Our
Story

Intro

Our goal is to make reliable and rugged mobile robots easier to build.

Rover Robotics is a partnership between RoboteX (provider of market leading robots for public safety) and the founder of Proto Labs (the leader in rapid prototype parts manufacturing). We believe that in the near future, robots will become important in every facet of our daily lives, going beyond just vacuuming the floor and powering factories. Our products help robotics researchers, product developers and engineers build highly capable, professional-grade solutions for outdoor mobile robot applications.

Products

We design affordable, high-quality robot platforms and accessories.

Our products are built on over 12 years’ experience making robots for law enforcement, military and other public safety personnel that perform some of the hardest missions in the world. And our team has decades of experience in high-quality part manufacturing for tens of thousands of applications. We know how to make tough, waterproof, high-performance robots.

Our flagship product, Open Rover is a professional-grade mobile robot for researchers and product developers. It is highly rugged, highly mobile and modular.
