Teleoperated Planetary Probe




The Teleoperated Planetary Probe is a new design which combines a number of exciting interactive elements with the science of  robotics and space exploration. The exhibit affords the museum visitor the opportunity of controlling a teleoperated robotic probe robot to survey an area of terrain and take samples and readings for analysis.

The exhibit is configured with a full color JVC monitor and Happ controls mounted in a sturdy brushed aluminum council. The exhibit case is made of MDO plywood with your choice of laminate and brushed aluminum accents. The probe robot is built with sturdy 6061 aluminum, UHMW, steel rails, omron micro switches and Dayton gear motors.

The probe robot is based on current technology and forecasts possible upcoming applications. The probe robot  is configured as part of the undercarriage of a spacecraft of the future. The premise is that the operator in the space craft seeks information about the alien landscape prior to physically entering the environment.

The Probe robot operates in an seven foot by seven foot area on a guide rail system that allows full reach and panning within the entire area in all x and y coordinates. The robot arm provides fine movement within each section of each area and the z coordinate to retrieve objects. The color camera for the exhibit is mounted directly to the arm so the view the user gets is exactly true to the robots view of the terrain. The camera is also angled so the view beyond the terrain area is not visible. When the task is timed out or completed by the visitor the exhibit displays relative success of the mission and resets the items found to the terrain floor plain area. The exhibit is also view able by other visitors from three of it's four sides through clear polycarb windows.
