The world’s first open source autonomous chassis.
Which is dedicated to lowering the innovation barrier of autonomous driving products and reducing the lead time of product development.
As an open source solution for industries, academia and developer communities, PIXBOT is reliable, robust, easy-to-use, high-performance, affordable and extensible. PIXBOT applies software-defined modular design, provides accessible hardware interfaces, adopts open architecture, delivers hardware safety redundancy and supports a diverse range of autonomous driving software stack.
WHY DOSE PIXBOT OPENSOURCE
Cars are ubiquitous nowadays, but the cost of building a car is growing exponentially. Only a few mogul enterprises are able to customize vehicles. PIX, is making a difference, paving the way for future city innovation.
PIXBOT enhances mutual growth and participants can educate themselves along the process. Moreover, open source project allows immersive understanding upon how PIXBOT works, helping build personal skills and expertise. Developers can remain concentrated on their tasks, saving the efforts to solve the problems that have been tackled down by others already. PIXBOT greatly facilitates the process of creating a market-ready product and every success originated here marks the growth of the PIXBOT community itself. Your involvement is a part of this revolution.
