e.DO: an open-source Raspberry Pi robot of impeccable design
Created for research, education and industry, e.DO is a robotic arm driven by Raspberry Pi. It boasts a meticulous design in reinforced plastic and fiberglass developed by Comeau, a leader in industrial automation.
e.DO comes with 6 axes (3 big, 3 small). These multiple degrees of freedom allow a wide variety of movements, configurable at will thanks to its ROS pre-installed in an embedded microSD card. If you wish to enhance your e.DO experience, there is also a virtual development software you can download for free, as well as a comprehensive library of resources for developing your own programs.
You can equip it with any compatible accessory developed by its user (gripper, display, camera, etc.) to transform the robot into a fully customizable platform. And there is a vast community of amateur robotics engineers and developers just waiting to help you explore all your robot’s possibilities and enrich your adventure!
Uses for the e.DO robot
e.DO can be used in lots of different situations:
- In industry, e.DO can be configured for simple automated operations;
- Thanks to the Virtual e.DO tool, it is an ideal educational and research robot for developing robotics applications. Its open-source environment allows the creation of 3-D printed robotics accessories;
- e.DO can be programmed on Blocky, and therefore used by pupils new to robotics in a workshop. Children can control it easily by sending their commands using a TCP/IP interface, via an external controller (tablet or computer);
- It can also be used in public places as an assistance or demonstration robot.
