TDK Announces Next-Generation SmartRobotics Platform, TDK RoboKit1
January 07, 2022
The next-generation robotic development platform enables quick prototyping and development for robotic developers, designers, and enthusiasts, by providing a robust hardware platform accompanied by full ROS1 and ROS2 compliant drivers and software algorithms.
TDK RoboKit1 will be offered both as a stand-alone development platform as well as a full robot reference design. The board will consist of a range of TDK technology, including a 6-axis IMU, capacitive barometric pressure sensor, digital I²S microphone (x4), temperature sensor, embedded motor controller, and magnetometer. Depending on which version of the platform is purchased, the board will also be joined by TDK’s industrial IMU sensor module via flex cables as well as a full robotic chassis and 3D printed casing, allowing all end customers to develop a fully functional robotic reference design.
The TDK RoboKit1 is available to order now through distribution channels worldwide. Availability for shipping is targeted for mid Q1 2022.
TDK will be introducing the TDK RoboKit1 during the 2022 CES Virtual Press Conference
