Endeavor Robotics receives SUGV order
Endeavor Robotics has received an order to deliver 32 Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGV) to the US armed forces, the company announced on 9 August.
The SUGVs will be equipped with the uPoint Multi-Robot Control System, which consists of an Android-based, rugged, tablet controller and Persistent Systems' MPU5 radio network. The uPoint system, which can operate multiple systems across the Endeavor family of UGVs, decreases on-robot training time by leveraging common technology and familiar tablet-based user-interfaces.
The integration of the mesh networking with Endeavor Robotics robots will increase the distance of unmanned ground operations and enable operators to control or observe multiple robot assets through a common controller interface.
The SUGV provides dismounted operations with a back-packable, easily deployable, and rugged robot. The SUGV meets IP67 ratings and integrates multiple sensors and hardware for increased capabilities. It can also climb and descend stairs, and provides dexterous and robust manipulation and lift/inspection capabilities.
