ROSbot 2.0 is a successor of ROSbot - an autonomous, open source robot platform - now with a RGBD camera and improved design. It can be used as a learning platform for ROS, with a dedicated tutorial, as well as a base for a variety of robotic applications.

Tutorials

The complete set of ROS tutorials, dedicated for ROSbot 2.0:

  1. ROS introduction

  2. Creating nodes

  3. Simple kinematics for mobile robot

  4. Visual object recognition

  5. Running ROS on multiple machines

  6. SLAM navigation

  7. Path planning

  8. Unknown environment exploration

The new tutorials will be available soon.

You can build ROSbot thanks to assembly instructions available on Hackaday, or buy a new ROSbot 2.0 in Husarion store

Hardware

ROSbot is an open source, mobile robot platform containing:

  • RGBD camera Orbbec Astra
  • Laser scanner 360° RPLiDAR A2
  • Solid aluminum cover
  • Wi-Fi antenna
  • Orientation sensor (MPU-9250)
  • 4x IR distance sensors (Sharp GP2Y0A41SK0F 40-300mm)
  • 2x left & 2x right DC motors with quadrature encoders

  • Husarion CORE2-ROS controller (with ASUS Tinker Board inside)
  • a lot of interfaces on rear panel

Controller

ROSbot is based on the Husarion CORE2-ROS controller, which consists of 2 boards:

  • a low-level controller (Husarion CORE2) based on STM32F407ZGT6 microcontroller, with motor drivers and many interfaces available on board,
  • a single board computer (ASUS Tinker Board) running with Ubuntu and ROS.

The Husarion CORE2 works with hFramework, a C++ library that works as an high-efficient abstraction layer for hardware interfaces and is based on RTOS.

The Ubuntu image for ASUS Tinker Board, with ROS pre-installed is available here:

This image is prepared for quick start with tutorials.
