› Project Overview
Who we are
Warwick Mobile Robotics (WMR) is an on-going group research project carried out by a team of Master’s level engineering students at the University of Warwick. This project is jointly run by the School of Engineering and WMG. Since 2008, WMR research teams have been helping to make advances in robotic systems in the Urban Search and Rescure (USAR) field.
This year the WMR team was formed of a multi-disciplinary team consisitng of mechcanical, manufacturing, electrical and software engineers.
USAR robots are designed to locate survivors in hazardous environments, such as earthquake disaster zones, thus removing emergency service personnel from danger.
The overarching project goal is to continue the design and manufacture of a fully functioning USAR robot to advance research of Search and Rescue systems in disaster environments.
Our Project Aims and Objectives
The aim of the WMR team this year is to complete the previous year's efforts on the robot IRIS and achieve a completed and optimised USAR robot.
The following are the team's objectives:
