      • SUMMIT XL

      • Platform for research and monitoring

        The SUMMIT XL has skid-steering kinematics based on 4 high power motor wheels. Each wheel integrates a hub brushless motor with gearbox and encoder (optional).

        SUMMIT XL has two possible kinematic configurations. The Omni directional configuration mounts mecanum wheels on an independent suspension system. The mecanum wheels can be easily replaced by conventional wheels (rim mount), thus allowing easy switch from the indoor Omni directional configuration to the versatile skid-steering configuration, both indoors and outdoors.

        The odometer is computed with the use of the four encoders and a high precision angular sensor mounted inside the chassis.

        The strong mechanical structure allows to carry high loads. There are several suspension shocks possibilities. They can also be mounted at several positions to modify the robot clearance.

        The robot base can navigate autonomously or teleported by means of a PTZ camera that transmits video in real time.

            • Robotic hand with 5 fingers

              Nine drives enable the 5-finger hand to carry out various gripping operations. It has been found that many human gestures can be replicated, thus a visual communication between a human and service robot is simplified, therefore increasing the acceptance of using them in the domestic environment.

              By using tactile sensors in the fingers, the gripper hand has the necessary sensitivity and can therefore manage every gripping and manipulation task, even in unstructured and unforeseeable situations. Elastic gripping surfaces ensure a reliable hold of the gripped objects.

              The anthropomorphic gripper hand is completely integrated in the wrist, and therefore make particularly compact solutions feasible. The gripper hand can be connected via defined interfaces with any lightweight arm available on the market. For mobile applications, the 5-finger hand is designed for power supply with battery-servable 24 VDC.

Those need to be removed safely prior to the new vessel closure, and this process was formerly done manually being the pool empty. The Atomic Snail Robot permits to perform this process autonomously being the pool filled, thus avoiding that the operators receive high doses of radiation and at the same time reducing the critical route, i.e. the time the nuclear reactor is not producing energy.

                          The robot has three mechanisms: traction, cleaning and filtering. It has been designed to be easy decontaminated and for its easy deployment and recovery from the vessel joint. The robot is controlled from the top of the pool by means of a simple control panel.

                                          VinBot

                                          Autonomous cloud-computing vineyard robot to optimize yield management and wine quality. VinBot is an all-terrain autonomous mobile robot with a set of sensors capable of capturing and analysing vineyard images and 3D data by means of cloud computing applications, to determine the yield of vineyards and to share this information with the winegrowers.

                                          VinBot responds to a need to boost the quality of European wines by implementing precision viticulture (PV) to estimate the yield (amount of fruit per square metre of vine area: kg/m2). Winegrowers need to be able to estimate yield accurately to perform yearly canopy management techniques, and harvest vineyard areas sequentially, according to the optimal ripeness of the grape in each area, which improves wine quality.
