Description
 

AMIGOBOT is based on an ActivMedia Robotics-style architecture stripped to its barest bones for affordable use in multi-robot and classroom applications. Rangefinding is handled by six forward and two rear sonar; shaft encoders track x,y,theta position. Differential drive and nearly holonomic design provide good mobility over carpet edges and small sills. Sensor, motor and power monitoring and control information is sent in packets over a wireless or tethered RS232 serial connection to your PC. Payload maximum is 1kg (2lbs). The AmigoBot is designed as a closed system to discourage internal tampering rather than encouraging extenisibility as do other ActivMedia Robot bases. Includes ARIA API libraries for C++ under Linux or WIN2000/XP.

AMIGOBOT CONFIGURATIONS
 

AMIGOBOT TM with Serial Ethernet is the robot for someone who wants to be able to fully operate and program a robot. With this system, you can:

  • drive the robot indoors up to 300 feet from your PCamigo with serial ethernet
  • create maps for the robot to navigate
  • send the robot to make deliveries, point-n-click, avoiding obstacles along the way
  • see the robot's 8 sonar display
  • read the robot's action status messages
  • program new behaviors
  • modify demo behaviors
  • make the robot talk
  • download your own sounds to the robot

AmigoBot TM with Serial Ethernet includes:

  • AmigoBot TM differential-drive mobile robot with 8 rangefinding sonar, twin 500-tick motor encoders, Renesas SH7144-driven microcontroller, dual serial ports, 1Mb onboard RAM, 2 drive wheels and motors, rear caster, speaker, long-life, rechargeable battery and rugged molded plastic shell
  • ARIA API + SONARNL Sensor-based Localization + Navigation
  • MobileSim simulator for testing programs offboard
  • MobileEyes and Mapper Basic for map-building and robot control
  • AmigoBot Serial Ethernet
  • AmigoBot TM User's Guide
  • serial download cable
  • charger

To run each AmigoBot TM with Serial Ethernet system you will require:

  • Desktop PC, 300 MHz or faster, with one free serial port
  • WIN 2000/XP or Linux operating system
  • Hard drive with at least 11Mb free space
  • CD ROM drive
  • IEEE 80211b Ethernet access point (on your hub) or peer-to-peer station adapter


AMIGOBOT TM with Tether is the low-cost option for someone who can't yet afford wireless serial ethernet. With the tethered robot, you can:

  • drive the robot indoors within 15 feet of your PCamigo with tether
  • create small area maps for the robot to navigate
  • send the robot to new positions, avoiding obstacles along the way
  • see the robot's 8 sonar display
  • read the robot's action status messages
  • program new behaviors
  • modify demo behaviors
  • make the robot talk
  • download your own sounds to the robot

AmigoBot TM with Tether includes:

  • AmigoBot TM differential-drive mobile robot with 8 rangefinding sonar, twin 500-tick motor encoders, Renesas SH7144-driven microcontroller, dual serial ports, 1Mb onboard RAM, 2 drive wheels and motors, rear caster, speaker, long-life, rechargeable battery and rugged molded plastic shell
  • ARIA API + Sensor-based Localization + Navigation
  • MobileSim simulator for testing programs offboard
  • MobileEyes and Mapper Basic for map-building and robot control
  • AmigoBot TM User's Guide
  • serial tether
  • charger

To run each AmigoBot TM with Tether system you will require:

  • Desktop PC, 300 MHz or faster, with one free serial port
  • WIN 2000/XP or Linux operating system
  • Hard drive with at least 11Mb free space
  • CD ROM drive


OPTIONAL PAIR AMIGOFINGERS are compatible with any  AmigoBot TMAmigoBot with Fingers

  • Passive grasp holds tennis ball or other object during forward motion
  • Passive release of object during reverse motion
  • Manual screw mounts on each finger allow varied grasp widths
