Mini Robot For Restricted Access Exploration
This platform is capable of entering hazardous environments through restricted access ports with a maximum diameter of 150mm (6”). The robot is an innovative new design which combines omnidirectional drive wheels with a reconfigurable footprint to enable the platform to manoeuver through a difficult environments.
The final concept design of the MIRRAX came out of the requirement of carry mid-size sensors (e.g. LIDARs) and having enough battery charge to conduct at least 1 hour of surveying through the restricted access ports. These two factors require the robotic platform to be long and narrow in design, like a snake, and uses custom design omni-directional Mecanum wheels to allow for unique holonomic locomotion. The addition of 2 joints within the length of the robot allow it to be reconfigured in different stable profiles.
