The robot kit NIBO 2 is a free programmable mobile robot. As an autonomous robot it is able to drive independently into any direction. By its multiple sensors NIBO 2 can avoid obstacles and follow lines on the floor. [➔Videos]
The kit was designed for young people to get technical knowledge. Particularly they can get experience in the fields robotics, microcontroller programming and measuring and control engineering. In order not to make life too much difficult for beginners the microcontrollers are ample dimensioned. Thus there is much space for programming.
The robot is controlled by two microcontrollers: an Atmel ATmega128 as main-controller and an Atmel ATmega88 as co-controller. The robot can be programmed with every usual Atmel programming adapter. In particular the programming adapter UCOM-IR2-X by nicai-systems is suitable for NIBO 2.
Fun with assembling
The circuit boards are delivered with placed SMD (surface mounted devices) components, so that the customer only has to solder the THT (through hole technology) components. This allows persons with fundamental soldering knowledge to finish the boards.
The complex and time-critical modules motor-control and distance-measuring are completely implemented on the ATmega88 microcontroller. The firmware for this controller is provided by nicai-systems, it can easy be customized to the respective requirements of the user. Therefore the beginner does not need special knowledge in measuring and control engineering and there is no need to care about time-critical program sections.
Online Development Tool: Roboter.CC
The ↷ Open-Source platform Roboter.CC provides an online-compiler, ready-to-use program files for testing, online tutorials and a web-forum. It is quite easy to start with the programming of NIBO 2:
Needed for Operation:
- Computer (32/64 bit) with Linux, Windows 7, Vista or XP
- Programming device for Atmel AVR controller (e.g. UCOM-IR2)
- 8 Mignon rechargeable batteries (AA)
