The Go-Anywhere, Do-Anything Programmable Robot

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. 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 expansion port 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.

Features & Technologies:
Removable, rechargeable USB C battery allows you to recharge quickly and even add a backup battery for continued use.
All terrain for both indoor and outdoor use allows you to take your RVR into the great outdoors, climb obstacles, and experiment in a wide range of environments.
Advanced control system allows for extremely precise, vector-based driving. The robot even corrects for unexpected obstacles.
Expansion Port allows users to go beyond the onboard sensors and connect 3rd party hardware like Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and MicroBit.
Color sensors allow RVR to detect and mimic RGB values of the surface it drives over or write programming variables based on the color detected.
Infrared sensors allow bot to bot communication, swarm programming, robot follow and evade with other RVRs or even a Sphero BOLT.
Customizable LED lighting allows for vibrant visual feedback and customizations.
Ambient light sensors allow users to write programming variables based on LUX value detected. Users could start a program when lights in the room are turned on or off or they could program RVR to drive when a flashlight is held up to it.
