The Next Generation
After lots of design work, simulation and testing manufacture of the new WMR Search and Rescue robot is underway. Material has been arriving in the workshop and the first new parts are being manufactured. The new design builds on where 2014/15 Orion left off, incorporating what was learnt last year with a larger modular design, adjustable independent suspension and more powerful motors and electronics. The modular nature of the new robot will provide a platform that future teams can build on. It will be easy to swap in new modules to change the robot's capabilites for the task at hand.
As manufacturing progresses we will update with progress picuteres, in the meantime the image below is a rendering of what the new robot will look like.
