We have tested the Double Robotics telepresence robot in the past, but I’m trying to avoid going down a bit of an open source telepresence rabbit hole today. Documenting some sites and code to explore later…
Double Robotics: Double gives you a physical presence at work or school when you can’t be there in person. (not open-source)
warp-os: open-source telepresence robot operating system
Building a Telepresence Robot Based on an open-source Robot Operating System and Android
OhmniLabs Launches First Open Telepresence Robotics Platform
Willow Garage Creates Awesome Open Source Telepresence Robots
world’s cheapest telepresence robot project
George Mason is sharing the details of an
automated food delivery service on campus.
A fleet of Starship Robots
These are the same bots that had at one point been slated to be
navigating Austin’s streets. Good to see Starship Technologies still plugging away at the problem.
Still curious how we could use the work in this area to change the way libraries transport our volumes around our campuses.
Adding a link to Amazon Scout:
Meet Scout: Field testing a new delivery system with Amazon Scout.
And also to LG CLOI:
A robot that actively engages with people, providing information
and services such as escort, ordering, delivery, shopping and cleaning.
Getting a start on digging into robotics platforms for a project I’m thinking through.
Collecting some resources to dig into further later:
(Robot Operating System – and Gazebo (a tool for simulating indoor and outdoor robots)
Open Source platform (humanoid)
