TurtleBot 4 is the newest addition to the Clearpath Robotics range, an open-source mobile robot available in two versions: TurtleBot 4 Standard and TurtleBot 4 Lite. Both are equipped with an iRobot® Create 3 mobile platform, an educational robot comprising a ROS 2 programmable Raspberry Pi4 computer, a 2D LiDAR, an OAK-D camera and much, much more…
A mobile robot offering advanced features
Ultra-fast start-up with ROS 2
TurtleBot 4 ships fully assembled with ROS 2 (open-source middleware for robotics) pre-installed and configured, along with detailed user documentation, an Ignition Gazebo simulation model, demo code and a suite of tutorials, allowing you to rapidly get to grips with your TB4 and begin working on applications!
Numerous sensorsTurtleBot 4 comes with an array of built-in sensors for various robotics applications. These on-board sensors include:
- An OAK-D spatial AI stereo camera
- An RPLIDAR-A1 2D LiDAR
- An IMU
- An optical floor tracking sensor
- Wheel encoders
- Plus: a series of infrared, cliff, bump, slip detection sensors, and more…
The data from all these sensors is available in the form of ROS topics via the network-connected ROS 2 API.
A robust mobile platform
TurtleBot 4 is assembled on the iRobot® Create 3 educational robot, a sturdy mobile platform with numerous sensors that ensure accurate localisation and positioning. It has a standalone ROS interface, a maximum payload of 15 kg, and a top speed of 0.306 m/s. In addition, unlike the other TurtleBot robots, it has integrated batteries and a charging dock, guaranteeing up to 4 hours of autonomy!
An educational robot for learning robotics
TurtleBot 4 comes with a complete set of courseware material (content, lesson plans, tutorials, sample tests), for easily incorporating TurtleBot into your robotics training courses. It’s an easy-to-use, open-source platform that both teachers and students can use to work on many different projects.
The next step
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can easily expand the capabilities of your TurtleBot 4, by adding your own sensors for example. It offers USB power ports, power breakouts and a top mounting plate for easily integrating third-party hardware. The standard version also has a programmable LCD OLED screen, which can display information from any ROS topic. The possibilities are endless!
An open-source platform
TurtleBot 4 has a thriving on-line open-source community, which you can test and add to. You can even create your own. In addition, part of the proceeds of every TurtleBot 4 shipped goes to Open Robotics for the continued support of this open-source initiative.
