RoboBuilder 5710K Plus Edition
We've re-aligned our RoboBuilder offer with new Editions from Affordable to
Full featured, all packing the best Robot Technology from RoboBuilder.
This 5710K Plus is balanced offer in terms of Price/Performance: it
offers a comprehensive set of features for users looking to explore the
Sensorial and Programming aspects of Robotics but who don't need the Wireless
The 5710K Plus includes the 5710K-S03 Robot (16 Actuators, Joint Insert Assembly System, IR Remote, Sound Sensor), the Complete Set of Sensors (Sound Sensor, Distance Sensor and
Acceleration Sensor) and USB connectivity.
As a Robotic platform, RoboBuilder offers a very smooth learning curve with Easy
Assembly and Visual Programming Tools for Beginners (including Microsoft
Robotics Studio and Visual programming).
Advanced users can take advantage of the .Net programming libraries, Serial
Control Protocol (offloading control to a PC) or use WinAVR to build your own
Firmware Code (multiple Official and Open Source variants are available to get
||Multiple Robot Shapes
The RoboBuilder comes with 16
(DoF) and can be built into a variety of shapes. By default it can be
built into a Humanoid, a Dinosaur or a Quadpod (Dog) but with the
joint-assembly system you can quickly redesign and prototype a robot
into any shape you can imagine.
With the Hexapod Extension Kit you get 2 extra DoF enabling the assembly
of a Hexapod.
||Joint Assembly System for Easy and Reliable Assembly
The patented Joint Assembly System allows for rapid assembly of the
Robot (ideal for Beginners), while being robust enough to handle the
most demanding motions.
It also enables rapid prototyping of other robot shapes, ideal for
experimenting and extending the Robot.
Sensor + Acceleration Sensor + Sound Sensor
The RoboBuilder comes with a Built in
Microprocessor and can be fitted with 3 different types of Sensors:
Sound Detection, Distance Sensing / Obstacle Detection and Acceleration
This Plus Edition from RoboSavvy includes
the Full Sensor Pack (all 3 sensors): the Sound Sensor will detect
Loud Sounds, the Distance Sensor will let you avoid obstacles while the
Acceleration Sensor detects when your Robot falls.
Plus Edition Robots are also capable of
automatically getting up whenever they detect falling (just press
"#" + STOP to enable "Auto get up mode") or you can write your own
custom behaviours to react to sensorial input.
Behaviours depending on Sensorial input can vary from waiving
at people passing, walking around avoiding obstacles, reacting to Loud
Sounds, etc. These can be created using multiple tools available (from
Beginner to Advanced): the User Friendly ActionBuilder software for
Beginners and for Advanced user the .Net Libraries and Serial Control
||Wireless Remote Control
a Standard IR Remote Control. The Robot includes Ready to Run Motions
out of the Box so you can immediately start using it after completing
In addition you can also add your own Motions and Behaviours that can be
Activated and Controlled with the IR Remote.
Additionally RoboBuilder Editions that include Bluetooth will let you
Control the Robot Wirelessly using any Android Device (RoboBuilder
Bluetooth Remote Control App is available for Free on Android Market).
Bluetooth is not included in this "Plus Edition" but it's an
that can be purchased separately and/or added at any later time.
Microsoft Robotics Studio
Visual Programming Language
|Smooth Learning Curve with Multiple Programming Options
The Robot comes Pre Programmed and Ready to Run out of the box. As soon
as you complete the Assembly you can start using the Robot with the pre
Additionally, you can add new Motions and New behaviours (Sensorial
Reactions) using the easy to use Graphical Tools:
- MotionBuilder is used to create and add new moves to the
robot using a simple "catch-and-play" system.
- ActionBuilder is a friendly graphical tool for Beginners to
create simple behaviours (avoid obstacles, get up after falling, etc.).
- Microsoft Robotics Development Studio:
RoboBuilder MSRDS Manual
for Step by Step Guides about using the Powerful
Visual Programming Language to perform Advanced Applications:
- React to Voice Commands
- Control the Robot from your Computer / Keyboard
- Control the Robot with your Gamepad, and much more.
For Advanced Users
- RBC Serial Protocol* (for Controlling and Querying the Robot
Sensors and Actuators in Real Time)
RBC Serial Protocol you can write control Logic for the Robot in
practically any Language on the PC (Ruby, Python, PHP, ...).
The Robot and
the PC communicate in Real Time making it possible to write a full Control Cycle with an
external processor/device very easily.: Query the Robot Sensors and Actuator
Position and Send back Motion and Actuator Commands*
- Microsoft Visual Studio .Net Libraries*
Choose form the MSRDS libraries or
the Open Source .Net Libraries Developed by our Community that
let you create a Full Control Loop on the PC.
These libraries encapsulate the RBC Serial Protocol (above) in a Convenient
and Easy to use Library*
- BASIC Interpreter:
Alternative Firmware for
let's you program the Robot in BASIC.
- WinAVR C:

from RoboBuilder and multiple

(The options marked with '*' mean the Robot and the computer will
interact in real time; you can use the included cable or
upgrade to Bluetooth for wireless communication)
The RoboBuilder is equipped with the RBC Control Box
(ATMEGA128 based) capable of storing and playing Motion Files and Action Files
and providing a Comprehensive Serial Control Protocol for scenarios where you
require interaction and control from an External MCU (such as the PC).
All Actuators use PID Control and are connected
via a Daisy Chain Serial bus, offering both
reliable control and easy assembly and extensions. The Robots can be extended up
to a maximum of 253 Actuators using this mechanism.
For Advanced users (Hackers), each Actuator includes
port and 2x DIO ports Controlled and Queried via the Serial Protocol.
These can be used to connect Additional Sensors or DIO devices to the Robot. In
addition the I2C port on the main controller can be re-used for adding I2C
devices (you'll need an Alternative Open Source Firmware (DCMP) or WinAVR C; See
Accessories and Extension Kits for Customizing your Robot
