Join the Community
With a common platform and open principles the PR2 Community can stop reinventing the wheel and focus on new capabilities in each of our areas of specialization.
The Bleeding Edge
While some code is easily portable between different robots, code that depends on robot specific details will always be difficult to make general. By developing on a PR2, you can run code from other PR2 users unmodified in your own lab, as well as easily sharing code with other researchers.
Scientific Validation in Robotics
PR2 is an open-platform standard so you can easily share your work with the research community. More powerful than a video or publication, others can easily reproduce your results enabling true scientific validation in the robotics community.
