nRad System for R&D Applications to be Showcased at nTact Booth 317.
Kickstarter : Each robot has three buttons for user interface and a 3-axis accelerometer. The brain behind all these features is the ATmega128RFA1 by Atmel, running at 16MHz. It integrates an 8-bit AVR microcontroller with an 802.15.4-compliant and ZigBee-capable radio transceiver operating in the 2.4GHz band. Out of the box, it communicates at 250kbps over the air, but with custom firmware you can enable speeds of up to 2Mbps for an 8X increase in throughput. Atmel AVR Microcontroller: Compatible with Arduino so you can re-flash with your own firmware using the on-board bootloader ZigBee-Capable Radio: Communicate wirelessly with an 802.15.4-compliant radio, create mesh networks, control and monitor remotely Multi-Color (RGB) LED: Select from a full spectrum of colors 3-Axis Accelerometer: Detect free-falls, bumps, tilt angles Buzzer: Play notes or complete tunes, give audio responses to inputs RJ11 (6P4C) Expansion Connector: Use a standard phone cable to connect our Bluetooth/breakout boards or your own electronics to your Linkbot's power and I2C bus 3x Buttons - Easily control Linkbot modes and functions or write custom functions for button presses Micro-USB Connector: Connect to a computer or charger with a standard Micro-USB cable Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery: Run your Linkbot for over 3 hours for most applications before having to charge High Torque:Weight-ratio Motors: Light-but-strong motors produce up to 100oz-in of torque Absolute Encoding: Precisely control and measure speeds and angles down to 0.5 degrees BaroboLink Software: Graphical interface lets you run programs, actuate motors and read sensors on your computer Polycarbonate Housing: Super-durable, drop-tested from second-story building (not recommended) so it can handle your demanding projects SnapConnector Mounting Surfaces: Quickly connect and remove wheels, connecting plates, grabbers, even multiple Linkbots; or connect your own accessories with standard screws

Low-cost robots are marching into Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
No matter how we look at it, robots are the logical choice at this time to explore the red planet and as we make robots more autonomous, they will be better at their assignments than humans.
The success of the AR.Drone and now the AR.Drone 2 has proven Henri's conviction that there is a large consumer market for this type of entertainment product and that there are other related high-potential markets on the horizon.
We build all our robots around a popular open source robotics development framework, called Robot Operating System (ROS). Since it is open source, it makes it quite simple to integrate with other open source initiatives, like Android.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
