The e-puck is a small (7 cm) differential wheeled mobile robot designed for education and is also used widely for swarm robotic research. It is open hardware and software.

e-puck is powered by a dsPIC processor and features a large number of sensors in its standard configuration (IR proximity, sound, accelerometer, camera).

The e-puck hardware and software is fully open source giving low-level access to every electronic device and offering unlimited extension possibilities. A flourishing user community provides software, documentation and discussion groups.


Because of the number of sensors and actuators, the embedded processing power and the extension possibilities, the robot covers a large spectrum of educational activities. Potential educational fields are mobile robotics, real-time programming, embedded systems, signal processing, image or sound feature extraction, human-machine interaction and collective systems.
