Rescue Robot


Mass is a small-scale autonomous robotics platform suitable for land-based projects. It has been designed to be simple to learn and infinity expandable. Suitable for applications ranging from education to industry, it reduces the client need to design and manufacture a versatile and stable terrestrial platform. All the client has to do is augment the base platform with necessary sensors and hardware to perform their task.

The Mechanism

Mechanical Design

Mass features a mechanically articulated suspension system that has been designed to ensure that no matter what terrain is encountered the robot constantly maintains 4 contact points on the ground. Its simplicity of design is achieved through the use of springs and gears. This allows the robot to independently articulate over obstacles and debris. This in conjunction with a low centre of gravity enables the robot to climb inclines up to 27 degrees.

The Design

Our Vision

No matter whether the customer is a large industrial corporate or an innovator is a garage at home, Mass can be rapidly manufactured, customized and deployed to solve any challenge. There is no longer a need to invest years into designing and manufacturing the base platform for a robot. The customer can now purchase a base platform that is robust, highly adaptable, functions in complex terrain and exposed a wide range of data in a variety of interfaces.

Simple, Sleek

The rapid prototyping allowed us to reinvent almost every part of the robot from the previous version. We kept to widely available materials and manufacturing tools like laser cutters and 3D printers which enabled us to bring the most sophisticated product which is friendly to all demographics. This also allowed the robot to be customisable to the institutes desires.

The Software

Data Output

To facilitate data output of sensors to the robot operator, Mass integrates all its telemetry to both tablet and HoloLens. The integration to the tablet is best used for analysing telemetry or controlling the robot. The integration to the HoloLens creates an immersive experience for the operator, that overlays the the robot’s telemetry with the real world. This allows the operator to perceive the the environment as if the operator was the robot.

The Materials

The robot's frame is fully laser cute with minor aluminum bracing for the center chest to maintain structural integrity when maneuvering over tough and bumpy terrain. The 2D designed robot allows for the easy build of the robot for anyone with any level of engineering skills. The electronics utilise a Grove system to maintain a simplistic build.

Our Project

Through our endeavour we have observed that the market for a small-scale robotic platform which is highly adaptive, quick to manufacture and disposable is not well serviced. In particular, there is a need for a generic platform that is capable of manoeuvring over complex terrain within confined areas. We have also observed that there is an ever increasing need to facilitate data output mediums to the robot’s operators. This led us to develop a cheap versatile robotic platform capable of filling this space in the market.

Why this?

Over the last four years we have developed a robotics platform to compete internationally in a competition that simulates a disaster scenario where human victims are trapped in complex terrain that is inaccessible to rescuers. We have developed a universal product that is easy to initial learn and expand. It can be used in universities and schools with the same version.
