LIMO Modular Robot With LiDAR, Wi-F9, Infrared Camera and More
Meet LIMO, which is a new modular robot packed with a lot of functionality sensors and steering modes giving an open-source design that can be modified, updated, and programmed to learn more about robotics. LIMO is powered by an NVIDIA Jetson Nano Processor giving the ideal platform for learning more about AI and robotics thanks to its 360° Scanning LiDAR, RealSense infrared camera, and touch screen display.
Omni Wheel Steering Mode can realize translation and rotation in place in any direction, including straight, oblique, horizontal, S-shaped travel, zero-radius rotation, narrow and irregular spaces at any angle, etc.
Four-wheel Differential Steering Mode can tackle all complex terrain. Driving on any surface from smooth concrete to sandy roads is possible.
Ackermann Steering Mode is highly similar to automobile steering which turns the inner and outer wheels at the appropriate angles for more stable steering. This system is customizable based on the steering speed.
Tracked Steering Mode uses a large contact with the ground and adjusts steering speeds of the left and right sides for multiple surfaces such as smooth roads, sandy and rugged roads, slopes, etc.
Early bird pledges are now available from roughly $394 or £292, giving a considerable discount of about 27% off the recommended retail price, while the Kickstarter crowdfunding is underway.
“The portable LIMO is an incredibly versatile and multifunctional robotic platform for beginners as well as advanced programmers. It uses the modular programming languages ROS 1 or ROS 2 to achieve many functional purposes including Simultaneous Localization and Mapping(SLAM), autonomous path planning and navigation, obstacle avoidance, and object detection for all AI robots and unmanned driving applications.”
If the LIMO campaign raises its expected pledge goal, worldwide shipping is supposed to take place around January 2022. To learn more about the LIMO modular robot project watch the video below.
“Four steering modes make LIMO substantially superior to other robots in its class. The available modes are: Omni Wheel Steering, Tracked Steering, Four-Wheel Differential Steering and Ackermann Steering. Switching between modes can be completed in just 3 mins and they can meet the requirements for different environments including indoor and outdoor scenarios.”
