ROS-based Robot


TurtleBot is a low-cost, personal robot kit with open-source software.
With the TurtleBot robot simulation, you can perform the same tasks without the risk of damaging your real robot. Use the TurtleBot robot simulation to learn ROS and test robot algorithms. Once you have your code working in the simulation, directly execute your code using the real TurtleBot, with minimal or no changes required!

About TurtleBot


TurtleBot was created at Willow Garage by Melonee Wise and Tully Foote in November 2010. With TurtleBot, you’ll be able to build a robot that can drive around your house, see in 3D, and have enough horsepower to create exciting applications.
