Proteus is a modular robotics platform designed for the education market. Specifically high school and university level classrooms.
The core of the proteus platform is a brain module, it holds the on-board computation unit and has the abilty to connect to many other modules through a high-power, high-data-throughput electromechanical connector.
There are several classes of modules: Power modules (battery), Locomotion (wheels, legs, tracks), Universe manipulation (robotic arms, grippers), Sensing modules (camera, LIDAR, range sensors, colour sensors, etc.).
Proteus is just as accessible for beginners as it is for advanced users.
Students begin with Python on our web-based IDE with robot simulator for testing code, and can move to more advanced languages and techniques as they progress.
As students advance they can access more complexity and technical detail within the platform, enabling advanced robotics projects.
The Proteus platform will also support user-designed and created modules, enabling students to also learn electronics and mechanical design skills.
The flexibility of our platform facilitates real world project based learning.
Students can design, develop & evaluate their solution to a real world problem using technologies previously only available to research & industry.
Learning outcomes from these real world projects prepare students for university and the jobs of tomorrow.
Our Proteus platform is currently in development.
