Turtle is an outdoor Robotics Development Kit.

Designed to be reliable, watertight and extendable.

Turtle is a great tool for your own robotics solutions development. Now you don’t need to redesign the mobility base every time you want to build a customized robot.
Turtle Rover provides a sturdy platform with remote control, video streaming and simple autonomy capabilities.
You can finally stop thinking about the basics and spend the time and energy on your own research and the job to be done!

Mission center in your hands.

Drive Turtle remotely with any web-enabled device (Android/Windows/macOS).
The Rover sets its own access point and all you need to do is to connect to Turtle Rover 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.

Upgrade Turtle to your own needs.

Turtle can carry up to 5 kg (11 lbs.) of additional equipment. With RaspberryPi 3 as the main computer and ROS out of the box, it fits almost any sensor, LiDAR or camera module available on the market.
Find use of all the projects that you already thought of and implement them in real applications.

Turtle is open source

Turtle is designed to be useful in all the real-life solutions.
