Now, the same people have come up with easy-to-use DIY robot kits. Having been involved in a lot of work in Mobile Robotics for the duct cleaning industry and creating experimental drones, the company decided to move into Educational Robotics. A team of 13 people works on generating new concepts and ideas which can help teach kids about robotics.

Mobile Robotic Arm

This basic-level robot helps to gauge robotics better. It is a manually controlled, wired robot used for mobile lifting purposes. It has an arm, which is lifted with the help of a gearbox. The gearbox is mainly a mechanical assembly, which uses different types of gears, namely Worm gear, Spur gear, etc.
Age group
10 to 15-year-olds

X-BOT


This is designed to follow a black or white line on the ground, without getting off the line too much. The robot has four sensors installed underneath the front part of the body, and two DC motors drive wheels moving forward. These robots teach basic construction and electronics techniques.
Age group
12 to 18-year-olds
Cost Rs 1, 940

The Robo Dumpster

This is also a basic level robot, and is used for dumping purposes and therefore, it has a bucket, which is lifted with the help of a gearbox.
Age group
8 to 12-year-olds
Cost Rs 2,860

SOLAR BUG v1.0 Robot

This is an autonomous robot with crawling locomotion, which always follows light. The name emerged from the original prototype being powered by a solar panel. It utilises tiny, high-efficiency motors, in combination with elegant circuitry to make an active solar powered robot, capable of covering a metre’s (3.3 feet) distance in under a minute! It is powered entirely by solar energy and has light-sensing directional optics (eyes), and a pair of obstacle-avoidance sensors.
