Co Space Robotics


Published on

Co-Space Robotics is a new robotic concept that combines and connects robotics in a real, physical space
with a 3D virtual-reality world in cyber-space. It consists of a real robot, virtual robot and simulator. It allows
users to create and program robots in both virtual and real environments using the same programming logic.
Designed to integrate infocomm technology, digital game based learning with educational robotics to interest,
excite and engage younger generations into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), it is
an educational platform that is a fun and engaging way for young people to develop computational thinking
skills and early training in programming and algorithm development.

Co Space Robotics

  1. 1. Educational Robotics Final Presentation, 24th Oct 2016, by NUS LLP Team: Jim Gan (EL1) Raymond Tan (EL2) Chris Lo (Mentor) Total # of interviews: 27
  2. 2. Educational Robotics, CoSpaceTM platform • Use of virtual & real robots for education By Experienced Team Robotics development experience, since 2001. • Robotics & Maker Academy (RMA), jointly funded by IMDA (previously known as IDA) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) • Funded, Developed, Tested and Adopted • CoSpaceTM technology adopted by primary and secondary schools
  3. 3. CoSpace Educational Robotics 1)Users: Training continuity fr om drag-&-drop novice into c oding professional 2) Buyers: Low cost, customis able, scalable. 2.School wishin g to position as robotics & cod ing as a specialist niche o attra ct IT savvy students 1. Users: for teachers: nee d to training students with budget constraints and ne ed scalable platform soluti on 2. Buyer/Influencers: S chool management . 3. Us ers (teachers/students/clu b), Buyers (Management HODs) 1. Robotics or Infocomm C lub 2. Talks for teachers & HODs for curriculum 3. M OE Applied Learning Progr amme ALP Get: Reach out to current CoSpace Pilot Schools via Talk Keep:Co-create the va lue to meet their needs. 3. Grow: Ownership of custo mised solutions, upsell tra nslational skills 1. Demo/Sell pilot school’s achievements 2. Propose training progra mmes that fit into the nee ds of the respective school 3. Prepare & Deliver well 1. Suppliers: hardware ven dor 2. Robotics & Pedagog y Competent Trainers 3. 3. Agencies funding /grant fo r training the trainers 1. Schools 2. Vendors 3. S ME Trainers 4. SkillsFuture Agencies 1. Tools for the training: hardware, laptops 2. Availabili ty of trainers 3. Online training video materials to redu ce the trainers hours needed 4. Curriculum developme nt subject matter expert Pricing A: $320 per teacher (robot kit shared 1:1), 12 hours (1.5days), inclusive robot kit @$150. $6,400 per class of 20 Pricing B: $240/teacher (robot kit shared 2:1) School’s 20 teachers, $4,800 per class of 20 teachers, 10 robotics kit sets, Pricing C: $162/teacher: (robot kit: virtual only) no physical robotics kit set, $3,240 per class of 20 teachers Robotics PDP for Teachers – 3 Parts Programme (4 hrs CoSpace, 4 hrs Applied Curriculum, 4 hrs Applied Robotics & IoT Smart environment). Licensed CoSpace software, physical robotic kit set Business Model Canvas, version 1. What we Thought: Hypotheses: (a) Teachers keen to have robotics as educational tools to enrich curriculum & for applied robotics project. (b) Customer segments: users and buyers
  4. 4. Users Customers: School Mgmt, Govt Agencies Vendors: Merchandiser. Trainers. Other events (NJRC) Int’l Schools Teachers Students Parents School, Agencies Vendors Int’l Schools 1. Ease Teachers into the “TE” in STEM Education 2. Prefers self- learning platform for students 3. Tech = LMS! 1. Student can afford Arduino 2. Motivated into engineering courses 1. Parents buys Minds torm. 2. Advertising o pportunities. 3. Paren ts choice of school’s n iche influence school CCA. 1. Scalable, affor dable, ‘inclusive’ open platform 2. Online, 24/7 1. Ways to access education market. 2. Platform to display/ promote products 3. NJRC Nat’l Junior Robotics C. Transnational Students prefers - Learning online, 24/7 is an asset Validation Got out of the Building. Total # of interviews: 27. What we found:
  5. 5. Mapped a “value-stream” on the use of technology (not only robotics) for education.
  6. 6. Specifications Metrics Value “TE” in STEM: Steep Learning, Boring Exciting experiential learning Scaffold skills learning structure Learning outcome at each stage Open Platform: scalable 5 students club> cohort >school Connected platform (Forum) Collaborative, team-centric Developers (App, curriculum) Promote innovations Online affordable access 24/7 accessible anywhere Dived deep, more research: a) Develop educational robotics specs and value, (b) created a matrix on competitive robotics platforms Customer Segments: Multi-Sided Market Online Users @School, @Home Advertisers, Merchandisers Agencies: MOE Sch Management VEX LEGO CoSpace RoboCup
