We would like to thank our community for all the feedback and the great ideas that we continue to incorporate into the RobotLAB BOX -- please, keep the suggestions coming!

A new version of the software is released and ready for download every semester -- please make sure your version is up to date. The update process is very easy, just follow the instructions here.

Release notes for version 1.17:

  • ArmBot lessons can now support both ArmBot versions (ArmBotV2.0 & ArmBotV2.1).

 

Release notes for End-Of-School version 1.16:

  • Addition of a "Robots" page to the Launcher! Everything that you need to know about the robots is here: how to operate them, battery life, all the lessons using the specific robot. We've also added a  short instructional video for each robot.
  • The screen of the tablet is now always on (the screen saver is disabled) until the lesson is ended.
  • Automatic connection is added- just press the “Ready?” button on the preparation list at the beginning of each lesson, and the lesson will automatically connect to the robot.
  • Investigation control panel can now support fractions as well.
  • The graph can now support fractions and negative quadrants as well;
  • Smooth and relaxed motion of the Ar.Drone (quadcopter). It tracks the shape in the center of the mat and adjusts its position, changing direction accordingly. Make sure you clear the surface from chars, tables... otherwise, it will measure its height related to the object and not the mat/floor.
  • Launcher content for each lesson is more descriptive.

 

 

  • More quizzes!
  • More lessons!                                                                                                                          More instructional videos!
