Erle Robotics, the next generation of open source robotic brains

Erle Robotics, the next generation of open source robotic brains


 

The Spanish company Erle announced the release of Erle-Brain 2, a streamlined and enhanced sibling of the first Erle-Brain offering a more powerful product, yet at a lower price.

Erle-Brain 2 supports APM and other Dronecode Foundation tools, and enables customers to create tailored, intelligent copters, planes, rovers, boats and spiders.
It is multi-platform, embracing the communities of Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoneBlack and Odroid, thus allowing developers to choose their favoured platform.

Additional features include USB, Ethernet, I2C, UART and HDMI, camera, gravity sensor, gyroscope, digital compass, pressure sensor and temperature sensors.
The Linux computer is programmable under the most flexible frameworks for robot software: ROS and Indigo.

With connection to the robot Appstore, created by Erle in partnership with Canonical, developers can also access a market place to design and sell robot “behaviours”.

“We are excited to see how people will use the Erle-Brain 2. Its predecessor has already been used to deliver defibrillators to heart attack victims, provide WiFi networks in hard-to-reach zones and to monitor volatile chemicals in volcanoes. Our main markets, however, remain schools and universities where our robotics future is being shaped,” said Carlos Uraga, CEO of Erle Robotics.
Available online at the Erle Store for €199.
