Autonomous Testing Robot
We set out to create a scalable autonomous testing solution that gathers information and provides insights about future modifications and retesting
We needed to tackle the challenge of decreasing downtime for testing larger vehicles, easily fine-tuning sensors, and creating a more efficient engineering development process overall. The solution lay in a robot designed specifically to gather actionable data, optimizing development when building larger autonomous vehicles.
Autonomous vehicles start small before progressing to larger, more sophisticated solutions. We strategized about how to create a manageable robot that serves as a mobile testing platform. We fit the solution with various sensors that provide information for modification, allowing our team to identify opportunities for resting and additional fine-tuning before advancing to future stages of development.
Planning for autonomous mobility
Autonomous vehicles can increase work productivity by utilizing technology to optimize speed, efficiency, and safety. Removing operator error and adding numerous safety sensors results in fewer accidents and is more capable of accident avoidance. The robot allowed us to understand how similarly operated vehicles would behave in the field.
Testing for real-world scenarios
Creating a smaller robotics platform allows for less downtime and testing on larger vehicles in simulated and real-world environments. Our robots gather various information such as Lidar and visual data to make sense of the world around them, allowing us to improve technology in the field.
