Multi-sensing mobile robot Khepera IV

Overview/Features

On June 1, 2011, we agreed to cross-sell the two companies' products with Swiss K-Team, which develops and sells small mobile robots for research and education, aiming to accelerate research in the field of car and robotics.

About K-Team
K-Team is a company established based on the results of the small mobile robot Khepera of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL).
High quality small mobile robot used in advanced research and education, including Khepera series widely used by researchers around the world.
We develop, manufacture and sell these robots.

Multi-sensing mobile robot Khepera IV
Khepera IV is the latest model of the compact autonomous mobile robot Khepera.
In the previous model Khepera III, an optional camera and wireless communication function were installed as standards, and the performance of the processor was greatly improved.
A compact body with a diameter of 140 mm is equipped with a camera, 12 infrared sensors, and 5 ultrasonic sensors.
The moving mechanism employs an independent two-wheel drive system, which allows long-term experiments of 4 to 7 hours.
Options such as laser range finder, indoor position measurement system, gripper can be installed. It can be used for a wide range of experiments including autonomous traveling, orbit planning, navigation, traffic simulation, group traveling, cooperative action, artificial intelligence and so on.
In the research and development of autonomous driving technology of mobile vehicles such as automobiles and construction machinery / agricultural machines, a process of simulating and verifying the constructed algorithm on a desk is required before running tests on actual vehicles. Khepera can perform advanced experiments using mobile robots efficiently in a space-saving manner such as desk and conference room, widely used for research in fields such as group traveling and cooperative action by multiple robots, and artificial intelligence We are proud of over 4,000 sales results worldwide.
Our company has developed autonomous driving vehicle development platform Vehicle RoboCarR series and K-Team's small mobile robot including Khepera.
We will continue to support many companies safely and easily to advance research and development of advanced driving support system (ADAS) and autonomous driving technology.

【Characteristics】
· Compact autonomous mobile robot with a diameter of 14 cm
. A comprehensive sensor group (camera, infrared, ultrasonic, microphone, speaker, acceleration, gyro, encoder)
· High precision movement mechanism (differential two wheels)
· High performance processor installed
. Wireless communication (WiFi, Bluetooth)

【Packaged Item】
Khepera IV environment recognition package
By integrating the indoor position detection system (StarGazer) installed in Khepera IV with the detection result of the laser range finder, this package enables more accurate self position estimation. Also, it is a product that can be tested for a long time by installing a battery kit that can replace the battery from the outside and swapping the batteries.
