This paper introduces the hard- and software of an educational mobile robot as well as exemplary parts of the framework design to discuss the requirements of such a system. The framework design relies heavily on abstraction and encapsulation while featuring Design Pattern to allow an easy access to the system and to keep it extensible. The system itself is in use since 2009 and has received positive feedback from students/users who have worked with it. This includes feedback on hand-on exercises and tutorials as well as larger projects. Exemplary results of these projects are presented in this paper. Topic: educational robots and tools Keywords: educational mobile robot, framework, abstraction
