The Sphero RVR is the Go-Anywhere-Do-Anything Programmable Robot. Fully capable out of the box yet able to be expanded upon easily, the RVR (pronounced rover) is a robotics platform that is to begin learning all about robotics! With tank treads and powerful, durable motors, the RVR can travel over most surfaces with ease using a highly advanced control system. In addition, on-board sensors such as encoders, an IMU, and a color sensor make building a more advanced robot incredibly easy. A USB and UART port on the RVR allow for expanding the platform using popular development systems like Arduino, the BBC micro:bit, and Raspberry Pi among others. IR sensors on the RVR allow it to communicate with other Sphero products like the Bolt. The RVR is a great way to introduce and further robotics in the classroom.
With the expandability of the RVR, adding the ability for inputs and sensing from things like cameras, distance sensors, and receiving GPS information creates the potential to build incredibly sophisticated autonomous vehicles at an incredible price.
