An Old Friend Returns, the 3Pi+ STEM Mobile Robot Gets a Facelift
The Polulu 3Pi+ returns with new relevance to todays STEM educators and mobile robot researchers.
Active Robots supplied the original 3pi 12 years ago. This new upgraded version looks amazing with its new protective full wrap-around bumper to protect the electronics from collisions. The 3Pi+ will undoubtedly prove very popular with customers, and includes a preloaded demo programme to get you started and you have access to the Pololu3piPlus32U4 Arduino library
This little high performance robot is packed with features that make it ideal for learning and research in today’s robot landscape. The mobile platform is based on the Arduino compatible ATmega32U4 MCU and is super fast. It now has a body for protection but the battery is fully accessible. The robots have built in line and bump sensors, 3 axis accelerometers, magnetometer, reflectance meters and gyro, along with dual encoders for closed loop speed control and position sensing. This robot is well suited for coordinated swarm robots and use on robotics courses.
- Low cost complete mobile robot platform
- Ideal for STEM
- Higher Education research such as swarm robotics
- Huge capability in the palm of your hand
For interaction with the robot, there are left and right bump sensors, three push buttons, an LCD screen, buzzer, indicator LEDs and USB connectivity, allowing users to program feedback and countless interactions. The first units of the Standard and the Turtle versions are now in stock. Videos will be posted here soon, so check back soon to see the Polulu 3Pi+ in action.
The 3Pi+ Mobile Robot is 97L x 96W x 36H mm, weighs 100g without batteries, and comes fully assembled. You can find out more here: www.active-robots.com/3Pi+
