Supporting Robot ‘Crabli’ is Test-Ready

After Thomas finished his test series on different suspension systems on the ‘Crabli’-Robot, we were able to mount our additional equipment on it. Besides an extension battery pack, we added a (night vision) camera, a wireless repeater, and a strong LED light source. Mark is currently simplifying the control interface and we’re running tests focusing on the remote controllability and the range of the WiFi signal.
For this robot the LRC will be the first field mission, and we’re really curious about its locomotion abilities in such a harsh environment.
