RB1000 (kit)

You set up your own „humanoid“ robot!

Order No. R1000

The kit contains all the components and small items required to build and operate the robot. No particular computer knowledge is required in order to handle and program the robot, the movement sequences will be programmed by using a graphic supported software. Excellent mobility is provided by its 19 joints: 12 leg joints, 6 arm joints and 1 neck joint. The “humanoid” is able to operate two more additional servos, also two gyro sensors to maintaining the balance by using the software. An integral dual-axis attitude sensor mounted on the CPU board allows to start programs for stand up from front and back position.

This high-quality model is assembled from a set of robust components to produce a modern, attractive machine. More than twenty movements will be delivered with the robot, it is possible to get a selection of these sequences from our homepage. You can also upload your great movements for other RB1000 users! These functions enable the robot to carry out basic movements directly, such as walking and turning, as well as special functions including hand-waving and various poses, without requiring any programming. With these movement sequences it´s very easy to begin your first own motion.

The robot can also be controlled using an optional Graupner/JR 40 MHz stick transmitter with at least six functions, together with suitable receiver and accessories.

- RobovieMaker -

This software is included in the kit, and provides an ultra-simple means of programming the robot to carry out a vast range of movement sequences, and of determining how it is to respond to sensor feedback information. The robot communicates with the PC via the integral RS232 interface.
