The Leo Rover v1.8 Developer Kit features an outdoor robotics kit and is designed to be reliable, watertight and extendable.
It uses 4 in-hub DC motors with 73.2:1 planetary gearbox and 12 CPR encoder and drives on 4 wheels with 130 mm diameter and rubber tires with foam insert (non-pneumatic).
The estimated maximum obstacle size is 70 mm while running circa 4 hrs of nominal driving. While live video streaming you can connect to the Leo Rover up to a distance of 100 meters. Its camera has a resolution of 5 MPx and uses a Fisheye lens with a 170 deg field of view.
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 little differently than seen in the videos and demos.
