POWER CRAWLER 5000

Drbayer

Why is there such things as ATV's? They clearly are not an all-terrain-vehicle. I would definitely consider this robot an 'ATV' though. It can simply climb up stairs, or even go over obstacles taller than itself with ease. This robot features a very unique 'triple-wheel' drive train, mining drill, and a high-power gearbox with arm. It also can be conveniently run off of one cortex and batter! This robot is very versatile and would highly suggest it for all land-earth explorations!

Oil Mapper v.1

Gigakaiser

This robot was designed to be a part of a swarm to accurately map out an oil spill using gps. The robots will navigate away from oil to map the area and perimeter by sending data to a central computer on a ship or in a lab. This robot has the ability to move omnidirectionally to prevent wide turns.

Project Zeta

bobsalive

Project Zeta is a humanoid robot designed to perform human tasks in science and industry. Since it is not mechanically specialised for a particular task it can be reprogrammed to do any task that a human would be capable of. Zeta is suitable for operation in hazardous environments where human-like abilities are required but it is unsafe for humans themselves. It is designed to be feasibly constructed in reality, with a large number of motors used to ensure that it can lift realistic weights.

Team 2113 DuctBot

user29884

DuctBot is designed to simplify inspections of horizontal ducts and drop-ceiling air plenums. It really works! Made of aluminum with a wide footprint, it can roll over the ceiling panels without crashing down. Special Drive Rail Technology protects wires, chains, gears, and sprockets from getting caught in mess. 360 Panorama rotating camera wires back images. Teams 2113 and 2113a designed a robot to inspect horizontal ducts and drop ceiling plenums. They learned that maintenance people have a terrible problem finding leaks and checking wiring in ductwork and plenums. There is a need to...

CHOMPER: A robot to help keep things clean

254pride

This is 254's submission for the Autodesk Inventor® Digital Prototyping Challenge. This year, a groundskeeper/vacuum bot is featured. The robot is designed to help maintain the cleanliness of parks, beaches, as well as large indoor facilities such as warehouses. This robot is completely plausible as it only requires one cortex & one battery to run. It utilizes shaft encoders to measure distance and help it navigate.

DiscoFly

nickd2012

Robots are normally built with the purpose of helping others. Some robots reduce the danger in a task humans have to perform. Other robots have the ability to operate beyond human capabilities. Designing a robot for dangerous tasks beyond human abilities is a difficult task. We have designed a robot that is practical, helpful to others, and well beyond the capabilities of a person. We present a robot design, called “DiscoFly”, to perform bomb defusing. DiscoFly is capable of defusing bombs with two robot arms on a quad-rotor frame. We designed the DiscoFly to be lightweight and...
