PLUTO PROJECT

The Embedded Software OVERVIEW

The Plutobot is a 2WD ground bot based on a fork of linorobot, an open platform for ground robot (2WD, 4WD, Meccano, Ackermann) that provides a convenient ROS environment for SLAM (Self localization and mapping) and autonomous navigation.

 

The features added to the original linorobot are:

  • ESC and Brusheless motor controller with hall sensor RPM encoder
  • Pluto ROS node manager
  • Webapp

ROS ENVIRONMENT

A quick start to connect to the robot, assuming you have a working ROS environment setup, is to follow the quick start in the pluto wiki.
