Design a robotic research and development platform focused on small-scale terrestrial semi-autonomous systems.
Must be efficient, extendable, all-purpose
Removable optical head for quick repairs in the field
Follow soldiers and carry their gear over difficult terrain
Easy to tear down and assemble
I designed a simple terrestrial drone large enough to carry a soldiers payload and large enough to carry the soldier themselves should there be an injury. Our engineering team created prototypes utilizing electric scooter parts and a custom application framework for ARM processors tailored to maximize the battery life of robotic systems and edge compute systems.
