    Dive into robotics

    with the first small size, open and low cost personal drone.

Technology

Inspired by the BeagleBone development board, we have designed a small flying robot with about 40 sensors, plenty of I/O and processing power for real-time analysis.

Erle represents the next generation of nano aerial robots that will be used in cities solving tasks such as surveillance, enviromental monitoring or even providing aid at catastrophes.

It is a small size Linux flying computer that is bringing robotics to the people and business.

Learning

We believe that free exchange of ideas is critical to creating an environment where people are allowed to learn and use existing information toward creating new ideas. Thereby, this is an Open Source Initiative (OSI) with global scope bringed to educate, teach and inspire about robotics.

In order to do that, we've been working hard for the last year to provide not just some fancy hardware, but a whole robot system that includes hardware, software and the tools neccesary to learn how to use it.
