Robotino® – For research and education: Premium Edition and Basic Edition
|Select your version! Robotino® is available in two standard versions, Premium Edition and Basic Edition. These two versions differ in computing power, the size of the internal memory and the mechanical extension, the mounting tower.
|Omnidirectional drive The three drive modules of the Robotino® are integrated in a stable, laser-welded stainless steel frame. With its omnidirectional drive, Robotino® moves quick as a flash forwards, backwards and sideways and also turns on the spot. Three sturdy industrial DC motors with optical rotary encoders permit speeds of up to 10 km/h.
|Everything in view The frame contains nine infrared distance sensors. An analogue inductive sensor and two optical sensors are additionally available, enabling the Robotino® to recognize and follow predefined paths. Robotino® is supplied with a colour camera with full HD 1080p resolution.
|Uninterrupted use Power is supplied via two 12 V non-spillable lead-gel rechargeable batteries which permit a running time of up to four hours. The system is automatically switched off in time if the state of charge is too low. A power supply unit and a jack are included in the scope of delivery, which means that Robotino® can also be used for experiments or further development of control programs while it’s charging.
Control At the heart of Robotino® is an embedded PC to the COM Express specification. This is how the scalability of the computing power is achieved. In the two standard versions of Robotino®, an Intel Core i5 processor with 2.4 GHz or an Intel Atom processor with 1.8 GHz is used. The embedded PC can be exchanged at any time. The operating system and all user data are stored on a solid state disk (SSD) with 64 GB or 32 GB.
A 32-bit microcontroller that directly generates the PWM signals for actuating up to four electric DC motors is responsible for the motor control. An FPGA is used to read in the encoder values of the motors. This enables, for example, the odometer data and any additional sensor-specific correction data to be calculated directly in the microcontroller.
Expandability Additional components can be connected to the robot controller via standard interfaces such as USB and Ethernet. For subsequent expansion, the controller also provides analogue and digital inputs/outputs and relay outputs for additional actuator technology. In order to support interfaces such as EIA-485 and IEEE 1394 that are not available in the standard versions, there are two PCI Express slots for interface cards. Additional electric axes and grippers, for example, can be connected to an additional motor output and encoder input. The Premium Edition already contains the optional mounting tower for Robotino®. The mounting column of the tower offers various options for fastening mounting platforms for manipulators or sensors at different heights.
Graphical programming Robotino® View is the interactive, graphical programming and learning environment for Robotino®. It communicates directly with the robot system via wireless LAN. The programming system combines state-of-the-art operating concepts, expandability by the user and intuitive operation. After the program has been developed, it can be loaded into the controller of Robotino® in order to enable completely autonomous operation.
First steps with simulation As an add-on, you can use an attractive 3D simulation package (Robotino® SIM), which simulates the Robotino®'s travel behaviour and sensors in an appropriate working environment. This allows you to test your programs in the simulation first.
Open programming environment The programming interface (API) of Robotino® allows various programming languages and systems to be used to develop a control program. The API supports the following languages and systems:
Hardware-in-the-loop scenario If you create your own motor controller, e.g. in MATLAB, the motors of Robotino® can be controlled with this software controller via the Ethernet interface.Microcontroller programming The 32-bit microcontroller is externally accessible and can be used directly for programming custom applications.
Included in scope of delivery: Mobile robot system
Robotino® Basic Edition The variant for use in technical basic and further training with less computing power, less memory and without a mounting tower.

Robotino® – New potential at all levels
|Mobile robot platform for research and training With its omnidirectional drive, sensors, interfaces and application-specific extensions, Robotino® is equipped for universal use.
|Extremely powerful: the new computer performance With scalable computer performance for autonomous control, image processing and the evaluation of data from laser scanners.
|More interfaces than ever before More convenient, faster, more diverse: new, state-of-the-art functions ensure greatest possible system expandability.
|Open source concept Full access to the entire source code for the implementation of robot applications with common programming languages and systems.
|Sturdy and movable With three independently driven omniwheels, Robotino® can move in all directions. The stainless steel structures of the frame ensure high stability in every travel situation.
|Payload greater than unladen weight Bản quyền thuộc về Bầu cua tôm cá online - VN86 Club its sturdy design, Robotino® can move a payload of up to 30 kg while weighing 20 kg itself.
|Flexible and adaptable design Numerous mounting choices and the optional mounting tower with individually positionable platforms ensure that Robotino® can be used for a wide variety of tasks.
|Plug and play Robotino® supports various grippers, manipulators and sensors through plug and play. Robotino® recognises these components once they are connected, and the control can begin.
|Fit for research: with the Robotino® for Industry 4.0
With its new, flexible operating height, Robotino® has been fully integrated into the world of MPS® systems and research factories as an autonomous transport system.
Once programmed, Robotino® automatically identifies, for example, the correct MPS® station – the first step towards a fully automated production system!
|Typically Festo Didactic Robotino® guaranteesrapid success, giving you the necessary confidence and motivation to address complex problems.Plug-and-play Robotino® is ready for use straight away. There's no lengthy setting up, and no writing or compiling programmes. All it takes is a push of a button, and Robotino® is in action. Select your demo application and Robotino® moves autonomously.Expandable: Robotino® has all the necessary interfaces for easy integration of sensors, self-built add-ons or the like.
|With a graphical programming and learning environment Robotino ® View, the interactive graphical programming and learning environment, communicates over Wireless LAN directly with the robot system, with no compiling or downloading to the controller.All it takes is a few mouse clicks to send signals to the motor controller, or display, scale and evaluate sensor values or display a live camera image for further processing. Prepared functional blocks can be used to handle even complex tasks on a step-by-step basis.
|New learning methods for substantial training content The secret lies in the simplicity and everyday practicality of the project tasks, e.g.: Move the robot along a line without touching obstacles. The task is immediately clear to the trainee, but why does Robotino® have a problem with the solution? Where are the difficulties? These questions provide the trainee with a direct introduction to the technology built into theRobotino®. Trainees independently develop a structured approach to the solution, incorporating a range of interlinked training content, based on their experience in interaction with Robotino®.
