The easiest way to program and customize your own robot
More compact and lighter than most, the Leo Rover mobile robot consists of a rectangular platform mounted on a 4-wheel drive chassis, capable of adapting to the most difficult terrains as it's designed to be reliable, watertight, and extendable. Open-source reversible software enables you to go deep into a core and gives you the opportunity to freely try new ideas.
A WiFi hotspot and live video streaming
This Raspberry Pi mobile robot can generate a WiFi hotspot to which you can then connect simply using your tablet, mobile phone, or computer. You will then benefit from a 2.4 GHz wireless connection and be able to control your mobile robot remotely on Windows, macOS, Android, and Linux. Then launch the live video streaming to see through your rover’s eyes thanks to its onboard camera! The camera has a resolution of 5 MPx and uses a Fisheye lens with a 170 deg field of view. The rover’s intuitive live streaming software was inspired by the missions carried out by exploration robots on Mars.

For easier development ROS on your device is highly recommended.
Built on a Raspberry Pi, Leo Rover offers a wide range of connectors allowing you to add extra modules. As Raspberry Pi is synonymous with open source, you can develop your own DIY Martian rover as you like.
Leo Rover runs on the Robot Operating System (ROS) – known for easiness of both autonomy and semi-autonomy features implementation. What’s more, the robot is designed to be customized as you see fit, as it’s equipped with a mounting platform to which you can attach various components.
As we're constantly improving the design, the Rover you receive may look and act a little different than seen in the videos and demos. Don't worry though, our team will help you customize it to your own needs.
