e.DO Robot

Small articulated robot with integrated open-source intelligence

Discovering the Comau Educational Robot

e.DO robot has 6 powered axes and a maximum payload of 1kg and can perform all kinds of tasks, from simple movements in space to pick & place operations like lifting, moving, manipulating and rotating parts right up to complex automated procedures.

Thanks to the support of innovative teaching and learning tools, e.DO makes educational projects far more stimulating and exciting.

What can you do with e.DO?

e.DO is the ideal companion for learning and teaching mathematics, physics and technology. It also lets
you experiment with basic and advanced robotic principles and practice most common programming

e.DO helps you learn in an original and entertaining way, combining theory with practice and encouraging group participation and inclusion. Its modular, flexible design, encourages creativity and helps both teachers and students to advance and personalize their skill sets.

Combining Technoologies to innovative philosophy

e.DO combines all the technological know-how of Comau – worldwide leader in industrial automation –
with a complete open-source philosophy. Thanks to open control logic and a native ROS, e.DO
gives users complete freedom to create and run programs and applications.

Main features

based on open-source hardware
architecture and software

composite plastic casings and a base
unit with integrated control logic and memory

modular structure even permits personalised configurations

Each motorised unit has its own autonomous mechanical and electronic controller that can be configured to meet the operator’s needs

Open platform

Since e.DO works thanks to ROS (Robot Operating System, ros.org), robot enthusiasts can program e.DO with a wide range of languages such as C / C ++, Python, Java and interact with any ROS compatible hardware or software component.

ROS is also used by students of all ages – from children interacting with robots in museum exhibits to graduate students learning the latest solutions to common robotics problems.

Hardware and software Architecture

Inside the elegant hexagonal base, e.DO contains a Raspberry Pi motherboard with an operating system based on Linux.

The e.DO development environment allows advanced users to directly enter the integrated control system and improve it; this system provides e.DO with the intelligence and flexibility to create complex movements, perform advanced sequences and automate real-world processes.


e.DO is considered a “machine” according to the definition of the Machinery Directive 2006/42 / EC and a “Robot for Personal Care” according to the EN ISO 13482: 2014.

This means that e.DO can be used safely without barriers by anyone over 8 years old (with adult supervision).
