Brutus: the Robotic Canine





This demonstration robot is an unique educational experience in the guise of a large 4 ft. long autonomous robot designed to look like a dog. The behavior design is based on Boolean mathematics that are configured to allow the robot to react to surroundings in ways that appear instinctive. The legs, torso and head are equipped with numerous sensors that react to environmental stimulus. The robot uses these sensors to judge distances and calculate each step. The design allows it to work for indoor and outdoor demonstrations.

When needed a small robot arm and hand can emerge from a panel in it’s back to grasp small objects. It can understand spoken commands relayed through a wireless microphone and speak using a digitally controlled EEPROM device. The remote sensing attribute allows the robot to detect common things in it’s surroundings and the IR., Visual spectrum sensors and ultrasonics, relay obstacle and structural data. It operates on 12 VDC stored in a gel cell battery. It is not a mass production item.

With each order every part will be individually crafted to exact specifications. It is designed for supervised demonstrations only. The structural members and exterior consist of aluminum & steel. Other components are polycarbinate, acrylic, brass, nylon, rubber, etc. Please allow 28 weeks for fabrication, testing & shipping.
