RVR is Sphero’s revolutionary take on the programmable robot. It’s drivable right out of the box, packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization. This robot is a hackable mobile platform for beginners, educators, students, and tech hobbyists.
Download the Sphero Edu app to drive or program RVR all over. Literally. RVR is equipped with all-terrain treads, a powerful motor, and plenty of torque so you can go faster and farther. Obstacles or uneven surfaces won't affect RVR's ability to drive straight, thanks to a sophisticated, vector-based control system.
But, driving RVR is just the beginning. RVR’s extremely hackable platform, featuring a 4-pin UART and an onboard power source, allows you to connect and run third-party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, micro:bit, or Arduino. Build the robot of your dreams and then program it with the Sphero Edu app. Chances are, if you can hack it, RVR can do it.
