Roboticists, creators, and engineers everywhere are creating ingenious solutions to difficult problems. But what do many of these solutions share? They all need a quick, simple way to move around and perform tests. Be it a new kind of LIDAR or a robotic arm, there is a constant need for a precise, easy-to-attach mobility system to get projects in motion.

The aim of the Glide project is to create a robust, low-cost module that will allow its users to mobilize their projects in a matter of hours, as well as to create an open source project that students like me can contribute to and learn things from.
