Experiential Robotics Platform (XRP)
What Is the XRP Platform?
The XRP (Experiential Robotics Platform) [beta], developed through a collaboration between WPI and DEKA Research & Development Corp., aims to level the STEM playing field globally and create a future generation of STEM innovators and technology leaders.
The robot kits you received are designed to operate autonomously and perform basic tasks. Its simple, tool-free assembly means robots can be built quickly, and replacement parts can be easily 3-D printed. As part of this platform, WPI will provide virtual support through online courses and will guide students and teachers through the new system, including the ability to scale up using the same hardware with free software updates.
The XRP platform is part of WPI’s global STEM education initiative, which will bring inspiration and possibility to STEM education in ways that make it available to all.
