A robust, reliable and flexible self-balancing mobile platform for robotic applications.

This platform provides researchers, engineers and hackers the ability to easily design their robotic application on top of a modular hardware interface. The user can quickly develop and integrate their own hardware, integrate sensors, manipulators, other types of payload and third party equipment on top of the platform.

All these great features top off with an open software architecture and simple control method, complete with an available software framework and seamless ROS integration.

Suited to a great variety of applications where mobility, adaptability are required:

  • Research and development
  • Indoor/outdoor navigation and path planning
  • Personal and service robotics
  • Human interaction
  • Remote controlled and tele-operated applications

With the help from Robosavvy engineers, you have total freedom to choose and integrate your sensors, perception and localization systems or other hardware for your specific application.

The Self-Balance Robotic Platform lets you put your robot sensors, computers and actuators at any payload of up to 100kg and at any height (center-of-mass). We did the heavy-lifting of the complex algorithms necessary to ensure stable self balancing. All you have to do: – mount your robot system (sensors, actuators, batteries, cpu etc.) on top of the platform (we can place holes on the top plate according to your specifications) – communicate with the platform using ROS pub/sub interface over Ethernet

communications protocol allows you to reconfigure your robot with new payload and new CM height in runtime (for example when your humanoid robot upper body that needs to lift a load with his hand both payload and CM change several times per second)
