This is the Dr. Robot Sputnik WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Head). The Sputnik has been built in response to requests for a robot that had the speed and payload of X80 with the development versatility of the DRK8080. This is a robot with the complexity expected of a research tool, but the simplicity of use required by hobbyists and enthusiasts.

In addition to all the features offered in the model X80 robot, included with SPK-1 are software modules enabling remote access and control of the robot via Internet protocol. For home users, this means the ability to navigate and monitor the robot's surroundings remotely. Other software elements permit remote listening through the robot's microphone as well as two-way verbal communication through the robot to a remote user.

Like its cousin the X80, Sputnik is a balance of speed and strength with portability and precision. The wheel-based platform's two 12V DC motors each supply 300 oz.-inches(22kg.cm) of torque to the robot's 18 cm (7 in.) wheels, yielding a top speed in excess of 1 m/s (3.3 ft/s). Two high-resolution (1200 count per wheel cycle) quadrature encoders mounted on each wheel provide high-precision measurement and control of wheel movement. Weighing only 6.1 kg (13.5 lb.), the system is light, but it can carry an additional payload of 10 kg (22 lb.)

The Sputnik offers full WiFi (802.11g) wireless, multimedia, sensing and motion capabilities and comes with a wide range of sensor, camera, and audio modules, sufficient to serve in any variety of applications. The robot offers broad expandability as well for projects that may require additional sensors, even specialized modules. Powered by separate RC servo motors, the integrated camera head can pan and tilt independently.
