Roamer the Educational Robot for Schools

Roamer is an educational robot aimed at helping teach Pre-School to Year 12 (PK-12). It achieves this flexibility because it is a modular system that you can put together in different ways to suit your specific needs.  With 30 years of experience of designing robots for schools the Roamer has been designed:

  1. Specifically for schools, classrooms and education
  2. To be robust and survive the normal wear and tear of regular use
  3. To integrate and work with the type of resources normally found in schools
  4. As a future proof platform that can adapt and work with new technologies

Novel Features – New Activities

Traditionally floor robots like Turtle and Classic Roamer moved, turned and performed at one speed.  The addition of Speed and Drive modes provide the oppotunity for new types of educational challenge

Moving Speed

Default Speed

The standard speed of Roamer is 25 cm/sec. 

Top Speed

Roamer’s top speed is half a metre per second.

Change the Default

You can change this default with RoamerWorld software. 

Programmable Speed

The Infant K-1 has 3 speeds, slow, default (medium) and fast.  The Primary and Junior Roamers have 10 speed settings: 5. 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 cm/sec.

Special Options

You can use Roamer’s User Keys to provide Roamer with a special speed functions.

Turning Speed

Default Speed

The standard speed of Roamer is 90 degrees/sec. 

Top Speed

Roamer’s top speed is half a turn (180o) per second

Change the Default

You can change this default with RoamerWorld software. 

Programmable Speed

The Infant K-1 has 3 speeds, slow, default (medium) and fast.  The Primary and Junior Roamers have 10 speed settings: 18. 36, 54, 72, 90, 108, 136, 144, 162 and 180 degrees/sec. (steps of 10% of top speed).

Special Options

You can use Roamer’s User Keys to provide Roamer with a special speed functions.

Drive Mode

The Drive Mode changes the performance of Roamer’s Motors.  There are four modes:

Standard (Default) Mode

This provides you with the best alround performance, particularly economising on the battery power.

Speed Mode

This maximises the speed of Roamer by providing it with the fastest possible acceleration. 

Power Mode

This maximises Roamer’s pulling, pushing and load carrying capability.

Accuracy Mode

Even in Standard Mode Roamer is the most precise Turtle type robot on the market.  The Accuracy mode gives you the extra precision required for some activities.
