Iris Robot Platform
The Iris Robot Platform is a low cost, mobile robot platform that can be programmed to operate on its own or in response to a wide variety of remote controls. It is an engaging introduction to microprocessor programming, mobile app development, as well as the potential expansion into web development. It is ideal for teaching programming: the robot is palm sized and can be operated and tested on the desk next to the computer. Engaging users with programming can be difficult at times, but through the mobile robotic platform, programming methods and techniques will keep the engagement higher for longer.
