Meet MiRo - a welcome arrival from the gentler side of robotics. MiRo is a social robot with an emotional side who wants only to share your personal space, interact with you and to provide emotional engagement and entertainment.

MiRo is based on the simple premise that animals have qualities desirable in today's robots. They are robust, adaptable and good at communicating their feelings.

MiRo is a fully programmable autonomous robot ideal for researchers, teachers and healthcare professionals. MiRo has six senses, eight degrees of freedom, an innovative brain-inspired operating system and a simulation software package suited for developing companion robots.

Consequential Robotics aim to build robots that think and operate very much like animals; from their senses and decision-making processes, all the way through to their bodies and behaviours. And MiRo is particularly suited to robot-human interaction and robot-robot team interaction.


  • Wide-ranging suite of sensors including stereo vision and hearing, ultrasonic ranging, light level sensors and tactile sensors
  • Tail-wagging and drooping, blinking, ear-rotation and head movements are well suited for expressive communication
  • Fast and stable platform works well on most smooth surfaces
  • Excellent battery life (up to 6+ hours between charges depending on batteries used)
  • WiFi and Bluetooth interfaces for on-board programming and/or off-board control components
  • 3 robot simulator for speedy development
  • Multi-processor architecture (3 stacked ARM processors) with useful suite of base behaviours ready-to-go
  • Support for ROS and unique brain-based biomimetic control system
  • Free software development kit and MiRo simulator software using Gazebo
  • High-level control software stored on u-SD card
  • Requires 4x D-cell rechargeable NiMH batteries (not included)

Please note: Any MiRo development will require a computer running Ubuntu 16.04. Other versions of Ubuntu may not be compatible with the MiRo MDK.
