The OpenCat opensource platform for creating four-legged robot-children was released

Petoi developers have introduced OpenCat, an open-source platform for creating four-legged robots that can act as pets.

The platform allows you to use servo drives for amateurs in an optimized case on inexpensive popular equipment based on Arduino, ESP32 or Raspberry Pi. The system can be retrofitted with an intelligent camera module, IoT sensors, and voice command modules.

Developers offer code to perform various tasks related to robot movement.

The authors of the project have now decided to open source it to develop collaborations in the fields of robotics, IoT and artificial intelligence, the development of affordable four-legged robots, and STEM education programs.

In 2016, Petoi founder and CEO Zhongzhong Li launched his first OpenCat project, inspired by the Boston Dynamics robot. A year later, he founded Petoi to produce open-source intelligent bionic quadrupedal robots. Nybble robot cats and Bittle robot dogs, which can run, walk and balance like animals, are already working on OpenCat. Such robot tutors are available to users from more than 60 countries.
