Introducing SentiBotics Mobile Robotics Development Kit from Neurotechnology

vigation, object recognition and grasping algorithms, it also allows users to immediately concentrate on their own algorithm development."

SentiBotics robot hardware includes the following components:

  • Tracked platform, capable of carrying a payload of up to 10kg.
  • Modular robotic arm, capable of lifting objects up to 0.5kg.
  • Two 3D cameras that allow the robot to "see" and recognize objects at a range of 0.15 to 3.5 meters.
  • Powerful onboard computer (Intel NUC i5 computer with 8GB of RAM, 64 GB SSD drive, 802.11N wireless network interface).
  • Durable 20AH lithium battery with charger.
  • Control pad.

SentiBotics software includes source code with the following components that are tuned to work with the SentiBotics hardware platform:

  • Manual control of all degrees of movement via a control pad. For example, the user can manually drive the robot, rotate the joints of robotic arm and grasp objects.
  • Manual on-line environment map building. This functionality allows the user to build a map of the environment while driving the robot manually (via joystick). Among other things, the map may then be used by the robot for autonomous navigation to that previously-visited place.
  • Environment exploration with obstacle avoidance. When switched on, environment exploration mode drives the robot randomly, continuously trying to recognize and avoid obstacles.
  • Object learning and recognition. The user may teach the robot to recognize a previously unknown object by placing it in front of the robot's 3D camera "eyes" and assigning an identifier to it (e.g. "cup"). Once learned, the robot can recognize the object from different angles and distances.
  • Autonomous navigation to a specified, previously-visited place.  This functionality allows the robot to travel by itself, using
