EdMat robot activity mat

The EdMat is an A1 size (59cm x 84cm) (23.2in x 33.1in) robot activity mat that can be printed at your local print shop.

Perfect for getting started with Edison and for ongoing use as a test mat for all your Edison creations and programs, the free-to-download EdMat is designed to make running robot activities simple to set up and loads of fun. 

The EdMat includes six barcodes that activate pre-installed programs including ‘follow a torch’, ‘line tracking’ and ‘sumo wrestle’. Instructions explaining how to scan the barcodes, and helpful hints about running each program (such as always starting the Edison on a white surface) are included on the EdMat. Using EdMats in the classroom makes it easy to set up ‘robot testing stations’ for students to try out their programs.

The EdMat can be laminated to protect it, but if you do laminate it make sure you select a matte finish. A glossy lamination on the EdMat will upset Edison’s sensor and may cause errors, so the EdMat must be laminated with a matte finish laminate.


Printing and lamination recommendations:

  • Print the EdMat on 200GSM or thicker paper with a matte finish
  • Only use a matte finish laminate, if laminating


Two free-to-download versions of the EdMat are available: full colour and black-and-white.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
