- MOBOT® RoutePlanner software with extensive possibilities
Extensive development opportunities
MOBOT® eduRunner MW is a compact and extremely functional construction equipped with four directional wheel drives, with turn signals, HMI touch panel, safety switch, function buttons and 2D laser scanner with safety function. A laser terrain mapping system (LMS) is used for navigation, allowing autonomous operation.
The small dimensions and weight allow the robot to be used in various spaces. The robot housing has mounting plates to which the user can easily attach additional components, e.g. sensors. In the standard version MOBOT® eduRunner MW is equipped with one 2D scanner, optionally it can be equipped with two 2D scanners. In addition, it is possible to mount a camera to track lines and recognize QR codes placed on the floor, as well as an optional RFID reader. Mecanum wheel drive enables omnidirectional movement as well as precise robot control and positioning.
The machine programming is done with the MOBOT® RoutePlanner software, the same that is used in MOBOT® AGV robots working in industry. RoutePlanner is used to configure the robot, mapping the environment, and using the LMS laser navigation to program the mission that the robot is to perform independently.
The user, using the software, can create programs with the robot route and tasks to be performed (e.g. travel from a given location and measurement using a sensor located on the mounting plate), as well as manually control the robot using a computer keyboard and add route points, in which some action is to be carried out.
With the MOBOT® eduRunner MW mobile robot, the acquired knowledge can be quickly tested and verified in practice.
