e.DO The Robot

e.DO e.DO

e.DO is a unique, modular, open-source, Industry 4.0-enabled, “build-it-yourself” robot that can pick up any object and run any application that fall within its speed and payload parameters.


Now available with 6 or 4 fully-motorized axes, e.DO is ready to help you explore or expand the world of robotics.

BUILD YOUR OWN e.DO

e.DO comes with everything you need to construct a multi-axis articulated robot with integrated open-source intelligence. Available with 6 or 4 motorized axes and a maximum payload of 1kg, e.DO can do everything from executing simple pick and place movements to handling automated activities.

With its open-source hardware and software platform and six degrees of freedom, e.DO can pick up and move any piece in any position – turning, rotating and lifting its axes as needed to accomplish the desired task. Anyone can program e.DO from a tablet computer thanks to the embedded Raspberry Pi (Raspbian Jessie 8.0) motherboard and the easy and highly intuitive e.DO Control Logic (native ROS) that comes pre-installed on e.DO’s SD memory card.

For advanced users who want to really put e.DO to the test, the open development environment allows you to directly enter and enhance the embedded control system, which gives e.DO the intelligence and flexibility to achieve complex movements, perform advanced sequences and automate real-word processes.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH e.DO?
[ALMOST ANYTHING!]


e.DO combines the underlying technology expertise of Comau – a leading industrial automation company – with a comprehensive open-source philosophy. Externally, e.DO can be enhanced with user-developed accessories and configurations. Internally, e.DO’s ROS-native, open-source control logic gives users complete freedom to create and execute their own programs and applications.

TheFabLab Milan, one of our beta testers, recently used a 3-D printer to fabricate a functional, user-developed gripper for e.DO. It was the first concrete example of how the e.DO community is helping e.DO perform at its very best, and was unveiled as part of Wired Next Fest 2017 in Milan, Italy.

Like other e.DO enthusiasts, they wanted to understand what could e.DO actually do. After brainstorming ideas ranging from simple to surreal, the team decided that e.DO needed a gripper that could pick up small to large pieces with ease. So they set out to produce it with 3-D Printing technology. And because they wanted to power the gripper as an independent joint, they added a servo motor that would interface with the e.DO open-source control software. And this is just the beginning!
