Design, Simulate, Build

Real-time control with ROS and a Raspberry Pi.

An Open Design

Bobble-Bot was designed to be modular and easy for you to extend. The robot structure is composed of 3D printable parts. Initial assembly takes about 30 minutes. He is small, light-weight, and easy to handle. The robot measures in at 185mm x 222mm x 120mm without extra peripherals and weighs about 3 lbs.

Bobble-Bot Simulator

Get ready to learn Python and C++ programming by using Bobble-Bot's free and open-source 3D simulator. Explore the classic inverted pendulum control problem like never before. Test your control algorithms safely in simulation before deploying them to the hardware!

Visualize Real-Time Data

Thanks to the Raspberry Pi and ROS infrastructure, Bobble-Bot's internal state can be easily visualized and updated. Use a convenient Python API to plot live data and send commands to Bobble-Bot. We also provide a collection of open-source Jupyter Notebooks that can be used to analyze and post process hardware and simulation data.

A Unique and Powerful Software Stack

ROS

Robot Operating System
