The mobile robot (called "Scotty") has been built by COLETEK for teleoperation and autonomous mobile
robotics research and development, for proof of concept
purposes. Scotty is avaiable for hourly hire (minimum 3 hours)
for our clients to use. We can provide R&D services to fit
any custom equipment you may need to test your concept (aka
Scotty Robot Plugin). We also use Scotty for internal R&D use.
Scotty fits the bill for rapid prototyping any ground based
teleoperation, semi-autonomous or fully autonomous mobile
robot solutions one may need. Once the proof of concept is
completed, one can redesign a new robot based on lessons
learned, to optimize its physical size, power consumption and
cost; while ensuring it meets the objectives for its target
environment (e.g. underground or an unearthly surfaces).
This R&D can then be applied to many applications such as:
military, home land security, space exploration, earthworks
trucks, agriculture, mining, traffic control, road
construction and gardening.
