MiRo-E, the Advanced Robotic Platform for Research and Education


Friendly, flexible, and intelligent – Miro-E is a highly specified, low-cost, sophisticated robotic platform designed and developed for schools and universities.

MiRo-E, the Advanced Robotic Platform for Research and Education

MiRo-E is a highly specified, flexible, low-cost, programmable AI robotic platform developed to mimic normal domestic animal-like behavior. Create fun and socially engaging classroom experiences for every student. Using a MiRo-E can create a diverse and collaborative classroom experience where everyone and anyone can be involved! Watch your pupils delight in writing programs that bring their robots to life! MiRo-E can see, hear and interact with its environment providing endless programming possibilities that will push students’ creativity. As a result, students learn quickly, enjoy STEM subjects and produce physical results that can be related and applied to real-world issues.

Key Highlights

  • 3rd Generation MiRo-E has been completely re-engineered and evolved for education from our previous version for University developers.
  • Using a smartphone to easily configure it to exhibit pet-like behavior in pastoral / demonstration mode works straight out of the box.
  • Flexible platform for learning robotics coding from primary school first principle to high-level university research.
  • An easy-to-learn programming interface has been specially designed to provide an attractive and accessible method of coding and simulating MiRo.

Simulate MiRo-E’s behavior on screen using a computer-based Gazebo program, which means a whole class can work on programming and only need one or two MiRo-E per classroom.

  • Emotionally Engaging personality that is friendly, familiar, and non-threatening.
  • State of Art Biomimetic AI technology replicates a small mammal’s behavior.
  • It has a powerful Raspberry Pi B 3+ processor incorporated and loaded with software.
  • Fully programmable, serviceable, and upgradeable by a user with moderate experience.
  • The unique Brain-Based Biomimetic Control System [3BCS] was developed by Sheffield University and in Bristol Robotics Lab.
  • Online support system based in our Bristol Labs with regular software updates.
  • Communicates using WiFi / Bluetooth / USB, which allows:
  • Bluetooth set-up and behavior configuration using MiRo-E Android App.
  • WiFi gives access to higher-power computing and cloud services.

What does Miro Do?

MiRo-E is programmed to react to humans and other MiROs through recognition, movement, sound, and light. It is autonomous in a demonstration / pastoral care model. It responds to touch, stroking and sound. It is a proven flexible & helpful tool for sophisticated university research. For example, it could potentially help with therapy for neurological conditions [from SEN to dementia], and we are pursuing research in these areas.

  • MiRo is proving to be helpful as a pastoral and cognitive therapy tool, and we are continuing to research more into:
  • Special Educational Needs in children and adults.
  • High-level university research looking to hack robots or do their custom programming.

The 3rd Gen. MiRo-E has been specifically developed for education, including:

  • Primary schools use the physical MiRo-E and the simple to grasp MiRo Educational programming Interface [MiRoCODE] to teach younger pupils basic robotics and coding principles.
  • Secondary schools using MiRoCODE with Blockly or Python, or development in Python and C++, programming languages.
  • A classroom pet in early school learning [a pastoral care mode is coming soon].
  • Research into therapy for Special Educational Needs and older age-related issues.

Advanced students can use a different Linux development environment [our MDK] to explore more complex research and behaviors. What is MiRo’s battery life, and how is it charged? – MiRo comes with a rechargeable battery pack and an inline charger. The battery life varies with usage, but it is approximately 6+ hours active and 12+ hours standby.

Shipping Policy

WE SHIP WORLDWIDE: We primarily ship via FedEx, UPS, DHL, EMS, TNT, and USPS because they are fast, reliable, and easily trackable. We usually ship within two to three business days after the full payment. Standard delivery generally occurs within 5 to 7 business days after the shipping date. However, sometimes delivery may take about 7 to 10 business days, depending on the shipping destination, logistics mode, weather conditions, product weight, size, or shipping company distribution structures based on re-planning, such as staff shortages caused by COVID.

SHIPPING COSTS: For some industrial products, e.g., heavy wheels, CNC machines, etc., the shipping cost is calculated based on the product weight, not quantity. To benefit from lower shipping costs for orders with multiple items, don't hesitate to contact us at sales@ozrobotics.com. Our shipping rates are listed very clearly on each product page under the SHIPPING tab. Additionally, to see the shipping cost for your country, add the item to the Shopping Cart; you will see the shipping cost based on your Country and Location.

CUSTOMS and TARIFFS: While not all products require a tariff, some products may require a minimal tariff if applicable in your country for orders of $800.00 and above. The total amount for your order does not include a customs fee/tariff. A tariff belongs to the buyer when applicable. Why don't we add tariffs to the product's retail price? - If all countries deducted the same tariff amount, we would have added the tariff amount to the product price. However, we do not do that because each country charges a different amount, while some do not even charge. Therefore we can't add any tariff to the product's retail pricing. Oz Robotics, Manufacturing Partner, or Supplier are not responsible for tariffs. Please check the "Made In" and "Made By" labels on the product page to see the product's origin. The total amount for your order does not include any duties, import taxes, customs fees, and GST/VAT. The buyer must pay all import duties. Please click here to see more on Tariffs.
