Thymio, an educational robot accessible to anyone.
|Thymio, an educational robot||Thymio is a small mobile robot that is well suited for anyone to discover technology. It aims to enable people to discover the fascinating world of robots by programming and having fun with its many features.|
|A ready-to-use robot||Thymio comes out of its box already assembled so you can start it in a few seconds. With 6 preprogrammed behaviors, you can find out what it can do in no time. Follow a line, avoid obstacles or follow your hand, Thymio already knows how to demonstrate its talents.|
|Programming with images or blocks||With the Thymio VPL and VPL3 interfaces, you can program Thymio with image blocks in an intuitive way. By combining events and actions, you will change the behavior of Thymio in a few clicks. Scratch and Blockly offer the widely used and tried system of programming with blocks, allowing for complex behaviours without the constraint of typing and minding the syntax.|
|Advanced uses||A Python interface brings you to the next level with Thymio. University-level experiments are conducted, programmed either in Python or Aseba, thanks to the complete Aseba framework and the Python module.|
|A scalable and resourceful robot||Thanks to the preprogrammed bheaviours and the many programming interfaces available in Thymio Suite (VPL, VPL3, Scratch, Blockly, Aseba Studio) or through complementary software (Python, ROS), Thymio can guide your journey from absolute beginner to understanding complex robotic alogrithms. To lead you through these interfaces, there are a lot of pedagogical resources developed for this little robot.|
|Wireless is better||The Wireless Thymio only needs its wireless dongle to be programmed. No more plugging and unplugging a USB cable. Moreover, with the visual feedback of Thymio VPL, you will be able to better understand how your program works in real time.|
