Petoi Pet Robot Dog and Pet Robot Cat Educational Robots

Petoi, a company that specializes in developing tomorrow’s pet robots, has developed two quadruped robots, a pet robot dog named Bittle and a pet robot cat named Nybble, for stem robotics and educational applications.

Bittle is an open-source bionic robot pet dog used for learning and play, able to climb up to the ceiling and walk upside down because of its light body. Adding a customized Arduino board can help the robot pet coordinate difficult movements, and adding different sensors will make it capable of perception. It is also possible to integrate AI capabilities into the robot by mounting a Raspberry Pi or other AI chips through wired/wireless connections.

The user can control the pet robot’s actions through the Petoi mobile app or by programming more features and behaviors in C/C++/Python. The users even have the option of assembling their own pet robot cat. With Arduino, optional sensors, and the Raspberry Pi, the robot cat also incorporates Artificial Intelligence (AI). The quadruped robot cat is built on OpenCat which is an open-source project for quadruped robots.
