The Clearpath Robotics TurtleBot 4 Mobile Robot is the next-generation robotic platform for learning the Robot Operating System (ROS). With better sensors, more computing power and support for ROS 2, TurtleBot 4 is a fully-extensible reference platform for robotics researchers, developers and educators.
The TurtleBot 4 is equipped with an iRobot® Create3 mobile base, a powerful Raspberry Pi 4 running ROS 2, 2D LiDAR and more. All components have been seamlessly integrated to deliver an out-of-the-box development and learning platform.
It features an OAK-D-PRO 4K RGB autofocus camera. It comes with a top mounting plate, which makes it easy to integrate third-party hardware.
Get Started Quickly
The TurtleBot 4 is the ideal robotics development platform for your custom application. It 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.
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.
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 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 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.
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
For every TurtleBot 4 shipped, a portion of the proceeds goes to the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF) for the continued support of the development, distribution, and adoption of open source software in robotics research and education.
