DESCRIPTION

Our first programmable robot designed for outdoor use!

Boasting Bluetooth functionality and designed for robust challenges, Rugged Robot can be controlled via tablet or the TTS TacTile Reader.

With a memory of up to 256 steps, Rugged Robot will be able to carry out the most challenging of activities. With 3 speeds, students can set how fast the robot moves. It also boasts an obstacle sensor which can be turned on and off to prepare students to the more complex programming that lies ahead.

An obstacle sensor which can be turned on and off will detect obstacles in front of the robot and reverse and rotate 45 degrees before carrying out the rest of the program.

Movement

The new control panel on the Rugged Robot uses a 45 degree turn that will help to extend children’s learning from the Bee-Bot’s 90 degree turn.  Why not use Rugged Robot when introducing angles to look at simple angles in shapes?

With a longer travel distance of 20cm, you can take 
Rugged Robot on longer journeys. Why not set your children a challenge, how many moves to travel one metre?

Teach children about procedures using the built in obstacle sensor (which can be turned on and off).  It will detect obstacles in front of the robot within 10cm and reverse and rotate 45 degrees before carrying out the rest of the program.

Bodywork

You will never be caught out in a lesson with a ‘flat’ Rugged Robot. With the LED charge ring, children can be responsible for making sure that Rugged Robot is always at full charge.

With a built in camera mount holder, children can see their route through the eyes of Rugged Robot.

The built in storage area means that children can use their Rugged Robot to transport and collect items, giving them another purpose to their programming experience.

Connectivity

With Bluetooth functionality, you can wirelessly control your Rugged Robot with your tablet (Android and iOS) or the TTS TacTile Reader (see accessories page). The App is ready to download and can even be used to change the name of your Rugged Robot.

FEATURES

The computing curriculum

Rugged Robot can be used across all age groups to develop computing skills in: 

  • Learning and exploring directional language
  • Exploring, testing, designing and writing programs
  • Debugging of programs and solving problems
  • Decomposition in programs
  • Using procedures in programs and working with variables
  • Writing and exploring algorithms
  • Prediction of the behaviour of simple programs
  • Use of logical reasoning to explain how algorithms and programs are working

 

Activity inspiration

  • Ages 3-5

  • Ages 7-11

The wider curriculum

You can also use your Rugged Robot to develop skills in the wider curriculum:

  • Speaking and Listening. 
    Learning and programming with the Rugged Robot can be a paired or group activity to encourage verbal communication.  
  • Developing independence through active learning.
    The simple design and easy to use App allow children to learn through independent exploration and trial and error. Staff can also play and learn alongside the children.
  • Cross-curricular opportunities.
    Use your Rugged Robot to incorporate computing across the curriculum.  You could use your Rugged Robot to draw shapes in the sand or navigate through a story map.

 

 

  • Ages 5-7

 
 
The free downloadable Rugged robot app enables you to:
  • Connect to your Rugged Robot via Bluetooth
  • See the programmed sequence in order to correct any errors (debugging)
  • Record audio to support pupils with hearing back the steps
  • Use a ‘repeat’ function for commands (decomposition)
  • Extend children’s learning by ‘hiding’ commands e.g.:
    • Can you get to X without using the forward command?
    • Rename your Rugged Robot
  • Connect each Rugged Robot to a different tablet to avoid any classroom confusion!
