Lumenier develops new UGV
Lumenier has introduced a new UGV platform called the Tactical Truck UGV.
Weighing less than 15lbs, the Tactical Truck is designed for operations where an aerial vehicle may not be practical, such as long distance and duration missions where the vehicle may sit idle and monitor an area, tight and potentially dangerous spaces such as pipelines, and missions where flight may not be permissible.
The vehicle can carry payloads and enable first-person views for the remote operators from its front and rear thermal and day/night cameras. It is also fitted with a two-way radio with speaker to allow operators to listen and announce back, and can climb stairs and right itself if flipped.
Tim Nilson, Founder and CEO of Lumenier, said: ‘In the air or on the ground, we can answer the needs of any company or government agency.
‘We have parts from over 300 manufactures, including our own high-performance motors and electronics, so when we heard the call for a ground-based vehicle we knew we could make something incredible. Our engineers dove deep and produced a rugged vehicle which anyone can easily operate.’
