Exploration in Rough Terrain with an Omni-Drive and Omni-View Rescue Robot

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

For autonomous mobile robots it is important to have the capability to plan and reach a defined goal. In this article, we present a novel mobile robot for urban search and rescue capable of achieving a high level of locomotion. The preliminary aim is to build rescue robots which are able to drive in an unstructured environment and search for victims. Mobile robots have been an essential element in search and rescue scenarios and especially in space exploration to perform science on lunar and planetary objects. With advancements in research and technology many mobile robots have been developed with different configurations, geometries, sizes and how much flexibility can be achieved. These systems share different performance qualities under certain operational conditions. A new mechanism is developed to drive sideways which could be helpful especially in difficult curved staircase or uneven terrain.
