We took the #1 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 public safety) and the founder of Protolabs (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 is 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 - $75k. 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.
We dream of a day when building robots is as easy as building gaming PC's
We believe the future of mobile robotics is highly modular components from a variety of vendors that can easily be assembled with moderate technical skills like modern day gaming PCs. We plan to lead the way to this future.
