Minirobots is a Spanish company, which is working to launch a new product, the Mowayduino robot. To do this they have launched a campaign in Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. Minirobots is a Start up but with a very clear idea about what they want to offer society.Their aim is to develop resources that bring technology to society and make programming accessible to everyone.
mOwayduino is a free hardware robot based on Arduino technology and programmable in different languages, such as Arduino IDE, Scratch, Python and Java. It is a product for all ages, a product which familiarise people with the world of programming and apply this to a real environment and would also develop the creativity and the sense of logic and imagination
mOwayduino is an already built platform which includes everything you need to start
Mowayduino robot working Features:
- Arduino Leonardo based robot (ATmega 32u4)
- 4 anti-collision infrared sensors
- 1 directional light intensity sensor
- 2 opto-reflective infrared sensors for the floor
- Bicoloured luminous indicator on top
- Frontal LED
- Red rear LEDs
- 3-axis accelerometer
- RF communication based on nRF24L01+
- LiPo battery rechargable via USB
- 2 hours without external power supply
- Prepared for collaborative robotics
- Expansion modules
It is a compact design which you can extend adding infinite number of accessories. From a WI-FI connection to any circuit designed by you.
Computer Vision System
mOwayduino Camera is a vision system that connects to mOwayduino’s expansion slot. You will be able to see real-time images captured by the camera on the PC screen and create computer vision applications: recognising shapes and colours, control the robot with visual codes, make mOwayduino find objects, etc.
Wi-Fi. Internet of things
This module adds an internet connection to mOwayduino and provides it with a client/web server. You will be able to develop a number of different applications:
- Control mOwayduino from your mobile devices, tablets, telephones etc.
- Consult social networks and any Internet website
- Send e-mails
- Control mOwayduino’s movements via its webserver
- And any more…
Equip mOwayduino with even more options. Personalised electronic circuits can be created and added to let the imagination soar with mOwayduino.
SDK for developers
mOwayduino is a completely open source platform which allows you to interact with any external device. You can control mOwayduino from any platform, using its WIFI capabilities, computer vision system, and radio-frequency.Thanks to its WIFI connexion you can communicate mOwayduino with your mobiles and tablets. Also, you can develop your own mobile applications.The Programming is the present and the future and with mOwayduino Minirobots wants to make programming accessible to everyone and take mOwayduino worldwide.
