The ROS SLAM Tracked Robot is a programmable autonomous robot built on the Robot Operating System (ROS). It is controlled using a USB gamepad and the ROS Visualization (RViz) application. Equipped with a BeagleBone Black (Rev C) running Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic, it allows for quick and easy changes to the firmware and provides the most flexible platform possible. The on-board ASUS 3-In-1 Wireless Router hosts a WLAN for wireless interfacing or can be configured as a bridge to an existing network.
The sensor array includes the YDLIDAR G4 and IG32 74 RPM gear motors with encoders. This data is paired with a 2D Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) algorithm to produce position and orientation tracking as well as 2D mapping capabilities.
The open chassis and platform design allows for unsurpassed flexibility for your needs, research, and/or design project.
Technical Support: We provide one hour of technical support via phone, chat, or emails to get you set up and going. If you are a beginner with no ROS or Linux experience, we recommend selecting additional support.
Components required to track pulses on 3 encoders in tandem with Sabertooth/SyRen motor controllers.
This is an Enclosed 6-wheel drive robot. Ideally suited for Autonomous Robot Development! It uses six powerful wheelchair motors and the inside robot cavity has plenty of room for electronics.
