JetBot, A $250 DIY Autonomous Robot Based On Jetson Nano

Even at a conference packed with sophisticated autonomous machines that walk, drive, fly and even slither, on their own, the $250 JetBot was a standout. Based on the Jetson Nano, the small but mighty $99 AI computer introduced by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang at GTC last week, the JetBot drew a crowd of hundreds to a session where its creators explained how to build one of your own. The bill of materials? Just $250, including the Jetson Nano. That includes a camera, motor and motor driver, and even a tiny PiOLED display.
