|Pocket-Bot is a miniature low cost robot offering a standard
commercially available platform for virtually any miniature robotics application. This advanced robot is driven by a long lasting 9 volt alkaline battery, also powering an easily programmed on-board BASIC STAMP II microcontroller. The Pocket-Bot has built in shaft encoders, obstacle detect bumpers,independent left and right four wheel drive. A large prototyping area allows users to easily add custom circuitry
for specialized applications. Pocket-Bot has proven to be ideal for use in collective behavior research, AI studies and autonimous robotics experimenting.
Pocket-Bot was developed by Greg Kiskaden and Norm Reed at Diversified Enterprises to help advance the current state of the art in miniature robotics.
