Product Details

The Quanser Mobile Robotics Lab is designed to make the leap from classroom theory to real-world robotics a reality. At the core of this lab are four QBot Platforms, equipped with top-notch sensors like LiDAR and an Intel RealSense RGB-D camera, complimented by an NVIDIA Jetson Orin Nano. This setup lets students and researchers explore everything from basic robotics to the frontiers of applied AI and multiagent systems. It comes fully supported by course-ready curriculum and project-based learning materials.

Leveraging the powerful digital twin of the laboratory, students can safely explore and develop algorithms in a simulated environment that is an ideal twin of the real-world lab. Combining digital and real-world learning with progressive pedagogical approaches supported by the lab can create a collaborative and motivational learning environment. In addition, students can undertake projects that mirror real-world scenarios, facilitating a deep understanding of how mobile robots are used and building toward a portfolio of skills that can be leveraged to demonstrate industry readiness both for industrial roles and in future academic research. To promote further flexibility, teaching material, and research examples  with leading programming tools like Python, MATLAB Simulink, C++, and ROS 2Overall, the Mobile Robotics Lab transcends conventional educational lab offerings by merging rigorous academic research with practical teaching, shaping engineers ready to spearhead future advancements in mobile robotics both academically and industrially.
