What devices and operating systems can you use with Edison robots?

Edison robots are compatible with most tablets, desktop computers, laptops and Chromebooks.

All of the Edison robotics programming languages can be accessed through a browser, meaning there is nothing to download onto the programming devices you use, enabling you to program Edison on tablets, iPads and Chromebooks as well as laptops and desktop computers.

Edison V1 and V2 robots will require an audio jack input to allow Edison to connect using the EdComm cable. The EdComm cable is the special cable used to download programs to Edison V1 and V2 robots from any of the Edison robotics programming languages and connects to your tablet, computer or Chromebook using the programming device’s audio jack input. The other end of the EdComm cable connects to the underside of your Edison robot, near the power switch. This communication method is compatible with Mac, Linux, Windows, iOS and Android operating systems.

Edison V3 robots can be programmed by connecting the USB-A cable to your device or utilising the screen flasher for iOS devices. Edison V3 is compatible with Windows, Chromebook, Mac, Linux and Android.

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.
