An embedded Linux mobile robot was designed to support teaching in Multidisciplinary Engineering Technology (MXET) at Texas A&M University. This robot is the Sensing, Connected Utility Transport Taxi for Level Environments (SCUTTLE). It is a payload-ready mobile platform made from off-the-shelf parts and 3D printed designs. SCUTTLE integrates a camera, ultrasonic sensor, encoders, optional LIDAR, and various sensors. SCUTTLE has been used in lab lessons since 2019 in the Mobile Robotics undergraduate course (MXET 300). The mechanical, hardware, and software source codes are open and available on GitHub to support mechatronics education.
