We currently enjoy the company of 3 robotic platforms, 1 robotic arm, 1 total station and 13 Turtlebots:
This portable autonomous surface vessel from Clearpath Robotics has a laser rangefinder (Sick LMS111), RTK-GPS, IMU. Depending on the projects, it can be equipped with wide-angle front-looking camera (Pointgrey) or pan-tilt-zoom camera (Axis). Low-level computation is done in an Intel Atom, high-level computation in an NVIDIA Jetson Xavier.
Husky is an unmanned robotic development platform with a sensor suite depending on the project: 2D LIDAR Sick LMS111, 3D LIDAR Ouster 16, 3D LIDAR RS-BPearl, and several cameras. It is also equipped with an RTK-GPS, an IMU, and wheel encoders. Low-level computation is done in an Intel Atom, high-level computation in an NVIDIA Jetson Xavier.
The Jaco2 device from Kinova Robotics is a lightweight, three-finger autonomous robotic arm that is mounted on the husky. It enables up to 16 different movements on 6 axis and a reach of 900mm.
Turtlebots are personal robots that are able to autonomously drive around surfaces, see in 3D, and have enough horsepower to create exciting applications. They are equipped with Microsoft Kinect and a computer webcam.
A Leica Total Station M60 allows us to track precisely our robots, and to create high quality 3D-scans.
