-and-drop block-based system, EdBlocks is intuitive and fun, even for younger users. Perfect for introducing anyone to programming, EdBlocks is ideal for students aged 8 to 12 years old.
- EdWare – a hybrid graphical robot programming software (similar to Scratch), combines drag-and-drop graphical icons with increased functionality from text-based entry, making programming fun and easy to learn!
- EdPy – the easy to learn, high readability and very popular Python programming language. EdPy teaches a real life programming language and makes text-based programming fun and easy!
Each programmable Edison robot interacts with the world via infra-red (IR) transmitters and receivers, line tracking, barcode reading, playing sounds and music, plus sound detection. It’s also equipped with two motors with variable speeds, left and right red LED lights and three control buttons.
One Edison can communicate with another over IR, with the units also able to be programmed by and controlled with TV and DVD remotes.
Each bot is powered by a set of AAA batteries.
Edison Robot Comes With:
Left and right infrared obstacle detection – Navigate through a maze and avoid collisions
Left and right light sensors – Follow a torch/flash light or find a dark corner
Clap detector – Sense load sounds such as claps to control driving
Line tracking sensor – follow lines and stay within borders
Light, Sound and Action
Left and right red LED lights – Flash the LED lights to add a cool look
Buzzer – Gives sound feedback and can play musical notes
Two motors with encoders – Drive Edison or use LEGO cross axles to power a new invention
Infrared receiver – Remote control from a standard TV/DVD remote control
Infrared LEDs – Transmit messages and control commands to another Edison robot
Infrared receiver – Receive messages and control commands from another Edison robot
Multi-functional Line Tracking Sensor
Edison’s line tracking sensor has three functions:
Detect lines – Contrast between black and white surfaces
Read barcodes that activate pre-programmed functions
Receive the programming signal from EdWare via the EdComm cable
Works with Lego® Bricks
Each Edison robot requires 4 AAA batteries (included)
