Spiri for Academics

Academic Offers

Researchers are working on the next advances in robotics, and educators are preparing the next generation of roboticists. We aim to help in these important efforts by providing discounts, access to resources, and support for academics and students. We offer a range of academic options from a single Spiri Mu to a fully equipped lab.

By design, our products are well suited to education and research. Consider these advantages:

  • Our software is built on Ubuntu Linux, OpenCV, ROS, and PX4, all open source and in wide use.
  • Our robots are rugged and reliable, and well suited to hardware expansion, upgrade, and repair.
  • Our simulator, documentation and tutorials are excellent for reference and self-directed learning.
  • Our team is experienced with research and educational collaboration.
