Platform for research and transport
The mobile platform RBCAR has RWD Ackerman kinematics. The traction is controlled by an AC motor with incremental encoder and the direction through a power steering system with absolute encoder.
Thanks to its mechanical structure and the rear drawer, this mobile platform can carry heavy loads. With the configuration of suitable sensors, the robot can navigate autonomously, teleoperated with a joystick or a steering wheel, as an electric vehicle.
It has front and rear drum brakes that allow the robot to stop immediately. Optionally, by remote emergency button. The robot can mount any standard accessory from the company (Hokuyo laser, laser Sick, DGPS kits, etc.) and any sensor required by the customer.
It also has internal connectivity (USB, RS232, GPIO) and external (USB, RJ45, making 12 VDC) to quickly connect the components.
RBCAR uses an open architecture and modular control ROS.
