After creating the SparkFun Advanced Autonomous kit for the Sphero RVR last year, we couldn't help but wonder what else we could do to bring more power and functionality to the Sphero RVR. That line of thinking led us to try to combine a few of our robotics offerings into this powerful mashup of the SparkFun AI JetBot kit for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, the Sphero RVR and the aforementioned Advanced Autonomous kit.
We built the bot almost entirely from parts found in the two kits with and placed them on top of a Sphero RVR. From there, this wonderful mashup was born. If you're interested in joining us on this journey of robotics mashups, the following two tutorials will have you well on your way.
