The XRP Robotics Platform is a hands-on, comprehensive robotics platform and includes everything needed to build and program a robot to autonomously perform beginning through advanced tasks - building the foundation for innovative thinking, science, engineering, and problem solving. The platform provides:
This kit is the hardware arm of the XRP Platform. At the heart of it is the XRP Controller Board, which includes an on-board Raspberry Pi® Pico W; low-power accelerometer + gyroscope 6-DoF IMU (LSM6DSOX from STMicroelectronics®); a Qwiic® connector for easy integration of sensors and accessories; two dual-channel motor drivers for four motors total; two servo headers; a momentary button switch; and more. The kit also includes an ultrasonic rangefinder, line follower, two motors with encoders, servo motor, Qwiic cables, injection molded chassis and plastic parts, two wheels, two casters, and battery holder. The robot is normally powered by 4xAA batteries (not included in kit), but any supply up to 11V is supported via the barrel connector.
The online modules, which serve as a comprehensive Introduction to Robotics, were developed as part of the WPI OpenSTEM Initiative. The modules and progression of content have been tested with hundreds of users and have been refined to the current form, still in beta. The content offers a fun, engaging experience that aligns with national technology standards and engages users in solving real-world robotics challenges.
This kit and the online tools are in beta form – by using the kits now, you will not only be an early adopter, but you will be able to provide feedback to make the platform better.
