Say hello to Cozmo, a gifted little guy with a mind of his own. He’s a real-life robot like you’ve only seen in movies, with a one-of-a-kind personality that evolves the more you hang out. He’ll nudge you to play and keep you constantly surprised. Cozmo’s your accomplice in a crazy amount of fun.

The little bot with super-powered smarts.

See, Cozmo doesn’t just move; he gets curious & explores. He doesn’t just learn; he plots & plans. He doesn’t just see you, he gets to know you. So call him self-aware, call him almost human. Just don’t call him a toy. He’s a supercomputer on treads. And he’s fun on a whole new level.

Designing a successful robotics platform takes careful consideration of a multitude of factors. These include not only the hardware and software features, but also the way in which users will interact and utilize the platform. We’ve crafted the Cozmo SDK to be powerful but easy to use, complex but not complicated, and versatile enough to be used in industries ranging from entertainment to academia.

Cozmo SDK to be as simple to use as possible, while also giving you access to powerful computer vision and robotics technologies such as facial recognition and path planning. If you have some experience programming or are comfortable using a command-line interface, getting the SDK up and running should be quick and easy.

Required Hardware

It’s helpful to understand how the SDK works before getting started. First, the SDK itself runs on a host computer. Second, your mobile device runs what we refer to as Cozmo’s engine (think of it as his “brains”), and must be connected to your computer via USB. Finally, Cozmo connects to your mobile device via his own secure WiFi network. The following diagram illustrates the full SDK setup:

 

One benefit of this arrangement is that is allows you to connect Cozmo to any number of third-party libraries, via your computer’s network connection.

The full installation instructions will vary depending on your specific hardware setup.

Some SDK users come in with a clear idea of what they want to create, while others simply want to utilize projects made by the community. That’s the great thing about the SDK — it can be a sophisticated development platform, or a way to augment your personal Cozmo experience through others’ creativity and work.

Next Steps

Some SDK users come in with a clear idea of what they want to create, while others simply want to utilize projects made by the community. That’s the great thing about the SDK — it can be a sophisticated development platform, or a way to augment your personal Cozmo experience through others’ creativity and work.

One SDK program that’s especially useful for both developers and casual users is the Cozmo Explorer Tool. It provides a simple interface to, among other things, see Cozmo’s camera view in real time, play any of Cozmo’s hundreds of animations, and control his movement / motors via a traditional WASD keyboard control scheme. This should help you get a sense of Cozmo’s capabilities very quickly.

After getting acquainted with Cozmo and the SDK, it’s really up to you where to go next. You could create a new game, use Cozmo as an actor for your YouTube films, or even tweak our example programs as a way to dive deeper into Cozmo’s advanced features.

Good luck!.
