Learners experiment, explore and cultivate their innovativeness while having fun
Meet Edison — the modular robot that immerses students in robotics, programming, math, engineering and other STEM concepts. Using infrared light and sound sensors, Edison can find its way around obstacles, sense light levels, detect lines and respond to sound commands. You can even program the robot to be controlled by a standard TV or DVD remote!
Edison is ready to use right out of the box. It comes preloaded with functions that are activated by driving the robot over included bar code cards. When students are ready for more of a challenge, they can download free software apps to create their own programs on a computer. Use Edison as-is, or add LEGO® bricks to build a bigger robot or a completely new invention. Learning by doing has never been easier or more affordable!
- Each Edison robot features a line tracking sensor, 2 light sensors (left and right), infrared receiver and transmitter, Piezo sounder, sound sensor, 2 variable-speed motors, 2 red LED lights (left and right), 3 control buttons and two 1-1/2" dia. wheels
