The rover is customizable. It has a universal expansion port and onboard power, enabling to attach and run third-party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, BBC micro:bit, or Arduino.
RVR's control system is a professional-level control system, enabling advanced programming and problem solving in robotics.
The RVR has a highly tuned, vector-based, closed-loop control system. RVR uses high-resolution encoders and an onboard 9-axis IMU with proprietary algorithms to drive, correct, and navigate based on heading and relative position.
Most programmable vehicles and build-a-bot platforms have no control system, meaning the wheels rotate based on how much raw power you send the motors, so driving to a predetermined, specific location is out of the question. RVR’s control system is engineered so that obstacles, disruptions, and uneven surfaces won’t affect your driving experience.
