TurtleBot3 is a new generation mobile robot that’s modular, compact and customizable. Let's explore ROS and create exciting applications for education, research and product development.
TurtleBot3 is a small, affordable, programmable, ROS-based mobile robot for use in education, research, hobby, and product prototyping. The goal of TurtleBot3 is to dramatically reduce the size of the platform and lower the price without having to sacrifice its functionality and quality, while at the same time offering expandability. The TurtleBot3 can be customized into various ways depending on how you reconstruct the mechanical parts and use optional parts such as the computer and sensor. In addition, TurtleBot3 is evolved with cost-effective and small-sized SBC that is suitable for robust embedded system, 360 degree distance sensor and 3D printing technology.
The TurtleBot3’s core technology is SLAM, Navigation and Manipulation, making it suitable for home service robots. The TurtleBot can run SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) algorithms to build a map and can drive around your room. Also, it can be controlled remotely from a laptop, joypad or Android-based smart phone. The TurtleBot can also follow a person’s legs as they walk in a room. Also the TurtleBot3 can be used as a mobile manipulator capable of manipulating an object by attaching a manipulator like OpenMANIPULATOR. The OpenMANIPULATOR has the advantage of being compatible with TurtleBot3 Waffle and Waffle Pi. Through this compatibility can compensate for the lack of freedom and can have greater completeness as a service robot with the the SLAM and navigation capabilities that the TurtleBot3 has.
