Drones are amazing but they are much more than just flying vehicles!. We are excited to introduce the first smart robotic spider powered by Snappy Ubuntu Core. A spider that will provide everyone the amazing experience of Ubuntu while giving developers access to the new and exciting app store for robots and drones. Jump now into the future with Erle-Spider!.
ROS is the ultimate SDK for programming robots and our spider supports it at its core. All the behaviors, dynamical model, sensors are ROS-based.
We are excited to see what you can do with Erle-Spider thereby we'll release and document all our the code so that you can hack around.
The same way it happened with smartphones, Linux will conquer the world of robotics. We side with Canonical and provide a secure, upgradable and ready to use Ubuntu robot.
