ROSbot

ROS Software Maintainer: Husarion contact@husarion.com https://husarion.com/

A robot with LiDAR, designed to learn and develop ROS projects, with a dedicated tutorial available. A good base for adding extensions (sensors, grippers etc.) thanks to many interfaces available on the rear panel.

Tutorials

The complete set of ROS tutorials, dedicated for ROSbot but includes

  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

All these tutorials are dedicated for ROSbot. You can build ROSbot thanks to assembly instructions available on Hackaday or you can buy ROSbot here: https://www.crowdsupply.com/husarion/core2/updates/new-ros-tutorials (only until 08/05/2017).

Hardware

ROSbot is an open source, mobile robot platform containing:

  • USB camera
  • 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)

The hardware platform is described on Hackaday.io: https://hackaday.io/project/21885-rosbot-autonomous-robot-platform

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.
