ROBOTICS - a fascinating new world which you can now experience at first-hand. With the help of detailed step-by-step instructions you assemble the kit components to produce a working humanoid robot of the kind only usually found in universities and research institutes. The set includes all the software required to allow you to bring the robot to purposeful life - even if you are a complete beginner. Simple to get started • ROBONOVA-1 means: robotics for the beginner. • The robot is great fun - and the fun starts immediately • No special computer knowledge or programming experience required • Catch & Play - move the robot and click: and you have produced the first movement! Carefully matched • The kit contains all the components required to operate this high-tech robot • Carefully matched mechanical systems and software Expandable • ROBONOVA-1 means: robotics for the expert. • The micro-controller features ample performance reserves for a wide range of expansions • The mechanical system is of modular construction, and can be extended to cater for future applications • ROBONOVA-1 can be considered as an open development platform Robust and attractive • Eloxided aluminium brackets • Digital servos with Karbonite gearbox • Professional “look”!
ROBONOVA-1 really is a “hard case”. Specially treated eloxided aluminium parts provide the essential strength in the connecting elements, and give the ROBONOVA1 its characteristic high-quality appearance. The plastic components are made of an extremely high-quality material which provides all the robustness required for daily use. ROBONOVA-1 is capable of squaring up to any challenge, as its design and layout are based on the development team’s many years of experience in robotics competitions.
The robot’s “muscles” take the form of servos, developed specifically for robotics by HiTEC: a world leader in servo manufacture. They offer the familiar strengths of HiTEC servos: • Torque • Transit speed • Accuracy • Durability and have been modified to cope with the special requirements of robotics applications: • 180-degree angular travel • Innovative case design • Motion feedback function • Data feedback function: current, voltage
Specification: HSR-8498HB servo Dimensions: 40 x 20 x 47 mm Weight: 55 g Operating voltage: 6 - 7.4 V Max. rotational angle: 180 degrees Torque: 7.4 kg / cm at 6.0 Volts (9.0 kg / cm at 7.4 Volts) Transit speed for 60 degrees: 0.2 sec. at 6 Volts (0.18 sec. at 7.4 Volts)
HMI (HiTEC Multi-protocol Interface) • Data feedback: current, voltage, position • Optional: servo parameter adjustment (requires servo programmer kit) Daisy-chain serial interface for up to 128 servos • PWM interface (RC standard)
Power supply: the ROBONOVA-1 is operated from the 6 Volt / 1000 mAh NiMH battery supplied; a suitable battery charger can also act as buffer when the robot is operating. On a single battery charge the ROBONOVA-1 can be operated for around 60 minutes; the actual operating time varies according to the complexity of the movement processes. Specification: Robonova-1 Dimensions: 310 x 180 x 90 mm Weight with standard battery: approx. 1.3 kg Number of servos: 16
The software included in the set enables anyone to develop the movement processes of the ROBONOVA-1, and define its response to sensor events, using a PC running the Windows operating system (Windows 98 or later). Catch & Play makes robot programming easy to understand. For example, you move the robot arm to the start-point and endpoint of a “simple action” (e.g. raise arm), and confirm the start position and end position with a mouse-click. The robot then carries out the whole movement process. Robo-Script and Robo-Remocon: ideal for the beginner. The computer screen displays sliders for every individual servo (joint). Moving the sliders changes the position of the servos. Simple movements can then be assembled to produce complex movements simply by clicking the mouse. REMOCON provides a graphical user interface for calling up these movements. Robo-Basic: with Catch & Play function, convenient programming for complex tasks for advanced operators. Robo-Basic is a dialect of Basic optimised for programming the ROBONOVA-1. It enables you to create complex applications designed to accomplish your own individual tasks:
• Independent development environment including Editor and Compiler • Robo-Basic includes commands for: • Synchronous servo movements • Servo point-to-point movements • Servo motion feedback ROBONOVA-1 An open platform for the expert The hardware offers plenty of scope for expansion to cope with future applications.
The Control Board
The brain and heart of the ROBONOVA-1 is the well-known ATMEL ATMega 128 processor, its internal memory supplemented by a 64K*8 EEPROM as storage for Robo-Script and Robo-Basic programs. Specification: MR C-3024 • Controller: Atmel ATMega 128 • Dimensions approx. 61 x 50.5 mm • Operating voltage range: 6 - 8 Volts • I/O ports: * 40 ports on post connectors, of which 24 are servo ports and 8 A/D converters * RS232 interface * Signal indicators • Supplementary memory: 64K*8 EEPROM The ROBONOVA-1 can be fitted with an Infra-Red receiver and controlled using a standard IR remote control handset. The processor in the ROBONOVA-1 offers a vast range of future expansion capacity; the full possibilities have yet to be exploited.
