What is SCUTTLE?





Taxi for



SCUTTLE originates from a critical need at Texas A&M for a flexible, extensible, durable, and afforable robot to support the unversity's Mobile Robotics Undergraduate Engineering course.

During the development of the course we found no affordable solutions available on the market which could meet the learning objectives.  This kicked off the development of the SCUTTLE platform, which we determined early should be shared publicly to lower the barriers of entry to robotics for people and academic institutions world-wide.  The result of that effort is a robot with strong autonomous capability, IoT connectivity, and payload performace; backed by a supportive Open Source Community and easily available design documentation.

The original SCUTTLE design was iterated upon to require ZERO fabrication and to be sourced from parts available world-wide at low cost.  All of the documentation to build your own Scuttle can be found through links right here.
