Bionic dog-like robot

effortless connecting rod structure, motion inverse-solved gait algorithm,
capable of performing sorts of gaits and functionalities

Posture self-balancing

embedded high precision 9-DOF motion sensor ICM20948
(3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscrope, 3-axis magnetometer)
accommodating to different terrains, featuring self-balancing capability, keeping the camera stable

5MP 160° wide angle camera

quality OV5647 sensor

Video Monitoring
High definition, low latency, real time video monitoring through the camera

Vision-based Line Following
After OpenCV image binarization process, getting the stray value by comparing the positions of image center line, which will be then used to control the movement of the robot, make it keep following the line.

Motion Detection
Capturing moving objects in the video by detecting the video images from the camera

Color Recognition & Tracking
Auto tracking specified color in the video image, allows different colors
Ultrasonic sensing

outfitted with Ultrasonic module for detecting and responsing to objects

Multiple control methods

video postback, WiFi remote control

Highly integrated base board


  • 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.
