e-puck version 2
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. It includes WifFi, BT, time-of-flight sensor, and USB charging.
e-puck is powered by a 32 bit microcontroller and features a large number of sensors in its standard configuration.
The e-puck hardware and software is 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.
Please see the manufacturer's wiki for detailed specifications:
The e-puck robot covers a large spectrum of educational and research demonstration 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.
