Hi everyone!  A year ago, we began to play with Turtlebot 2 & ROS, and we love it!  Over the last 12 months, we've added a lot of hardware and software components on top of it.  

We would love to share what we've built with the ROS community.  And if you're interested in getting the same unit for your own development or research, we're selling it on Kickstarter now.  

Pick the Research Edition ($1,495)

Hardware specs:
  • Kobuki Mobile Base
  • 3D Depth Camera
  • Inforce 6410 Single-board Computer or better
  • 9" Screen or Larger
  • Servos
  • Microphone
  • Speaker
  • Humidity Sensor, Temperature Sensor, CO2 Meter
If you're doing research in the Internet of Things & Connected Devices space, this Research Robot is perfect for you.  It can interface with almost all the connected devices on the market already.  We have built it as a Smart Home Automation System as well.  It has:
  • Wireless Z-Wave Plus
  • Zigbee
  • BLE
  • Wi-Fi
We'll also release our AI SDK, including:
  • Facial Recognition
  • Object Recognition
  • Speech Recognition
  • Natural Language Processing
  • And more
As well as the remote control apps for the robot, so that you can control the robots from your phone locally or remotely.
  • Android
  • iOS
Of course, we'll pre-install ROS and Ubuntu on the robot.

Any question / comment / advice / feedback is much appreciated.
