Overview

IRH-100 consists of 16 durable digital servo motors, dedicated main control board and metal frames with other hardware.
For compatibility with Arduino, IRH-100 is also equipped with IRduino board which simply plugs into main control board.
The IRduino board are perfectly compatible with all existing Arduino shields which extends capabilities of IRH-100 drastically. There are already various kinds of existing Arduino shields in the market and user may mount the shield onto IRduino board easily at really reasonable cost.
We basically provide IRduino API & Libraries for IRH-100, so you can build your own unique robot tasks freely. Most flexible open source Humanoid for Arduino is here and you can combine your imagination with IRH-100.

Features

Fully Assembled

It is our philosophy that current robot learning should be focused on learning software and its algorithm rather than learning hardware assembly. So, all IRH-100s will be delivered as a fully assembled version to minimize user’s unnecessary effort to assemble the robot. You do not need to put your endeavor into time-consuming, troublesome assembling which sometimes results parts breakage. Just open the box and enjoy robot learning immediately.

All in One Mainboard

Do not buy optional components. The IRH-100 includes most of necessary robotic components in the box like 6 axis gyro/accelerometer sensor and Bluetooth 4.0 module. In addition, the biggest merit point of IRH-100 is that it also includes IRduino board which is perfectly compatible with most of existing Arduino shields. Simply dock IRduino board onto the main control board of IRH-100 to extend the capability. Last, but not least, IRH-100’s main board supports to expand upto 24DOF maximum and faster data processing is available through 16bit microcontroller. 1MB data memory capacity enables user to be free from the restriction of storage unit. (100 different pre-programmed motions, plus 100 more motions created by user can be stored in IRH-100.)

IRduino Board

The IRduino is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega32u4 and it simply can be docked onto IRH-100’s main board. It has 20 digital input/output pins (7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a micro USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. To manage port expandability efficiently, user may select between Hardware serial and Software serial communication. Also, you are able to use IRduino board as an individual microcontroller board which is completely compatible with Arduino for your further robotic task. API, examples and Library will be provided with API manual.

Servo Motors

The IRH-100 consists of 16 durable, energetic programmable digital servos called IRS-430. ​Featured with highly durable super engineering plastic gear train, powerful motor and elaborate circuit board with 32bit Micom and 4096 resolution, IRH-100 ensures users to perform various challenging robot tasks. Overload protection and position feedback feature are basic of this sturdy servo motor.

Total Manager

Total Manager Software is an intuitive interface software for setting of motion, motion task, programming LEDs/Buzzer and monitor various sensor value. Thanks to “Inverse-Kinematics” UI and motion synchronization for the left and right, user is able to create their own motions intuitively and time for motion creation will be saved drastically.
Why Open Source?
Everybody can do with Arduino!
Drastically Expand your robot’s functionality.

Open Source for Everybody

Open source from beginner to expert
IRduino is an open-source platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software which is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users, so developer may edit it freely & flexibly.
Abundant information
Developer may easily acquire abundant technical information through Arduino community. There are tons of Arduino communities on the web and even beginner may get necessary information, advice easily from the communities and may also approach various kinds of self-teaching books for Arduino anywhere, anytime.

Simple. Hassle Free.

With IRduino, you do not need to be an electronic professional. Even many artists like interactive music and video artiest may utilize it for their project.
Non-professional may learn Robotics easily and build their own robotic structures effectively for proto type using IRduino platform based on easy programming and abundant information on the internet.
Soldering will be minimized thanks to “Breadboard” system.

Best solution to learn C language yet.

Since Arduino is using similar language as C, it is a good tool to learn C language effectively. The language can be expanded through C++ libraries, and user who wants to understand more technical details may skip to the AVR C programming language on which it’s based. On the other hand, user may add AVR-C code directly into their IRduino programs if they wish.
Also, you may utilize your knowledge if you have some experience in Flash, Android, MaxMSP, Processing and Object C.

Variety Arduino “Shields”.

Abundant “Shields” at reasonable cost in the market. Immediate solution.
There are already existing “shield(like sensors)” which enable developer to try various kinds of robot tasks in short time.
Most of Shield Boards are relatively reasonable in cost-wise comparing to other microcontroller system, so developer may also minimize development cost..

Convenience

Using USB port
Thanks to using the most popular USB port (No Serial or Parallel port as like conventional Micom development). No need converting gender. Simply plug in your USB port to enter into the new world of IRduino.
Cross-platform
Compatible with the most of O/S like Windows, Mackintosh OSX and Linux operating system while most of microcontroller system support Windows only.
