$ 1,920.00

e-puck with Extension and Gumstix Overo Earth

This is a bundle which contains an e-puck, and a small mobile computer extension (Gumstix e-puck extension, Overo Earth, pre-configured microSD). The extension allows the COM to be connected to the e-puck which adds a Linux processor, some long range proximity sensors, Wi-Fi, and other features.

e-puck annotated


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.

The enxtension and the Gumstix COM enhance e-puck features with Linux embedded computer on module.

  • Teaching
  • Collective robotics
  • Evolutionary robotics
  • Art-Oriented robotics

e-puck Extension w/ COM, annotated



  • Gumstix Overo COMs: compatible with all Gumstix Overo COM models. The communication between the Gumstix Overo COM (OMAP 35xx) and the e-puck (dsPIC) is handled with a serial line at 230400 baud
  • Mini-usb connector (console) used to enter the linux system through a terminal
  • One usb otg and one usb host: these two connectors are really useful to connect whatever peripheral you need, like a WiFi dongle or simply a flash drive to extend the storage
  • Speaker (speaker specification): with Linux running on the Gumstix Overo COM, it's really easy play any audio format you need or implement a speech synthesizer. If the user prefer to have the speaker on the extension linked to the e-puck processor, it can simply be done changing two small resistors
  • 8 LEDs: have you ever seen a board without leds?! Anyway they are completely controllable through GPIO lines (gpio70-gpio77)
  • Rotary selector: one could choose what program is running on the e-puck based on the selector position
  • 2 long range infrared proximity sensors (long range specification)
  • the PixelPlus PO6030 camera remains mounted on the robot, but you could receive image from it by using the OMAP ISP (Camera Interface Subsystem); this way we can receive up to 18 frames per second (VGA color images)
