Parallax 28992 Eddie Robot Platform - Unassembled

 This unit is: Unassembled.

This product is sold assembled (#28990) or unassembled.

Eddie is a turnkey hardware solution to create a mobile robot with your own laptop and Kinect camera — a perfect platform to foster creativity, innovation, and experimentation.

Once fully assembled, simply connect your own laptop and Kinect camera (not included) over USB and Eddie is up roaming the house in minutes. Compatible with Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio 4 (RDS 4), Eddie can navigate autonomously and see in 3D using the power of the Microsoft Kinect.

Five distance sensors (three infrared and two ultrasonic) detect objects to help avoid collisions, providing sight where the Kinect cannot see. Eddie is well-equipped to navigate and interact with dynamic environments, using sensor fusion to integrate the Kinect’s 3D vision, color imaging, and sound processing with the platform’s wheel encoders. Eddie is also fully expandable and hackable, making it easy to add sensors, accessories, and custom add-ons.

The heart of the Eddie Control Board is the Propeller P8X32A microcontroller. The Propeller chip’s eight 32-bit cores provide incredible power and flexibility. The board includes high-current motor drivers, an eight-channel 10-bit ADC, and access to lots of digital I/O. Multiple regulated power supplies (12 V, 5 V, and 3.3 V) and three switchable auxiliary power ports support optional accessories (like under-body LED lighting).

Eddie is powered with long-lasting dual 12 V, 14.4 Ah gel-cell batteries. A 3A smart battery charger is included. Fully charged batteries provide a typical run-time of around 4–7 hours so you can keep innovating without interruption.

Features:

  • Compatible with Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio 4 (RDS4)
  • Dual-platform design with plenty of room for electronics and on-the-go programming laptop access
  • Two drive wheels with high-torque 12 VDC motors and position controllers
  • Front and rear dual-tire caster wheels for platform stability
  • Durable pneumatic rubber tires easily traverse hard floors and carpet
  • Five distance sensors (three infrared and two ultrasonic) for collision avoidance
  • Fully integrated control board handles all lower-level hardware operations to drive motors and collect sensor data
  • Simple USB connectivity between control board and your laptop
  • 12 V, 14.4Ah gel-cell batteries for 4–7 hours of continuous operation
