3D scanning robot for ruins
« on: September 02, 2017, 10:46:28 AM »
Hi!
At first, I wanted to say 'hello' to everyone. I'm into robotics for some time, but didn't register to the forum before :)

Have an idea to build an autonomous robot to scan old and sometimes ruined buildings for my company. The best thing would be to build on something of-the-shelf and then add my custom scanning equipment.

Came across this thing couple of days ago:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1174032727/turtle-rover-worlds-first-earth-rover

As I see they offer a DIY kit and have RaspberryPi inside, so I could connect using Ethernet to my scanner.

Here's the question: does anybody here know the Turtle Rover? I mean, is it worth to buy it for $1100 as a kit?
