1. About CORE2

Husarion CORE2 is a development board for Internet connected automation & robotic devices. With CORE2, you will quickly create both simple and complex robots, home automation devices and many more.

1.1. Features

  • STM32F4 microcontroller
    • Built-in ports for DC motors with encoders
    • Variety of interfaces for literally any sensor or external module
  • Connect your robot to the Internet in your way - you can use:
    • ESP8266 Wi-Fi module
    • external single board computer (e.g. RaspberryPi)
    • smartphone/tablet
  • Powerful development framework: based on Real-Time Operating System, with strong support for hardware peripherals: DMAs, interrupt handling etc. It sounds complicated - but isn’t thanks to simple C++ API
  • Programmable through Husarion cloud WebIDE - you don’t need to install anything on your computer. A web browser is enough
  • You can not only stream data through the Internet, but also video - add teleconferencing to your constructions with a single line of code
  • Web User Interface for your device. Share it the same way you share a photo to your friends
  • Plenty of examples at husarion.com makes starting building a piece of cake.
