The TurtleBot gives a new dimension of possibilities to your Kinect hacking: the ability to drive.


TurtleBot can explore your house on its own, build 3D pictures, bring you food, take panoramas, and more.

TurtleBot comes with an open-source SDK based on ROS to help you develop applications right out of the box.


The TurtleBot SDK integrates all the software you need to get TurtleBot running and comes with advanced capabilities like mapping and navigation.

TurtleBot comes with the best low-cost hardware components to give you a capable, autonomous platform for developing robot applications. The Kobuki base, Kinect, and netbook with TurtleBot software installed are all integrated together to get the most out of each.


Multiple mounting locations let you customize TurtleBot to your own needs.

The TurtleBot lets you tap into the creativity and support of the ROS Community. Find out more at TurtleBot.com.


Thanks to this community, there are thousands of software packages for robotics you can use with ROS. You can tap into powerful computer vision libraries like OpenCV and PCL, find drivers for hardware add-ons, and test advanced research algorithms.
