Robotic vision

May 2011 Products

The multifunction agile remote-controlled robot (MARCBOT), is a small robotic platform aimed at inspection of suspicious objects during IED sweeps.

IED, or an improvised explosive device, is a bomb partially comprised of conventional military explosives, such as an artillery round, attached to a detonating mechanism. IEDs may be used in terrorist actions or in unconventional warfare by guerrillas or commando forces in a theatre of operations.

The MARCBOT is provided as a remote inspection platform allowing soldiers to achieve stand-off and remote observation at distances greater than 100 m when trying to determine if an object is an IED.

As a key component integrated into the MARCBOT, the ACTi IP camera, model ACM-1311N, with low-light image sensor and LED arrays, helps to provide real-time video feeds back to the operator of the MARCBOT, even during night-time missions.

With the pan/tilt and height adjust mechanism of the MARCOBT, the ACTi IP camera can be extended nearly 1,2 m in the air and manoeuvre to look into cans and over burlap sacks. With the efficient MPEG-4 encoding on the ACTi IP camera and the SoC based processor, clear video can be streamed wirelessly to the operator.
