New Invention - Meet Edison - the super affordable, programmable robot
Edison is programmed using EdWare, an icon-based graphical programming language. Programs are downloaded to Edison using the EdComm cable. The EdComm cable plugs into the computer's headphone jack and carries a pulsed audio signal to a high-efficiency LED. The LED converts the pulsed audio signal into light that is received by Edison's line tracker phototransistor and loads the program into the processor.
How to Download Program on Edware
Sensors and inputs:
Obstacle detection: Infrared using 2 IR LEDs (front left and right) and IR receiver module (doubles as IR receiver)
Remote control: IR receiver module (38kHz) Edison can learn IR codes from most standard TV/DVD remote controls
Infrared data comms: IR receiver module (double as obstacle detection sensor and IR remote receiver)
Line tracker: Red LED and phototransistor (doubles as barcode reader and programming port)
Light sensors: 2 phototransistors (front left and right)
Sound sensor: Piezo transducer (doubles as sounder)
Drive: Differential drive system
Infrared data comms: 2 infrared LEDs (double as obstacle detection sensor)
Sound: Piezo buzzer (doubles as sound sensor)
Lights: 2 red LEDs (Front left and right)

Getting your class started with the Edison robot is easy with these 10 Robotics Lesson Plans.
You can use these 10 Robotics Lesson Plans either as they are or as a starting point to develop your own customised Robotics Lesson Plans. The Robotics Lesson Plans begin with the easier programming icons, such as basic movement behaviours and end with the class favourites, such as line tracking and sumo wrestling.
Students of all ages really enjoy the programming process, problem solving and collaboration involved with these Robotics Lesson Plans.
You will find that some students will grasp the initial concepts easily and be ready for the next activity. These Robotics Lesson Plans allow for independent learning and transition to the next lesson. As you grow in confidence with Edison and these Robotics Lesson Plans you will develop your own awareness of how best to transition your students from lesson to lesson.

How to fix free running wheel issue?
Here's the fix for that free running wheel. It's caused by the little worm gear coming off the motor inside. Easy to fix. You'll need a little hex screwdriver or allen key.
-Take the batteries out
-Take the screws out on top of the unit
-Take the clear plastic cover off, and from there you can access the screws that hold the circuit board in place.
-Undo the circuit board screws and take the circuit board out.
-Pull the rubber cover away from the DC motor and pull out the motor. Once you have done this, you will see the DC motor doesn't have the worm gear on the end of it.
-Find the worm gear and reattach it. You can compare to the other little motor for positioning.
-Turn the DC motor and observe the wheel now turns.
