TDK RoboKit1

“In January 2022, TDK Corporation subsidiary InvenSense announced the TDK RoboKit1, a development platform and reference design for robotics systems. The TDK RoboKit1 board, powered by an ARM Cortex-M7 processor, incorporates a number of sensors, including a 6‑axis IMU, a barometric pressure sensor, a magnetometer, digital I²S microphones, a temperature sensor, and ultrasonic Time of Flight (ToF) sensors. Also included with the TDK RoboKit1 are software libraries, as well as ROS 1‑&nbspand ROS 2‑compliant drivers.”

— The Robot Report


TDK RoboKit1 combines sensors, processors and actuators on a single board making it an ideal robotics platform for quick prototyping and ROS development.

RoboKit integrates key product offerings such as 6-axis IMU, industrial IMU modules, capacitive barometric pressure sensor, digital I²S microphone, temp sensor, ultrasonic Time of Flight (ToF) sensors, magnetometer and motor controller on a single PCB.

The open-sourced board supports ROS drivers and algorithms, making it an ideal platform for ROS hobbyists, educational institutions, and a multitude of Robotics developers. The Robokit platform also provides out of the box integrated software solutions such as obstacle detection, floor type detection, cliff detection (not suitable for RVC application) and dynamic heading detection.
