Moorebot Scout

    Scout is the world-first autonomous home robot for intelligent surveillance. Equipped with many advanced sensors and AI algorithms, Scout is an ideal assistant for home monitoring with no blind spot. Its capabilities include object recognition, voice control via Amazon Alexa, and monocular SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping). 
        Very often homeowners can't cover all spots in a home with traditional IP cameras. Very often pet lovers are desperate to see how their pets are doing while at work. Moorebot Scout is the right tool for them which can patrol the house autonomously 24/7. Users can view the home through a 1080P HD camera and speak to the family via two-way audio from anywhere in the world.
        The innovative Mecanum wheels design makes this robot super fun to play with. With the mobile phone App, Scout can be a joyful toy for kids. Scout not only follows orders but also follows objects such as pets, humans, and other trained objects. Scratch Language is fully supported. Kids can learn to program easily. The open API allows those advanced users to design and create Extention tools via 3D printers. Scout would carry your tools for more tasks. Those could range with pick-up arm, to UV germ-killing tools, to laser gun for gaming. The possibilities are endless. 
        "Work with Alexa" puts Scout into the smart home ecosystem. Video images from Scout can also stream onto Alexa screen devices such as Echo Show/ Echo Spot/Fire TV. 

    1. Peace of Mind. Scout is a small yet powerful AI robot. He helps you to monitor home from afar with no blind spot. As a home guard robot, Scout patrols your house 24/7 autonomously and always finds his way back to the post and gets ready for the next assignment.
    2. Handy Assistant. Wanna do inspection and exploration in areas that are hazardous or hard to reach? Scout can do it for you. He carries his 1080P FHD camera, bright LED torch, and night vision gadgets, and moves around per your commands. 
    3.  Fun and Entertaining.  Scout has many artificial intelligence features built-in including object detection and recognition with TensorFlow, Monocular SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), and much more. He can follow you and your pets around and dance to the music.
    4. Pet Watching and Companionship. Worry about pets' wellbeing while away from home? Scout is there to help. The two-way radio feature makes Scout even more useful.    
    5. Learn and create. The Scratch Programming UI unleashes kids' creativity. Scout is open source.

    Incredible quality and features

    A great robot to control your home and pets, good job Moorebot!


    I think there is lots of potential. Hopefully more functionality will be added to program blocks for notificatons and delays

    Klaus Springer
    Great product

    The scout makes a high-quality impression, the workmanship is very good. The software is still a bit flawed, but I think it will be improved in the near future.
    Otherwise, I’m very satisfied, keep it up.
    It was worth the wait.

    Greetings Klaus
