Leo Rover is an outdoor Robotics Development Kit.
Designed to be reliable, watertight and extendable.
Leo Rover is a great tool for your own robotics solutions development. Leo 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! Leo Rover is a newer version of Turtle Rover and it's even cooler than before! Specifications

How long does it take to assemble the Rover?
It should take you about 8 hours.
What tools and knowledge do I need to assemble the Rover?
Basic workshop tools like soldering iron, metric hex-head, Philips-head and torx screwdrivers and flat wrenches. In case of knowledge, just basic skills and a lot of patience.
Can I write my own software to the Rover?
Yes, of course. The Rover is developer-ready. You can learn more on docs.leorover.tech or on Github. The software is open-source and written the way it's easy to navigate. On top of that our team can provide you support in case something is not clear.
By default Leo Rover is remotely controlled with video streaming and UI ready-to-go. It's not autonomous, but it's autonomy-eady. The software is based on Robot Operating System (ROS) which is known for easiness of autonomy and semi-autonomy features implementation. The simplest way is to add a lidar or streovision camera to enhance the Rover self-navigation and then build your features on top of that. The Rover itself has one front camera and 4 wheel encoders onboard, so it provides video streaming and basic odometry out-of-the-box.
