Tracked robot Mk1 - fire fighting prototype
This is my tracked multi-purpose robot. It is powered by two DC motors and controlled via RF link (range 1km LOS) by a usb controller plugged into a laptop.
The pan-tilt mechanism can utilize various configurations:
- fire hose (for firefighting)
- mine detection probe
- robotic arm
- machine gun (for military use)
- radiation detection system (for use in nuclear disasters)
- night vision system
This early prototype (V1.0) lacks range sensors and three on-board cameras that enable full telepresence experience and environmental awareness for the operator (all this will be added).
