TurtleBot 4

ROBOTICS LEARNING PLATFORM

TurtleBot 4 is the next-generation of the world’s most popular open source robotics platform for education and research, offering better computing power, better sensors and a world class user experience at an affordable price point.

TurtleBot 4 comes in two models – TurtleBot 4 Standard and TurtleBot 4 Lite. Both are equipped with an iRobot® Create3 mobile base, a powerful Raspberry Pi 4 running ROS 2, OAK-D spatial AI stereo camera, 2D LiDAR and more. All components have been seamlessly integrated to deliver an out-of-the-box development and learning platform. Tap into the thriving open source ROS developer community and get started learning robotics on day one.

Get Started Fast

TurtleBot 4 ships fully assembled with ROS 2 pre-installed and configured along with detailed user documentation, an Ignition Gazebo simulation model, demo code and a suite of tutorials, allowing you to get started quickly with developing robotics applications.

Sensor Packed

TurtleBot 4 comes with an array of integrated sensors ideal for many robotics applications. Onboard sensors include the OAK-D spatial AI stereo camera, 2D Lidar, IMU, optical floor tracking sensor, wheel encoders, infrared, cliff, bump, slip detection and more. All onboard sensors are available as ROS topics via the network-connected ROS 2 API.

Modern Mobility

TurtleBot 4 is built on the iRobot® Create 3 educational robot – a sturdy mobile base which provides an array of intelligent sensors for accurate localization and positioning, a 9kg payload capacity out-of-the-box and up to 15 kg with a custom configuration, and a top speed of .306 m/s. The Create 3 has a standalone ROS interface and unlike previous TurtleBots, it includes integrated batteries and a charging dock.

Build & Expand

Once you’ve mastered the basics, easily expand the capabilities of TurtleBot 4 by adding your own sensors and custom payloads. Accessible USB ports, power breakouts and a top mounting plate make it easy to integrate third-party hardware and components. With ROS 2 and its support for micro-ROS, expansion and integration of embedded microcontrollers is made easier than ever.

Classroom Ready

TurtleBot 4 comes with comprehensive courseware material, including lesson plans, lecture content, tutorials and sample tests, allowing educators to easily incorporate TurtleBot into robotics training courses.

Support Open Source

TurtleBot is an open source platform and you can get the design and software here. You’re encouraged to try it out, extend it, or build your own. For every TurtleBot 4 shipped, a portion of the proceeds goes to the Open Robotics for the continued support of the development, distribution, and adoption of open source software in robotics research and education.
