The Edison Robot V3 – EdPack1 is a meticulously designed product for individuals who have a keen interest in the fields of coding and robotics. The EdPack1 comprises of an Edison V3 robot, which is equipped with an internal rechargeable battery.

The Edison robot’s different sensors can detect different things including sound, visible light and infrared light. Edison can be programmed to react to the different inputs it detects using any of the Edison programming languages. The Edison robot’s sensors, along with its motors, buttons, lights and removable wheels, offer students an incredible range of ways to interact with the robots and provide the base for meaningful and interactive 21st Century education.

The robot also includes an attached USB cable that serves dual purposes - programming and charging the device. The robot is lightweight, weighing only 0.162 g, and has compact dimensions of 8 x 4.3 x 7.8 cm, making it easy to handle and operate.

Sound Sensor / Buzzer

Using the sound sensor, you can program the robot to detect and react to loud sounds. This functionality enables the ‘clap-controlled’ driving barcode program and is a great option for teaching conditionals and branching with coding.

The buzzer can be used to play music, making it an ideal way of bringing the arts into STEAM projects using Edison robots.

Lights

The LED lights can be programmed to turn on or off independently, offering additional flexibility for output options. The red LEDs are ideal for use in programs as a visible signal that something has occurred, such as a sensor-driven event triggering, and allow students to add variety to their programs.

Motors

Edison robots have two motors that each control a powered socket, one on the right side of the robot and one on the left. The motors can be programmed to run together or individually. The independent control of the motors allows Edison to move in different ways, including turning specified angles or pivoting on one spot.

Removable wheels

Both of the robot’s wheels can be detached from the robot. The wheels connect to Edison using their built-in axles which sit inside the powered sockets on either side of the robot. Swapping wheels for axles on Edison opens up all sorts of things to do with the robots.

Buttons

There are three buttons on an Edison robot: the play (triangle) button, the stop (square) button and the record (round) button. As their names suggest, the buttons are used to program the robot and then to run and stop those programs in Edison.

Light sensor

Edison’s light sensors are the sensors that let Edison detect and measure visible light. Edison’s main light sensors are on the top of the robot, one on the right and one on the left of the robot. (Edison also has a third light sensor, which is underneath the robot and works as part of the line tracking sensor.)

The light sensors can be used to detect visible light, which is the portion of the light spectrum that people can see, coming from any source near Edison. The sensors measure the detected light and store the value as a light reading. The more light that is detected, the higher the light reading.

Obstacle Detector

The robot’s infrared light sensor is the sensor that lets Edison emit and detect infrared light. The sensor is made up of three parts all located across the front of Edison: two infrared LEDs (one on the right and one on the left) plus an infrared receiver in the middle. 

Because the IR light sensor can be used to detect both the presence and relative location (on the right, on the left or straight ahead) of obstacles, it is ideal for teaching conditionals and branching. Obstacle detection can also be used in creative, autonomous programs, such as getting the robot to complete a 3D maze.

Line Sensor

The line tracking sensor is the sensor that lets Edison see the difference between dark and light surfaces. The sensor is located on the bottom of Edison, near the power switch. The line tracking sensor is made up of two parts: a red LED and a visible light sensor.

Remote Control Receiver

The Edison robot’s infrared light sensor is located on the top of the robot, right in the center at the front. This sensor allows Edison to detect infrared light, including IR sent from remote controls, such as TV or DVD remotes. The robot can then be controlled like a remote-control car!

Edison can also use the IR light sensor to detect remote commands and react in custom-programmed ways. You can create programs for Edison to tell the robot what to do when it receives specific remote-control commands.

IR Messenger

Edison robots can use infrared light to send and receive messages to other Edison robots. One robot can send out an infrared message using its two IR LEDs which another robot’s IR receiver can detect. The receiving robot can be programmed to react to specific IR messages. Using IR messaging with multiple robots allows students to collaborate and create interactive, multi-stagged projects and programs using Edison.
