About this product


Comes with the CM-530 controller and AX-12A servos
Convenient, safe and expandable
All-round robot kit for education/robot competitions/entertainment
Can build various types of robot such as spider, dinosaur, and humanoid

The Robotis Bioloid Premium Robot Kit includes everything to build a robot for education, robot competitions or simply entertainment.  The ROBOTIS BIOLOID CM-530 Controller  along with the included software RoboPlus allows you to easily use the 'building-block' style programming but with the logic of the "C" language.  The 18 Dynamixel AX-12A Smart Serial Servo are powered by a 11.1v LiPo battery which provides them with enough operation voltage for strong and quick mouvements.

BIOLOID Premium Robot Kit

Bioloid includes gyro sensor, DMS, and multi-channel wireless expendable remote controller.

Educational activities using various applications

The Bioloid Premium was designed to be compltety modular.  There are a total of 29 different robot examples ranging from wheeled robots, hexapods, quadrupeds, robot arms, and multiple bipeds including the Bioloid Premium Humanoid variants.  Users can either build the provided exemple and use the included sample codes or build their own custom robot.

Excellent walking humanoid (Self-Adjusts posture while walking)
Various sensors including Gyro, DMS and IR
RC-100A(Remote Controller) is included (IR-default, Zigbee/Bluetooth-optional)
C-style programming & motion teaching with RoboPlus S/W (USB interface included)

This is a great product for remote control robot competitions. For autonomous operation, you need a different controller.

Review by Griffin

This really is a great robot for remote operation. I assembled the Type A robot. I had to back track a few times because I did not follow the pictures in the diagrams carefully. They have pictures with things you should not do, and since there are no words with the picture, you must spend some time figuring out what feature is in the wrong position. For the impatient like myself, you end up doing a few things over. There are a lot of screws. At least 8 for each of the 18 servos. Once assembled, there are tools in the software to debug what is working and what is not. Be very careful to get the right servo ID in the proper part of the assembly. For the Type A robot, there is an extensive motion library and a very extensive tool for creating your own motions. Expect to spend quite a bit of time with both before you understand how much work they put into these programs and tools. In addition to the initial program and motion files, there are two others, one for fighting robots and another for soccer.

Some Issues:
Plastic feet are slippery on smooth surfaces, I tried different types of soles including some carpet stay tape. Too much grip does not work. I settled with the rough side of poster board stuck on with double-sided tape. The robot is only stable on flat hard surfaces.

Although there is a gyro system that is active during walking, the coefficients need tweaking. I changed the software so I could turn it off and on. I usually had it off.

If you are interested in autonomous operation or adding more complicated sensors like a compass or vision system, you need to use a different controller. The controller in this robot is designed to execute motions automatically. You can tell the robot to start walking, and the motion engine will do the rest. There are also provisions for having exit motions from within a more complex action like walking, so depending on which foot is forward, you can execute just the right set of moves to come to a standing stop seamlessly. The controller is not designed for a lot of decision making and many sensors. There are 6 sensor ports. two of which are used for the gyros. I tried to put a second processor on this robot that was intended to support advanced sensors and systems and to command the motion system through the port used by the remote control. I failed. First, the communications would be single number commands back and forth. I could live with that. Then I discovered that the baud rate into the controller was 57600 and the return was 1200. This would require two separate serial ports. My test case was an Arduino processor talking to a I2C compass, sending data to the serial monitor, and talking with the robot using SoftwareSerial. It could not keep up. As a result, I have reconfigured the robot into a hexapod and am in the process of replacing the Robotis CM-530 with a different Arduino based processor. A autonomous robot requires more than one processor or at least one that does multiple threads. The CM-530 would be an excellent choice for the motion machine if the remote interface was a standard full duplex serial port instead of the custom interface that is there now.
