GoPiGo3 is a differential drive robot manufactured by Dexter Industries, that offers a wide range of sensors and actuators to assemble on it. The robot is intended to be used as an educational kit for learning about both robotics and programming, two complementary perspectives that clearly show the transversal knowledge you should acquire to become a robotics engineer.

ROS GoPiGo3 basic bundle. It includes the following packages:
gopigo3_description provides the URDF model of the robot that you can use to perform simulations.
gopigo3_fake allows to experiment with the robot without needing the physical one. Yo can, for example, explore its kinematics with RViz tool
gopigo3_bringup allows the user to operate the physical robot including the distance sensor and the servomotors of the wheels.
