KoreBot: XScale Board for Mobile Robotics

Lausanne, Switzerland, 8 August 2003 - K-Team S.A. announces today KoreBot, a miniature board for mobile robotics.
KoreBot is a miniature XScale-based board tailored for mobile robotics,
thanks to its large range of input power, its large embedded power regulation, and, KoreMotor, its extension to contol up to 4 motors. In addition, KoreBot introduces in robotics established standard like Compact Flash and USB.
If KoreBot was first designed to increase performance and connectivity with low power consumption to Koala, our medium size mobile robot ( see http://www.k-team.com/robots/koala ), it is also fitted for upgrading existing mobile robots or prototyping new ones, from student competitions to advanced research. Moreover, it also fit the needs of OEM developers of handheld devices: at the size of a credit card, KoreBot is the smallest, low power embedded platform based on XScale.
KoreBot comes complete with all the hardware and software needed to start Linux Embedded development with no hidden license cost. K-Team only provides fee-based support and training for developpers.
KoreBot is the result of a collaboration between K-Team and two labs at the Swiss Institute of Technology at Lausanne namely the LAP within Armonie Project ( http://lapwww.epfl.ch/dev/arm/index.php?armonie ) and ASL within Swarm-Bots Project ( http://www.swarm-bots.org/ ).
