Minirobots is a company set up with the aim to become a reference in educational robotics.
In MiniRobots, we develop and distribute our own products such as the mOway robot, and we provide a complete learning solutions which covers important curriculum areas in Technology, ICT and Programming, while stimulating creativity, autonomy and group-working skills.
To achieve this objective, Minirobots works with Teachers, Educators, and Educational Centres in Secondaries, Colleges and Universities to understand and satisfy their needs.
Minirobots are launching Moway Smart City - a new accessory for the Moway robot that simulates a futuristic city and the way interactions with the urban infrastructures and elements within it will occur. Control of the Smart City is provided by an Arduino controller board.
Moway Smart City is available in three different kits:
Students from the Park Road Primary School have made their own video explaining how to programme with the mOway robot.
Aged between 9 and 10, the students have been learning robotics and programming with the robot for some time now. Their teacher says that they have dedicated a lot of time and effort in preparing this tutorial but have been very enthusiastic about their work.
The Moway robot is an educational tool created with the aim of bringing robotics technology to classrooms throughout the world.
Moway is a didactic tool designed for the world we live in. By bringing the world of robotics, programming and technology into education centres and schools, it enables these subjects to be taught using high-quality methodologies that allow students to become familiar with and understand the technology that surrounds us in our daily lives.
mOway is a complete solution for learning: a controllable robot packed with sensors. Discover creative programming and electronic control through the simple and intuitive mOway software allowing you to control the robot's input and output devices so students can develop their own programs. The mOway moves forwards, backwards, rotates, follow lines and avoids obstacles.
Connect mOway to the PC via the supplied USB cable, program and go! The mOway kits provide everything you need to get the mOway up and running. Students create the control program in the graphical software and then download the instructions into the mOway at the click of button.
The many sensors and controllable features of the robot give plenty of opportunity for the new and experienced programmer. The simple flow chart and object based programming software will let students control the robot within minutes of unpacking the mOway. The programs are written and developed on a PC using mOwayGUI, a software tool based on flow charts and objects. Multiple sub routines are available for the more advanced programmer as is the ability to use programming languages such as C or Assembler.
