Designed to be reliable, watertight and extendable, Turtle is a great tool for your own robotics solutions development.
Now you don’t need to think of rebuilding the mobility base every time you want to build a customized robot. Turtle Rover provides you a sturdy platform with remote control and streaming capabilities. With no need of thinking about the basics, you can now spend all the time and energy you saved to focus on your own research and the job to be done!
Why would you use a specialized controller when the best quality device is the one you already have?
Steer Turtle remotely on any Android/Windows/macOS device with a web browser. You don’t need the Internet access though, the Rover sets its own access point and all you need to make it work is to connect to Turtle WiFi.
In fact, the control panel design was inspired by real space mission interfaces. A simple and intuitive design makes driving Turtle Rover even more enjoyable.
Turtle can carry up to 10 kg (22 lbs.) of additional equipment. With RaspberryPi 3 as the main computer, it fits almost every of-the-shelf sensor, LiDAR or camera module available on the market.
Find uses of all the projects already developed by RaspberryPi community and implement them in real use cases using Turtle.
