We took two of our biggest robotics partnerships from the previous year and combined them into one powerful robot.
We finally jumped on a project that we have been wanting to do for a while now: a mash-up of two robotics kits that we released over the past year - the Advanced Autonomous kit for the Sphero RVR and our JetBot AI kit for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano. Both projects were fun to work on during launch and both products have astounding quality in their own perspective markets, so we're very excited to combine them!
We set about building this mash-up and tutorial as a guide for you to follow along with us in building your own Jetson Nano-powered Sphero RVR. There is no real right way to do this; it was us in the shop for an afternoon being creative. Your sensors, board placement and hardware choices may vary. Use this tutorial more as… "guidelines."
