Spartan puts affordable robot into the hands of students from middle school through college level
MIAMI, FL — (January 8, 2016) — Modern Robotics Inc. today provided an exciting glimpse into the future of collaborative robotics with the introduction of Spartan™, a robotics base kit that allows users to build and program a very capable and complete robot. The Spartan Robot kit includes the powerful Core Spartan Controller, two Optical Distance Sensors, one Touch Sensor, one Program Control Button, two motors, two wheels with rubber tread, a caster wheel, rechargeable battery, battery charger, building components, and the tools to put it all together. The programming tools, specialized Spartan programming libraries and software needed to create an Arduino development environment can be found at Modernroboticsinc.com/spartan.
With a mission to get an affordable robot into the hands of students and teach programming concepts from middle school through the university level, Modern Robotics gave Spartan a Core Controller with 26 motor, servo and sensor ports, allowing programs to interact with the robot’s environment. Coupled with the versatile MATRIX building system, Spartan can complete endless challenges.
Spartan is a significant addition to the company’s smart, collaborative product line, which features a wide collection of electronic products used for educational and hobby robotics.
Modern Robotics fuses emerging hardware technology with the latest innovations in robotics, allowing students, hobbyists and those curious about science and technology the opportunity to build and operate their own robotics systems. The product line is suitable for both competition and educational robotic programs.
“Spartan offers an exciting platform for both educators and students to learn about robotics; it also helps motivate kids to learn math, science and technology integrated with engineering,” said Stephen Barker, CEO and co-founder of Modern Robotics, Inc.
Spartan retails for $195 at ModernRoboticsInc.com. Suggested age for Spartan is 14 and up.
