RoboSavvy Self-balancing robotic platform

A robust, reliable and flexible self-balancing mobile platform for robotic applications.

This platform provides researchers, engineers and hackers the ability to easily design their robotic application on top of a modular hardware interface. The user can quickly develop and integrate their own hardware, integrate sensors, manipulators, other types of payload and third party equipment on top of the platform.


  • Self-balancing mobile platform for loads from 10 kg up to 100 kg.
  • Integrated PC running Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic.
  • Urban dweller and countryside explorer.
  • Dual control:
    1. RC input
    2. Ethernet protocol
  • ROS packages for communication, visualization and simulation.


You can find tutorials on how to configure your software to run the platform and on how to use the simulated RoboSavvy's self-balance platform.

All packages were developed and tested on Ubuntu 16.04 + ROS Kinetic.
