  • Leo Rover v1.8 Developer Kit w/ Extra Battery
  • Payload Capacity: upto 5 kg
  • Designed to be reliable, watertight, and extendable
  • Provides up to 4 hours of continuous driving
  • Features a 5MP camera and live streaming
  • Open-source and ROS-based

The Leo Rover v1.8 Developer Kit w/ Extra Battery is designed to be reliable, watertight, and extendable. It uses 4 in-hub DC motors with a 73.2:1 planetary gearbox and 12 CPR encoders and drives on 4 wheels with 130 mm diameter and rubber tires with foam insert (non-pneumatic).

The built-in camera has a resolution of 5 MP and uses a Fisheye lens with a 170-degree field of view. The rover’s intuitive live-streaming software was inspired by the missions carried out by exploration robots on Mars.

It is more compact and lighter than most, the Leo Rover mobile robot consists of a rectangular platform mounted on a 4-wheel drive chassis, capable of adapting to the most difficult terrains as it's designed to be reliable, watertight, and extendable. Open-source reversible software enables you to go deep into a core and gives you the opportunity to freely try new ideas.

This Raspberry Pi mobile robot can generate a WiFi hotspot to which you can then connect simply using your tablet, mobile phone, or computer. You will then benefit from a 2.4 GHz wireless connection and be able to control your mobile robot remotely on Windows, macOS, Android, and Linux.

By default, Leo Rover is remotely controlled with video streaming and UI ready-to-go. It's not autonomous, but it's autonomy-ready. The software is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and Robot Operating System (ROS) which is known for easiness of autonomy and semi-autonomy features implementation.

The simplest way is to add a lidar or stereovision camera to enhance the Rover self-navigation and then build your features on top of that. The Rover itself has one front camera and 4 wheel encoders on board, so it provides video streaming and basic odometry out-of-the-box.

Please note: As the manufacturer constantly works on improving the design, the Rover you receive may look and act a little differently than seen in the videos and demos.
