The e-puck2 is the latest addition to the e-puck robot family, developed by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and GCtronic. It is a small differential-wheeled mobile robot designed for education and research. It has the same shape as its predecessor with great improvements and new features, such as: A WiFi/BLE module, a micro USB connector for communication and charging, a more powerful microcontroller, more memory, a Time-of-Flight distance sensor, and an inertial measurement unit with a magnetometer. An on-board debugger/programmer is also included.
The e-puck2 is based on an open hardware concept, where all documents are distributed and submitted to a license allowing everyone to freely use and contribute to the project.
Compatibility: the e-puck2 is fully compatible with the e-puck. All the extensions remain the same.
Applications: the e-puck2 covers a wide range of educational and research activities: teaching, collective robotics, evolutionary robotics...
Simulation software: the e-puck2 is integrated in the Webots simulation software for easy programming, simulation and remote control of the real robot. See Webots User Guide: e-puck
User friendly: the e-puck2 is small (7 cm) and easy to setup on a table top next to a computer.
Affordable: the competitive price allows the use of the e-puck2 for education and collective robotics research.
