Rotundus – GroundBot

Facts Large

Rotundus.

GroundBot™ is a robotic mobile platform that hosts cameras and sensors.
• This robust, lightweight, sealed sphere boasts impressive off-road performance. It also moves virtually silently.
• GroundBot™ can be remote controlled by hand or programmed to navigate by GPS.
• Augmented Reality User Interface is highly intuitive, boosting operator alertness and ensures full control.

Cute!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Looks like the little brother of Rover (from the original TV show The Prisoner)

  2. Haha, I just finished up a defense conference where they had this guy on display.

  3. I created something similar 15 years ago for my final engineering project in college. I wanted to mass produce it, but it was patented at the time. Some time after that patent ran out, you started seeing lots of these pop up all over. The cute-est one I’ve seen to date was the white camera ball that some polar bear cubs and mom completely destroyed.
