Multi-terrain Mobile Robot (Tank)


A robot capable of traversing a range of irregular and rough terrain has been developed. Over 600 components were individually machined to create the mechanical platform. Sensors and intelligence were then provided together with a rudimentary control system. This robot is now capable of driving to pre-determined outdoor GPS coordinates in farm or forest environments, regardless of weather. It is expected that this robot will have an actuator/gripper mounted in the near future and to begin exploring commercial robotic opportunities.
