Our
Story

Background

We took the #1 Police and Public safety robot and made it compatible with ROS and open source software

Rover Robotics was founded in 2018 as a joint venture between RoboTex (a leader in making robots for police and public safety) and the founder of Proto Labs (a leader in rapid prototype manufacturing). We took Robotex's Avatar III robot and made it fully compatible with ROS so that anyone can leverage its extremely rugged design.

Our Goal

To create reliable and affordable robotic hardware

You may have noticed that we are one of the only robotics companies in our class that lists our pricing online, and that we are significantly cheaper robots of similar quality that sell for $12k - $20k. That's no accident. We are obsessed with driving down the cost of robotic hardware because we believe that cost is the main barrier preventing robots from pushing out of the high-value, highly limited roles they are being used for today.

The Future

We want robots to be as affordable and feature rich as modern day laptops and smartphones

Only then can we see the full potential of the great open source software being written currently. We believe the future of robotic software is open source and free of vendor lock in!
