Built from the blueprint of a Roomba robot vacuum, meet the Create 3 educational robot. iRobot's new mobile robot development platform for learning ROS 2. A canvas for your creativity, the Create 3 arrives ready to go with a suite of smart technology. Begin by programming the Create 3 to perform simple behaviors, sounds and movements. Or advance to autonomous localization, navigation, and telepresence applications. What will you create?
*The Create 3 does not include cleaning Hardware.
Arriving equipped with our smartest technology yet, the Create 3 educational robot offers a full suite of modules, sensors, LED lights, wheels, and behaviors to fuel robotics exploration. Communicate with the robot using Wi-Fi, Ethernet over USB Host, or Bluetooth, and use the built-in USB-C™ port to attach and run third-party hardware. The Create 3 robot's faceplate is easily removable, can be locked in place, and features a standard hole pattern for mounting LiDar scanners, camera modules, and other sensors.
Explore the iRobot Education learning library for tutorials, or venture into expansive, online open source databases for access to software packages and libraries with ROS 2. The robot comes with a Home Base® charging station for docked charging. Additional hardware is not included.
