Oil Mapper v.1


Entry ID #: 605
Created: Mon, Jan 9, 2012 11:23 PM

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.

Very well made video animation. Are you sure that the motors are far enough from water? (they seem to be at mid-level of your flotation device, which in choppy waters might mean immersion)
