Kinematics - Robotik für Kinder


Kinematics Construction Kit 

Kinematics is a modular robotic construction kit, consisting of kinetic modules and adaptor blocks, which can be connected freely and without the use of cables. Kinematics is suitable for children from the age of 5 years and upwards, and with no computer skills being necessary, they may build interactive robots which have the ability to move.

How to Design a 4 LEGGED ROBOT – 81005

Microlecture – How to Engineer a Dog

The Legged Robotics Team at ETH Zurich’s Autonomous Systems Lab is doing research to build fast, versatile, and efficient quadrupedal robots. This movie illustrates some of the work that was done in the past years. Inspired by nature, the team built different types of electrically driven robots that can do various maneuvers from slow and careful climbing to very robust dynamic trotting.

How to Design a STAIR CLIMBING ROBOT 81004

The Stair Problem

A robot which moves freely in a building has to be adapted to an environment made for humans. On its way it may encounter small obstacles ( up to 4 cm of hight, e.g. door steps, sills  etc.) and stairs. These stairs often have nosings or ledges and sometimes open risers. The slope of indoor stairs can vary between  25° and 42°.


ROBOTEE LINKAGE 2.0 – Free Software

What is Linkage 2.0 ?

Linkage is computer aided design software used for quick prototyping of robotic linkage mechanisms. The number of operations needed to add a link and get it connected to other links in the mechanism has been minimized to the lowest number possible making this program ideal for “throwing together” a working machine. The mechanism is edited and animated in the same window allowing for quick analysis and modification while working on a design. It is simplistic for a CAD program but that is the intent.

Algodoo/Phun Internal Combustion Engine Mk. II

Robotic Simulation Software ALGODOO 81002

What is Algodoo ?

Algodoo is a unique 2D-simulation software with a physics engine from Algoryx Simulation AB. Algodoo is designed in a playful, cartoony manner, making it a perfect tool for creating interactive scenes. Explore physics, build amazing inventions, design cool games or experiment with Algodoo in your science classes. Algodoo encourages students and children’s own creativity, ability and motivation to construct knowledge while having fun. Making it as entertaining as it is educational. Algodoo is also a perfect aid for children to learn and practice physics at home.




Robotee is using RSF (Robotee Solution Framework) which is a Developing Structure for robot developers. RSF is a whole of solutions composed of models, principals and road maps developed in order to standardize quality in robot development processes.
