This is 254's submission for the Autodesk Inventor Digital Prototyping Challenge. It is a search-and-rescue robot that would be practical in mountain environments where it is not safe for human rescuers. Several of these could be deployed to scour an area of an accident to find survivors.


This is a description of the features of the robot and the design process of the team.

nice thinking but r u sure a small bot like this could pick up the amount of snow needed to rescue a human

Very cool. I wonder if this is sturdy enough for mountain search and rescue.

@leonardo Yes it was, but I didn't have time to do any rendering due to Inventor not working on my computer. @lyncas Thanks! Unfortunately we did not have time to bend the sleds up at the front, which I think would have been really cool :)
