AI and robotics innovators today face many barriers to testing and prototyping new concepts. Turtle is the answer: an open-source robotics platform that provides makers, academic researchers, and SMEs all the tools they need to deploy robots in the field, along with a marketplace of components and software to mix and match. Turtle offers a robust and extensible mobile robotic chassis, and a community that fosters and tests new ideas for software and hardware. Don’t be mistaken: Turtle is no toy. It’s the Raspberry Pi of robotics.
The Turtle team won 2nd place in the University Rover Challenge in 2013, and first place in the European Rover Challenge in 2014.
