Turtlebot with MacBook Air

in categories Robotics, ROS

Turtlebot was powered up for the first time today. In contrast to the original Turtlebot, it has an Macbook Air instead of an Asus Netbook 1215N.

At the moment ROS is installed on a virtual Ubuntu machine on top of Mac OS X. This will change when i have everything up and running under Mac OS X.

A second photo without the Macbook installed. Here you can see i have used the plates and the electronics from turtlebot.eu (not available anymore). Because the iRobot Create can not be ordered from iRobot directly, when you live in Germany, i have ordered mine from Acroname Robotics.
