To fix: Install the latest FTDI Driver (VCP) from here.
The concept behind this project is to provide a very easy-to-use and easy-to-customize platform for building small robots. When we say customize, we mean it! Users can customize the hardware circuit, the chassis, the firmware and the PC software which controls the robots. Through the complete open sourcing of the Ikimo Robot Platform, users can easily modify the designs to match their needs. Furthermore, Ikimo is low-cost with models starting under $100.
All Our Base Are Belong To You!
Ikimo's arduino-compatible robot brain means easy coding, easy modding, and (easy) access to all sorts of arduino-ecosystem addons and modules. All schematics, code, and libraries are open source and available for download.
We provide an easy-to-use API which can be loaded onto the Ikimo board. Users can start communicating with the board though popular software languages such as Java, Processing, C++, Python, VVVV, etc. Please see the Downloads section for the sample code. (Project is hosted and maintained by Charith @ inmojo)
"Phybots", a full-featured Java library can be downloaded (supports Win/Mac) and setup within a few minutes. AR marker-based tracking, line tracing, pick and place objects are included in the software bundle. http://phybots.com (Project is hosted and maintained by Jun Kato).
Python libraries written to directly communicate with Ikimo board can be downloaded from
https://github.com/daan/ikimo (Project is hosted and maintained by Daniel Saakes).
Created your own library or mod? Let us know and we will post it to the official Ikimo site.
What's in a Frame?
Ikimo's standard frame layout lets you download and share laser cut frame designs. Search the frame library for a design you like, upload your designs, or sell your own pre-cut chassis.
