The Flipper Rover Pro excels at both indoor and outdoor applications. It can climb most types of stairs, attain a max speed of 2.0m/s (4.5mph), and lasts 5 hours on a single charge. Perfect for research applications or for industrial use, the modular design allows you to easily add the sensors and computer of your choice. The Rover Pro is built military-tough, derived from a tactical robot platform widely used by SWAT teams. Fully compatible with ROS, encoder data, battery state of charge and motor temperature is all available using our ROS driver.  

The front flippers can be rotated up and down which makes climbing stairs easier. The back flippers are fixed in place with a 2 position clutch so they can be rotated by hand for transporting and storage.


What is an internal charger? An internal charger allows the Rover to be charged using a charging dock. Without it the battery must be removed and charged with a wall charger.

Motors

The Rover Pros use high torque 2050KV in-runner brush-less sensored motors. That's a mouthful so lets breakdown what that means. There are two main types of DC motors, brushed and brushless. Brushes are a small strip of metal inside the motor that make contact from the rotor to the stator. These brushes wear out over time. By using brush-less motors it ensures our Rover Pros last a long time. In-runner simply refers to the fact that the rotor is in the middle. 2050KV refers to how fast the motor spins per volt that is applied. Lower values imply that the motor has more torque, and this is one of the lowest KV motors on the market, in fact we customize them to lower the KV rating. Sensored means that there is a built in hall effect sensor which allows the motor to spin start from a stop and spin slower than a sensor-less motor.

Battery

The Rover Pros use a military-grade high density lithium-ion battery pack with built in over-current and under-voltage protection, state of charge monitoring, temperature monitoring, current monitoring, and voltage monitoring. The operating voltage of the battery is 12V-16.8V. If more than 20A is ever pulled from the battery, it will shut itself of safely. All of the data from the battery is exposed with our ROS driver.
