HERO 1 - The Heathkit HERO robots make a great robot to start with.

Heath Company began the HERO 1 project in October 1979. The first units were available in 1982 and sales continued throughout most of the eighties. " The HERO 1 was the first and most popular robot model. An ideal teaching tool, HERO 1 is a completely self-contained robot that interacts with you and its environment. It's excellent for learning the components and circuitry of robots, as well as artificial intelligence.

The Heath "HERO" is a unique and outstanding educational robot "laboratory" and lends itself, as well, to use as a prototy per and experimenter. Its wide range of I/Os, including light and sound sensors, motion and range detectors, limit switches, interrupt port, speech synthesizer, steppers, real time clock, teach pendant, and input-outport experimental board, give it a wide educational scope.

It deals not only with microcomputer control of robots, but with I/Os in general. The microprocessor controller on board allows HERO to become intelligent, versatile, and flexible - powerful attributes of the modern robot. HERO's monitor allows programming in machine language and/or its higher robot command language.

To make HERO 1 even more life-like, the head rotates 350 degrees to position sensors and arm. Seven stepper motors control all movements. Plus powerful front wheel DC motors drive and steer HERO 1 with exceptional maneuverability.

On-board HERO 1 is a microprocessor that can guide the robot through complex maneuvers, activate and monitor sensors, and modify actions as a result of sensor or real-time clock inputs. A top-mounted breadboard lets you conduct experiments and interface circuits of your own design to the on-board microprocessor.

Commanding HERO 1 is easy with four different methods available to you.
A top-mounted keyboard lets you easily enter, verify and modify programs, and select operating modes.
An attachable Teaching Pendant lets you control all motor and arm movements, or store them for later duplication.
Control with an optional remote, radio frequency controlled transmitter.
You can also directly linking a host computer with the help of the optional Memory Expansion Board and RS-232 Interface.

HERO 1 is powered by four 6-volt gel cell rechargeable batteries. A 120/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz charger is included.
HERO 1 is 20" high, 18" in diameter and weights 39 lbs. with accessories.

ET-18-A HERO 1 An ideal teaching tool, HERO 1 is a completely self-contained robot that interacts with you and its environment. It's excellent for learning the components and circuitry of robots, as well as artificial intelligence.
