This bot could has severe limitations. MonoSlam has issues and I know the ROS environment. After the March 2023 firmware update they reset the root password to an unknown value. I was going to tweek several ros frame parameters to hopefully get monoslam to judge better because it's off by 3ft on both sides right now. I installed na LD06 LIDAR and got the ROS1 code installed and working but when testing the LIDAR I quickly realized there's not enough battery power to get decent runtime. So I have been focusing on optimizing monoslam. Now I have to take the bot apart and see if I can connect via the USB interface via ADB or perhaps I can mount the storage on my Linux Development box. For now I'm working on building a Turtlebot 4 out of my Create3 bot.
I run an inspection company and have found Scout to be quite useful. Instead of sending people into potentially hazardous areas, the robot can easily investigate for us. The only downside is that sometimes the robot will roll over, and we have to attach a string to pull it out. A self-righting arm would be nice.
Having been an original supporter of Scout, I'm delighted to share my experience with the upgraded Scout E camera robot. Witnessing its evolution over time has been truly rewarding, and I've found its capabilities to be a valuable addition to my daily routine.
One of the standout improvements is the Scout E's stability. As someone who has been with the product from the start, I've rarely encountered instances where it fails to return to its designated location. This consistent performance is a testament to the advancements made.
Another notable enhancement is the Scout E's refined obstacle avoidance technology. It now adeptly navigates around objects, cords, and tight corners, minimizing the risk of unintended collisions. This upgrade has not only improved its efficiency but also instilled confidence in its ability to navigate various environments.
In summary, the Scout E has made impressive strides since its inception. Its stability and obstacle avoidance upgrades make it an invaluable asset for monitoring purposes. If you're in search of a capable and dependable camera robot, I wholeheartedly recommend considering the Scout E.
I accidentally drove the bot into the pool, and it turned off. After draining a lot of water out of it, I was amazed that it still powers up and works as normal. The company said that the waterproof level isn't sufficient for going to the bottom of my pool, but it's still functioning. Good job.
The battery life is very short. The device has to be recharged manually since it cannot go to a Charging Station on its own. An idea before its time !
