It is a RC-robot that allows you to mount any equipment on and to record in places such as caves, water reservoirs, and ruins. It also gives you the freedom to add extensions for specific usages.
Turtle Rover is not just another Raspberry Pi based robot but it’s an open platform that provides its user with several modules to adapt it to respective needs. You can convert Turtle into a land drone or add a DSLR camera so that you can explore bunkers.
One of the coolest features of this Rover is that you can even configure a Kinect to make the Turtle follow you.
Use Turtle as a development platform: add your own modules, electronics and modify software. You can get this rover from Kickstarter only, though.
From 2012, Team Turtle has been involved in the development of Mars rover prototypes at the Wroclaw University of Technology. The rovers performed with top scores during the University Rover Challenges of Mars Society, worldwide. The Rover team took a leap of faith in sending their Project FREDE experiment to the stratosphere with the support of ESA, DLR and SSC. Their team members also helped to design and manufacture electronic enclosures for the DREAM Project that was sent to space with the REXUS rocket.
