The FreeBird

FreeBird is a simple mobile robotic platform powered by an Atmel ATNGW100 evaluation board running GNU/Linux. Python/Lua code running on the FreeBird monitors data collected from various sensors (ultrasound, IR) and makes the robot perform a variety of simple actions (like avoid bumping into obstacles, follow a line etc). Because the code is written in two very powerful and easy to learn programming languages, FreeBird is an ideal platform to teach introductory Computer Programming in an exciting way.
