The Robobo is a new concept of educational robot. It consists of a mobile base capable of transporting a Smartphone with which it connects wirelessly, and that executes all the functions of sensing and control. Its high technological level, which allows it to recognize objects, sounds or faces, provides a capacity for interaction with the student capable of turning robotics classes into sessions of high involvement and motivation for children and students of ESO and Bachelor. Robobo is accompanied by didactic guides that optimize and facilitate the work of the teacher in the school.

Smartphone

The Robobo is not an accessory for smartphones, but it transforms the smartphone into the center of processing and sensorization of the robot. Two high resolution cameras, a gyroscope, an accelerometer, a microphone, a GPS receiver, a speaker, a touch screen, WI-FI, 4G, Bluetooth, a state-of-the-art processor ... All these features become available When programming the robot.








Education

Educational robotics requires work platforms with enough appeal to engage the student and with sufficient capacity to maintain their attention. The Robobo turns the student's own smartphone into a technological learning tool of great potential. With it, one can deepen the different aspects of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) methodology at all levels, from primary to university, to students with special needs.








Robotics

One of the main problems of educational and research robots is that they are out of phase with great speed, given the high degree of progress of this field. With Robobo this problem disappears, because if a smartphone falls short of capabilities, it can be simply replaced with a more powerful one.
