Title (EN) SELF-MOVING EDUCATIONAL TOY
(FR) JOUET ÉDUCATIF AUTOMOTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an educational toy (1) comprising a self-moving vehicle (10) adapted to move and steer freely on a two-dimensional surface (2) such as a table leaf. A tangible, three-dimensional marker (20) comprising at least one RFID tag (21) is used to wirelessly trigger a specific action of the vehicle (10), e.g. turn 90 degrees right, when the vehicle (10) enters a readout range of the marker (20). The marker (20) can be placed freely on the surface (2) and cannot be overrun by the vehicle (10). Thus, the vehicle (10) is instructed to perform a certain action, e.g. take a 90 degrees left turn, using the marker (20). Then, the vehicle (10) moves forward until a next marker (20') is found from which the vehicle (10) receives its next instruction. This enables the educational toy (1) to teach programming during play, which reduces the risk that children will lose interest.
(FR) L'invention concerne un jouet éducatif (1) comprenant un véhicule automoteur (10) conçu pour se déplacer et se diriger librement sur une surface bidimensionnelle (2) telle qu'un plateau de table. Un marqueur tridimensionnel tangible (20) comprenant au moins une étiquette RFID (21) est utilisé pour déclencher sans fil une action spécifique du véhicule (10), par exemple tourner de 90 degrés à droite, lorsque le véhicule (10) entre dans une plage d'indication du marqueur (20). Le marqueur (20) peut être placé librement sur la surface (2) et le véhicule (10) ne peut pas passer dessus. Ainsi, le véhicule (10) reçoit l'instruction d'effectuer une certaine action, par exemple faire un virage de 90 degrés à gauche, à l'aide du marqueur (20). Ensuite, le véhicule (10) avance jusqu'à ce qu'il rencontre un marqueur suivant (20') duquel le véhicule (10) reçoit son instruction suivante. Ceci permet au jouet éducatif (1) d'enseigner la programmation pendant le jeu, ce qui réduit le risque que les enfants se désintéressent.
