SuperDroid Robotics has a new low-profile, high-end robot on the market: an inspection bot with a video camera, that can be remotely controlled via an included tablet. At just 12 inches high, the tracked robot is designed to fit into spaces that are less than ideal for humans.
The aluminum base is custom welded, with IG42 right angle motors. I can move relatively quickly, too: 300 feet per minute. Tablet and robot communicate using a WiFi radio housed inside the robot — so there’s no need for a router.
The included camera is mounted on a custom 360 degree pan and 90 degree tilt system. The robot runs for 3 hours on a single charge of the 22.2V lithium-ion battery. (The charger is included in the kit.)
The bot can be ordered from SuperDroid Robotics website for $5,690.00.
