MARTTINO AN OPEN SOURCE, OPEN HARDWARE ROBOTIC PLATFORM
A mobile robot to learn and discover
MARRtino is a ROS-based low-cost differential drive robot platform that comes in many shapes.
MARRtino has been designed to be easy-to-build and easy-to-program, but at the same time it uses professional software based on ROS. It is thus suitable to implement and experiment many typical Robotics and Artificial Intelligence tasks, such as smart navigation, spoken human-robot interaction, image analysis, etc.
MARRtino is being successfully used in a variety of educational activities, ranging from pre-school children to PhD and PostDoc in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
You can develop your own robot in five steps:
1-Acquire the hardware - Part list
2-Assemble the robot - Build
3-Install the robot - Software
- Oracle VirtualBox 5.x or 6.x and Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
- MARRtino OVA file
- Install Oracle VirtualBox and Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
- Download the Oracle virtual application MARRtino 3.0 (5 GB)
- From Oracle VirtualBox, import MARRtino virtual application (Import appliance)
- Run MARRtino virtual application and enjoy it! (User: ubuntu, Password: marrtino)

4-Setup the robot Quick Setup
- Update the software firmware
- Upload firmware
5-Program the robot- Several level of languages 4 in 1 - Programming
If you want to try MARRtino functionalities in a simulator, you can install the software (Step 3) and program the robot (Step 5) using the simulation mode.
