JetBot 2GB AI Kit, AI Robot Based On Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit (optional)
JetBot 2GB AI Kit
AI-based smart robot powered by NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit
NVIDIA official recommendation

Since Waveshare JetBot AI Kit released, it is welcomed by lots of global users due to its high quality structure design and extreme cost effective, and has successfully become one of the most recommended AI robot kits by NVIDIA. As anticipated, the JetBot 2GB version is also available now.

Note: the Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit is optional.
AI-based "Actual Smart"

Smart robot is always the favorite project of electronic enthusiasts,
however, a robot will be "not that smart" if it is not AI-based.

This is an actual smart robot powered by NVIDIA JetBot AI project and the Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit, easily achieving AI functions like: facial recognition, object tracking, and self driving. Comes with ROS nodes code as well, which makes it easy to get started with ROS.

Auto Road Following & Collision Avoidance

Collecting data via camera by taking enough images of different conditions, using the data to train the neutral network, combined with AI algorithm, finally achieving auto collision avoidance on sorts of environments.

Robot Operating System (ROS) support

Comes with ROS nodes code, make it easy to get started with ROS, and to learn the ROS system framework and concept

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a flexible framework for writing robot software. It is a collection of tools, libraries, and conventions that aim to simplify the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior across a wide variety of robotic platforms. The ROS is one of the most popular robot software framework in the world.
JetBot expansion board highly integrated

no messy wiring, simple assembly


  • Li-ion and Li-po batteries are quite unstable. They may cause fire, personal injury, or property damage, if they're not properly recharged or used.
  • Do not reversely connect the polarities when recharging or discharging the battery. Do not use inferior charger/charging panel to recharge the battery.
  • Do not mix use old batteries with new ones, avoid using batteries of different brands.
  • When buying Lithium battery, should always make sure the battery specification is compatible with the expansion board. Choose batteries from formal manufacturer, and ensure the batteries will work stably and safely by aging test.
  • Lithium batteries have limited cycle life, they will also deteriorate as time goes by. Should be replaced with new ones when the batteries reaching their max cycle life, or working over two years, whichever comes first.
  • Should be placed carefully and properly, keep it away from inflammables and explosives articles, away from children, avoid any safety accident caused by careless storage.
