This package provides a completely assembled and configured Robot Operating System (ROS). ROS is a Linux based meta operating system for your robot with a massive open source community. It's flexibility allows compatibility with many standalone Linux machines such as the Nvidia Jetson products. For developers or hobbyists, ROS provides low level device control, tools, and libraries for obtaining, building, writing, and running code. Our goal is to provide a ready to go configured system to give your project a head start. As always, please post on our forums or contact us with your questions.
Below, we have laid out different hardware and software options to integrate into a ROS powered robot. Choosing the correct sensors to supply positioning or obstacle detection, given the platform’s environment, will make navigation and control implementation a much smoother process. For a more in-depth guide to selecting the right configuration can be found on our autonomous support page. For an introduction to ROS, please follow these tutorials. If the individual components are the only desired items, this isn't the package for you. This is meant to be a setup and ready-to-go ROS system using the support and services of SuperDroid Robots.
This robot uses custom length sides and 13 inch tires with IG52 136 RPM motors. We have included everything to make it ready to run including batteries, chargers, and a controller.
