OverviewThe e-puck mini mobile robot was originally developed at the EPFL for teaching purposes by the designers of the successful Khepera robot. The e-puck hardware and software is fully open source, providing low level access to every electronic device and offering unlimited extension possibilities. The basic e-puck robot contains a large number of sensors and actuators, including two stepper motor wheels, 9 LEDs, a speaker, 8 infra-red sensors, 3 microphones, a VGA camera, a 3D accelerometer, a remote control IR receiver, a 16 position switch and a Bluetooth interface. The official e-puck community web site is www.e-puck.org.
Neat design: the simple mechanical structure, electronics design and software of e-puck is an example of a clean and modern system.
Flexibility: e-puck covers a wide range of educational activities, offering many possibilities with its sensors, processing power and extensions.
Simulation software: e-puck is integrated in the Webots simulation software for easy programming, simulation and remote control of real robot.
User friendly: e-puck is small and easy to setup on a table top next to a computer. It doesn't need any cable and provides optimal working comfort.
Robustness and maintenance: e-puck resists to student use and is simple to repair.
Affordable: the price tag of e-puck is friendly to university budgets.
