    Duckiebots are great!

    When I was looking for different robots with Jetson Nano for putting some computer vision into action.. I came to choose Duckiebot as it has motors with encoders and also Duckietown has MOOC course. MOOC course works perfect as guided tour into realm of ducks.

    Before Duckiebot I've tried some robot solutions with micro-Python, but I found the platform quite restrictive for my use due to much more restricted computing power and software stacks. Duckietown has developed learning environment with baseline algorithms.

    The current environment is mostly ROS 1 and on MOOC Python is used.

    In picture is my Duckiebot Duckgull DB21J4 (with Jetson Nano 4GB).
