ChartaCloud Announces Humanoid Robotics 'Makerspace' for Local Libraries and STEM Education

Libraries Can Now Become More Vital to Communities By Providing Member Access to a Humanoid Robotics and STEM Curricula

ChartaCloud Technologies LLC ("ChartaCloud") today announced that it has introduced 'NAO Makerspace' for local libraries. NAO Makerspace is provided as a package which enables local libraries to have on premise access to an advanced humanoid robot. The package utilizes the robotic industry's leading humanoid robot, the NAO Robot from Aldebaran Robotics and the software for programming and development provided as a site license for libraries. The software site license allows multiple visiting library members access for programming and developmental projects using a library computer or their own computers and when ready, utilizing the robot on location in the library to test their developments.

"We have experienced firsthand the significant response community libraries experience when they enable members to have access to a true robotics system via a library's ‘Makerspace'. The ‘Makerspace' movement in libraries is re-vitalizing the relevancy of libraries for the new era of technologies and we are committed to being a collaborative partner in advancing this movement for the robotics discipline," said Lauryn Schimmel, managing director, ChartaCloud.
The company stated that it also provides support and reference materials that can be used to seek funding and or grants for libraries seeking to add a NAO Makerspace to their local library. STEM curricula for teachers and students are also available.
"Local libraries can now serve as a powerfully collaborative community resource for local schools whereby large numbers of students, and even adults, can now have access to a true robotics experience. They can learn and explore the rapidly increasing requirement for robotics knowledge as part of their STEM learning curriculum or after school science projects. Having a robotics program locally available is an opportunity for students to become familiar with and adept at robotics. We all know that robotics is clearly going to be a significant dimension of our future economy and will have a definitive impact upon their careers," Schimmel concluded.

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
