Interview: TurtleBot Inventors Tell Us Everything About the Robot

As part of our tutorial series on TurtleBot, we’re exploring the history of the robot, and there’s no better way to tackle that subject than to talk directly to its creators, Tully Foote (left) and Melonee Wise (right), who developed the robot while at Willow Garage. With all the power of ROS behind it, TurtleBot is a unique platform for robotics development, and we wanted to learn more.
