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.
