The Dr. Robot Scout2 WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Dual arms) is a ready to use mobile robot platform designed for remote monitoring / patrolling applications requiring object manipulation or other direct physical interaction with the robot's surroundings.
Co-Positioned Camera and Grips
The Dr. Robot Scout2 WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Dual arms) is a wrist-mounted camera that greatly facilitates remote manipulation of objects. Optionally, you can choose to have cameras on both wrists, maximizing the robot's ability to survey its surroundings. With their position coincident to the robot's gripping digits, the cameras uniquely enable remote users to get an eye on whatever the robot is reaching toward. Each of the robot's arms has five degrees of freedom, excluding the hinging DOF of the gripper joint. The lifting capacity of each gripper is 300 g while the chassis has a carrying capacity of 15 kg.
The Dr. Robot Scout2 WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Dual arms) travels at a top speed of 1 m/sec and has 7 infrared distance sensors and 3 ultrasonic rangefinders onboard, but also has a bumper equipped with shocks in case of an unavoidable collision. Two lamps on the front of the robot also provide near-field illumination.
Packages & Configurations
The Dr. Robot Scout2 WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Dual arms) functions by wireless connection to a notebook or desktop PC equipped two joystick controllers (included) that separately control the robot and arm motion. The software modules enable a user to see/hear via the robot, and talk through the robot's onboard speaker. A camera mounted on the wrist of right arm provides viewing from virtually any perspective.
With its integrated high bandwidth (11Mbps) WiFi 802.11 wireless module, the system can upload all sensor data (including encoder sensor readings) to a PC or server at rates in excess of 10Hz. Similarly, streaming audio and video (up to 30 fps) either for direct monitoring or for processing by high-level AI schemes is a snap. The commands and instructions sent to the SCOUT2 via the same wireless link also pass at rates exceeding 10Hz, providing real-time control and access.
The Dr. Robot Scout2 WiFi Mobile Development Platform (w/ Dual arms) includes all WiRobot development software components (for MS Windows 2000 and up), enabling easy access to all data and information in a standard Microsoft Windows programming environment (e.g., MS VB and VC++). Under the approach of using a separate PC for high-level control, there are no longer onboard restrictions on a mobile system's processing power, memory and storage. For users of non-Windows operating systems (e.g., Linux), Dr Robot will provide the raw communication protocol for direct integration with any other system/device. It is fully integrated and each robot is fully assembled and tested prior to shipping so that it arrives ready for use.
OS Independent Programming Support
The OS (operating system) independent robot control and data communication protocols are provided for developing customized robot program for any operating system or devices that supporting TCP/IP communication. High level ActiveX controls are also provided for fast development under Windows 2000 or XP.
