Pioneer P3-DX by Adept: a star for your lab

The Pioneer P3-DX research mobile robot by Adept is a differential-drive platform designed to last: its lacquered aluminium makes it lightweight and rugged – and capable of negotiating all obstacle courses in style.

Like other research robots, this one benefits from a complete ROS for the purposes of programming at will, thanks to the Pioneer SDK and its 5 dedicated tools:

  • ARIA and its rich C++ code library (Linux and Windows compatible);
  • MobileEyes, which allows you to remotely steer and monitor your robot;
  • MobileSim, which simulates all the possible configurations;
  • Mapper 3 for mapping functions; and
  • SONARNL, which provides sonar-based approximate localisation and navigation.


Possible uses and customisation of the P3-DX robot

With the P3-DX, it’s possible to carry out a wide range of experiments in a lab or a workshop, ranging from autonomous navigation, manipulation and mapping to remote-controlled applications. This versatile platform opens up the way to other possibilities thanks to the various software and hardware options available:

  • software applications for a better control and precision of the robot’s movements, and for colour and speech recognition;
  • hardware options to increase mobility, precision and interactivity – robotised grippers and arms (with integrated support), video camera, ultrasonic motion sensor, joystick, gyroscope, and so on.
