Get to know Edison

To use Edison you’re going to need to know where all his sensors are and what his three buttons do. Have a look at the images below. You may need to come back and have another look as we go through the EdVentures.

Robot line sensors and power switch

Edison’s power switch and line tracking sensor

Edison’s line tracking sensor is made up of two parts a red LED light and a light sensor. The red LED shines light on the ground, if the ground is white and therefore, reflects light then the light sensor will get a high light reading. If the ground is black and therefore, does not reflect light then the light sensor gets a low light reading.

The EdComm cable is used to download programs to Edison. It connects into the headphone socket on your computer or tablet.

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.
