An interesting new open source robot has been launched by a Kickstarter today which takes the form of the Turtle Rover created by Kell Ideas. The robot land drone chassis can be equipped with a wide variety of different modules including a robotic arm, HD camera and more.
The remote-controlled robot rover can be used to explore those small unattainable areas and can be programmed using the revolutionary open platform and adapted to suit your very own requirements.
The on board rechargeable battery is capable of providing up to 4 hours of continuous driving up to a range of 200 m. The watertight rugged design allows you to put the small robotic drone across a wide variety of different terrains without any worry of damaging its electronics. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Turtle Rover and its unique design.
It is an RC-robot that allows you to mount any equipment on and to record in places such as caves, water reservoirs, and ruins. It also gives you the freedom to add extensions for specific usages. This capability is made possible thanks to the mounting surface on the top of the rover, open electronics based on Raspberry Pi, and open-source code.
The rover casing is entirely watertight, as is the robotic arm. This enables the rover to be driven in any kind of weather and even underwater! What’s more, the rover has enough power to drive continuously for up to 4 hours! With our mobile app and long-range communication capabilities, you don’t have to be where Turtle is. The rover streams a live HD camera view and lets you see where you are going, even if it’s out of your sight. The app works on any device that has access to a web browser, including phones and tablets. The range is up to 200 meters (220 yards).
Turtle Rover is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from just $1,347 and delivery expected to take place during June 2018. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
