  • GAOKI X-GAME V4 Action Camera
    Excellent product
    Review by JV
    This camera has a very good quality.
    Tested with a 32GB memory card and I was able to get lots of good HD videos with good stability to shaking.

  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    Excellent price/value ratio
    Review by Aron
    It's a very nice product, robust and reliable, also very precise. I'm really happy with it. The only reason for not giving a 5-star rating is the sound of friction that it makes during operation. It doesn't seem to do any harm, but I'm afraid that sooner or later some abrasion might appear. But that doesn't bother me too much, because for this price I can replace it twice before hitting the price range of the next option :) So, it's totally recommended.

  • 6 DOF Gyro, Accelerometer IMU - MPU6050
    Nice product
    Review by Adrien
    Easy to use. This IMU coupled with Kalman filter is a good way to stabilize an UAV for instance !

  • Dynamixel Sensor Module AX-S1
    Excellent product if you need to expand your robots senses
    Review by Ronald
    Ordered this product to give my robot more sensory capability after exhausting all 6 ports on my cm530. The fact that it chains to the servos yet is able to give my robot 3 more IR sensors is awesome
    Thumbs up

    Review by Jarrod
    This is a great sensor and with some of the sample code from Ardunio it's super easy to setup and use.

Ecovacs Deebot D77 Unboxing

Posted on May 30, 2014

By Julie Gendron & filled under Consumer Robotics, Domestic, Vacuum.

The Deebot D77 system will change everything you thought you knew about robotic vacuums. It is the first 3-in-1 robot in it’s class to empty itself automatically when it returns to it’s docking station. You therefore no longer need to empty the dust bin after every few cleaning cycles. The canister is much larger and [...]

New Hokuyo Laser Range Finders for Robotics

Posted on May 06, 2014

By Jeffrey Arcand & filled under Industrial, Industry, Research.

The Hokuyo scanning sensors are great 2D obstacle scanners. They can be used in fixed locations to detect if an object enters its scan area, and can be used on mobile platforms that need to do obstacle detection and avoidance as they move. There are two categories of sensors: outdoor sensors that have ranges up [...]
