EduBot


Overview

The goal of EduBot project is to develop a small form-factor modular RHex variant that is a cost-efficient education and research tool. The development of the EduBot platform started in late 2005 as part of the NSF-FIBR program. The platform has been employed in ESE112 and ESE313 which are two undergraduate level courses in the Electrical and System Engineering Department of University of Pennsylvania. The platform has also been used for various research activities and undergraduate senior design projects.

Another RHex variant akin to EduBot v1.0; SandBot is used actively by colleagues at Georgia Tech to study methods of traversing granular surfaces, such as sand, using a legged robot.

Beginning Fall 2008, our group have focused on the new generation of the EduBot platform which is more robust than the first version in terms of mechanics, electronics and programming infrastructure.
