What is Zumy?

Zumy is a small scale tracked mobile robot build design for quick-build from mostly off-the-shelf components. The robot has both and mbed microcontroller board and an ODROID full Linux computer on board. Target applications are mobile computer vision and multi-robot coordination.

The only custom part in the robot is one PCB that is a carrier for several off-the-shelf modules. Soldering is required.
(If you would like to build a Zumy, contact the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab and we can probably supply one of these unpopulated boards.)
