Fire Bird V – P89V51RD2

Fire Bird V will help you get acquainted with the world of robotics and embedded systems. Thanks to its innovative architecture and adoption of the ‘Open Source Philosophy’ in its software and hardware design, you will be able to create and contribute to, complex applications that run on this platform, helping you acquire expertise as you spend more time with them. Fire Bird V is designed by NEX Robotics and Embedded Real-Time Systems lab, CSE IIT Bombay.

As a Universal Robotic Research Platform, Fire Bird V provides an excellent environment for experimentation, algorithm development and testing. Fire Bird V is evolved from Fire Bird IV and Fire Bird II which are being used in IIT Bombay to teach embedded systems and robotics. Its modular architecture allows you to control it using multiple processors such as 8051, AVR, PIC and ARM7 etc. Modular sensor pods can be mounted on the platform as dictated by intended applications. Precision position encoders makes it possible to have accurate position control. The platform can be upgraded to tank drive and Hexapod insect or any other desired form very easily. It is powered by high performance rechargeable NiMH batteries. A 2.4 GHz ZigBee module provides state of the art secure and multi-channel wireless communication up to a range of one kilometer.
