KoreBot II

This board is designed for mobile robotics and it fits the needs of OEM developers of handheld devices: just at the size of a credit card, KoreBot II is a powerful embedded platform based on the gumstix Verdex PRO with an XScale processor.
 
KoreBot II provides and extends the same type of functionality and performance found in the latest generation consumer PDA devices to the industrial market.
 
Ready-to-run, extremely compact, but flexible for expansion and customization for customer application needs, KoreBot II provides the starting point for new designs and comes complete with all the hardware and software needed to start development including its Linux operating system.

KoreIO
KoreIO is a general Input and Output extension board for KoreBot.
 
It provides several interfaces to additional digital IO, digital power outputs, 10 bit analog inputs and 8 bits analog outputs. A CAN bus controller is also included to connect a KoreBot stack to any CAN devices.
 
A special PWM ouput mode is available to control standard Servo Motors. The KoreIO board is able to control up to 10 Servo Motors simultaneously, and to provide them with 5V power supply.
 
KoreIO board supports standalone usage using a serial or I2C interface and it can be included in a    KB-250 stack as well. The KB-250 interface is an open standard interface to expand the functionality of an existing ARM base platform in a easy and fast way.
 
Besides using a full line of off-the-shelf KB-250 modules, developpers can also design their own modules. KB-250 modules can be used singularly or stacked together to give the needed functionality.
A set of high level commands is provided, to easily interface KoreBot programs or for external operations. The KoreIO is fully supported by the LibKoreBot API

KoreIOLE Extension Board
The KoreBot and the newer KoreBotLE are compatible with either product's extension boards and accessories.
 
The KoreIOLE supports the KB-250 interface. The KB-250 interface is an open standard interface to expand the functionality of an existing KoreBot base platform in a easy and fast way. Besides using a full line of off-the-shelf KB-250 modules, developers can also design their own modules. KB-250 modules can be used singularly or stacked together to give the needed functionality. Several KoreIOLE boards can be placed on one stack to allow control of a large number of I/O.
 
A set of high level commands is provided, to easily interface KoreBot programs or for external operations.

KoreUSBCam: USB Camera Extension Board

USB Camera compatible with the Korebot and Khepera III robots.

KoreMotorLE
KoreMotorLE provides two DC motor channels. It can drive up to two DC motors using separate PID's to control position, and speed. The PID control loop is implemented with 32-bit calculations, with a 32-bit position value and a 16-bit velocity value. Current measurement feedback is also available to detect torque and stall conditions for the motors.
 
KoreMotorLE does not support standalone operation. The board must be connected to a KorebotII using the KB-250 stack.
 
The KoreMotorLE supports the KB-250 interface. The KB-250 interface is an open standard interface to expand the functionality of an existing KoreBot base platform in a easy and fast way. Besides using a full line of off-the-shelf KB-250 modules, developers can also design their own modules. KB-250 modules can be used singularly or stacked together to give the needed functionality. Several KoreMotorLE boards can be placed on one stack to allow control of a large number of motors. 
Features:
Control for 2 DC motors with incremental encoders.
Motor requirements:
5-28V
25W max
2.5A max continuous
5.0A max peak
Control:
open or closed loop regulation
position, speed and current (torque) control
adjustable sampling frequency from 10Hz up to 12kHz
One 2A fuse per motor and one common 5A fuse
K-Net Interface (for communication with Khepera and Koala)
KB-250 Male Interface for communication with Korebot
KB-250 Female Interface for stacking
 
Includes:
KoreMotorLE board
KoreWifi
KoreWifi is an additional extension for the embedded PC KoreBot II board angling to add wireless communication to the Khepera III programmable robot. KoreWifi is a CompactFlash Type I card, compliant with the IEEE 802.11 B/G standard.
 
The KoreWifi card has to be plugged into the available CompactFlast port of the embedded PC board KoreBot II for Khepera III.
 
This module has all the necessary drivers to work with the Linux distribution of the Khepera III robot. 

KoreWifi Technical Specifications:

  • Card type: CompactFlash Type I
  • Wireless Networks: IEEE 802.11 B/G
  • Voltage: 3.3V
  • Antenna: internal
KoreBase
The KoreBase board can be used to connect your application (computer, uC, USB camera, etc...) to a KoreBot. This extension provides easier connection to the different ports of KoreBot. Three serial ports, an USB slave port, two USB hosts, 16 GPIOs, the I2C bus and two PWM outputs are provided by this extension. 
 

Laser Range finder (LRF)

The LRF is a turret that can be plugged on the robot or used only with a KorebotII. It requires the KoreBotII.

It is used to do navigation, specially for mapping and localization. 

The turret is available with or without the LRF module (reference: model URG-04LX-UG01 from Hokuyo company ).
