About us

We have been building robots and coding for almost 10 years. During the last 5 years we have been working on the sumo robot technology. Together we spend loads of time trying to find and figure out ways to make our devices do new and exciting things.

We are peers, colleagues and friends. Together we spend loads of time trying to find and figure out ways how to make our devices do new and exciting things.

Our projects

"Atspēriens" grant project

We are proud to implement a Riga City Council and "Swedbank" support program grant for our development. Within the project, we have developed an ArduBlocks - based visual programming environment, which is available with no use restrictions from here: https://github.com/robotnest/ArduBlocks

SumoBoy

SumoBoy

Robot prototyping kit includes robot SumoBoy and prototyping kit, opening an opportunity for interesting time spending and a way for implementation of your own projects. The kit is designed for pupils and enthusiast looking for a way to learn fundamentals of electronics and programming. The SumoBoy robot is design in accordance with international rules of robot sumo competitions and is ready to participate there. The prototyping kit includes a bredboard for soldering-free circuit construction allowing to reuse the components for different designs and use Arduino Micro microcontroller for programming. The kit is designed using accumulated teaching experience of Robotics Club of Riga Technical University leading the robotics community in Latvia since 2008.

Project “Multi-robot system for domestic services”

Project “Multi-robot system for domestic services”

Some of us have been involved in different research and development project over the last years. However only few of them really excites us and we hope encourages others as well. One of them is Multi-robot project that demonstrated for the first time in Latvia cooperative robotic team enabling share a common task among robot team members, plan their execution and monitor the results. Some of the RobotNest team are still continuing their research trying to deliver the next generation of cooperative robotics technology.

Project AGR8

Project AGR8

Some time ago we decided to help our armed forces by building a highly mobile robotic platform with significant autonomy. The chassis concept of the platform born while playing with Lego blocks but the practical implementation experienced 3 generations or versions before outdoor tests. While the last version is still a model it provided a significant amount of information and scientific data about its dynamics resulting in several Latvian patents and published scientific papers. We still have a plan to create a fully functional autonomous robotic platform and part of the RobotNest team is working on the next version of the robot attracting young researchers from Riga Technical University. Project is still non-commercial.

For clubs

To facilitate faster adoption of robotics and IT specific skills we have elaborated a special offer for clubs and schools based on our experience for last 10 years in organizing hands-on robotics seminars and technical chill-outs.

  • Visiting seminars for teachers, pupils and enthusiasts to provide an insight into electronics, robotics and programming fundamentals or just to have fun through education;
  • Dedicated club sets that ensures all necessary equipment for building robots, programming and training for competitions;
  • Full equipment for school classes to enable robotics lessons including hand tools, study material and other necessary tools for work over the semester;
  • RENT of the robots with RobotNest support and service whenever it is needed ensuring their full functionality and upgrade over the rent period;

Each of the services is very specific in need an individual approach. Therefore if you consider it, please contact us.

Downloads

Demonstration project

The Demonstration project is being installed at manufacturing site and is used to test and demonstrate the main functions of the SumoBoy. To install the project, download the code and unzip it in folder you know. Use the Arduino programming Environment installation guide to setup the Environment and then use it to open the project.
