Iris Robot plus Dock
Connecting Iris to the dock enables you to use:
- Larger batteries with the Tamiya style connector to be used to drive motors. The Iris on its own is limited to powering the motors from a pair of AA batteries.
- Up to 6 PWM enabled 3-wire motors and/or servos, powered from the larger battery.
- Up to 255 digital motors via the Smart Motor Ports, powered from the large battery.
- Up to 6 sensor ports that can be used as digital inputs, digital outputs, or analog inputs.
This kit includes (1) Iris Robot and (1) Iris Dock.
The Iris Robot Dock allows you to continue programming the hand-held Iris robot while increasing it's capabilities. The Iris docking station can be used to add motors, sensors, and larger batteries to a bigger frame. In this set-up, the Iris robot becomes the brain of your robot. The Iris Robot is a fully capable self-contained robot. It is able to sense and react to its environment while communicating and moving, allowing all kinds of exploration as the perfect introduction to robotics. However, when you are ready to expand beyond the included sensors and motors you can use the Iris Dock for further investigation.
