fischertechnik is widely recognized as a pioneer in the area of robotics education. In fact, fischertechnik was the very first construction set manufacturer to provide students with the ability to both build and program their own robotic models, using the original, pre-"Macintosh" era Apple computers.
Learn About TRUE Industrial Robotics
This set provides you with instructions and materials for building four reality-based and fully functional industrial simulation robots, including a high-rack storage robot, 3-axis robot and 2 other grappler robots. Stable and sturdy fischertechnik aluminum channels are used in all models. The instructional activity booklet provides support in the form of background information, projects and programming tips. For programmers and designers from age 10. REQUIRES ROBO TX Controller, ROBO Pro software and either Acuu Set or Energy Set to perform all functions--each sold separately.
The fischertechnik Education Robotics: BT Beginner has over 380 pieces and the aid of sensors (phototransistors, push buttons) and actuators (XS motors, LED light barriers). Students can construct 12 easy-to understand models such as hand dryer, carousel, level crossing, conveyor belt with stamping machine and mobile caterpillar machine. The BT Smart Controller with 4 inputs for sensors and 2 outputs for motors and lamps features a USB port and a Bluetooth 4.0 port. The ROBO Pro Light software (available for download) makes it possible to program the models quickly, easily and in a way that is easy to follow. In addition, it is also possible to program the models using a tablet (initially Android) via an app. Comprehensive instructions are provided on the fischertechnik eLearning portal (fischertechnik-elearning.com) to support the student’s learning process and to explain the programming in an easy-to-follow way. The new BT Smart Controller will also work with Scratch. For the engineers and programmers of tomorrow.
Programming in elementary school
The new “Starter Set for micro:bit” by fischertechnik is a great method for teaching students in grade 3 and above the basic principles of programming with single board micro:bit computers. The set includes the fischertechnik parts needed for building three stationary models, and the new fischertechnik “micro:bit IO F5 adapter”. This adapter board features 8 outputs and 6 inputs. It can be used to control the three simple and easy to understand simulation models (a pedestrian light, an automated hand dryer, and an automated parking barrier) equipped with actuators and sensors using the “micro:bit” board. The additional teaching and activity materials, available for free download on the fischertechnik eLearning Portal, provide direction on getting started with the models, as well as performing various informative tasks.
The fischertechnik microbit adapter board has 8 outputs and 6 inputs.
The Pi-F5-HAT is a fischertechnik adapter for the Raspberry PI. The Pi-F5-HAT can be used to control DC and SERVO motors as well as digital and analogue sensors. With the programming language of your choice (Python, C, Scratch, ...), the Hat can be managed in such a way that no special libraries are required. It is possible to work simultaneously with 4 DC motors bidirectionally and 2 SERVO motors (microservo 4.8V / 6V). The number of motors that can work simultaneously depends on the power supply connected to the Pi-F5-HAT (e.g. fischertechnik power supply 9V / 2.5A). The Pi-F5-HAT and the Raspberry PI together can also be supplied with power by a 9V power supply unit or a fischertechnik battery (1800 mAh). The output voltage which supplies the DC motors corresponds approximately to the input supply voltage of the Pi-F5-HAT (9 V). the HAT also supports the operation of all fischertechnik DC motors (S motor, XS, XM, encoder motor).
The fischertechnik ROBO Pro Software is an easy to use programming software. Even beginners can quickly begin programming through the use of simple flow charts consisting of various software building blocks. The exchange of information can be done through variables and graphical connections as well. This allows the ROBO Pro program functions to be displayed in a clear and understandable manner.
