Barcodes and Edison

Learn about robotics with Edison, no coding required! Ages 4+

This activity book is a great place to get started with Edison. Edison’s robotics capabilities can be unlocked with ease through simple barcode programs included in this activity book. Work through the book having your Edison robot read the included special barcodes that activate pre-programmed features, such as line following, obstacle avoidance, sumo wrestling and much more!

What’s inside?

Explore robotics fundamentals, discover how the Edison robot’s sensors work, and learn interesting ‘EdFacts’ about electronics as you work through this activity book using 15 different barcodes for Edison to scan. Work through seven fun robot activities:

  1. Clap controlled driving
  2. Avoid obstacles
  3. Follow a torch/flashlight
  4. Line tracking
  5. Bounce in borders
  6. Sumo wrestle
  7. Remote control driving (with a standard TV or DVD remote control)

The activity book also includes instructions for calibrating the sensitivity of the Edison robot’s obstacle detection.
