Festo, the company behind the Aquajelly and Airjelly robots, now offers a mobile robotic learning platform called Robotino.
The complete Robotino packages includes the following:
- Omnidirectional drive
- Web camera
- Nine infrared distance sensors
- Analogue inductive sensor
- Two optical sensors
Two 12 V lead-gel rechargeable non-spillable electric storage batteries are also included along with a charging device. A charging station is available on request, allowing Robotino to recharge automatically by itself.
No word on actual price, but they did recently offer participants in the German Open Robocup a special deal for €2,900, or roughly $3,700.00.
