Full of surprises
The manipulator is equiped with five rotational degrees of freedom. Which allows it to pick up objects up to 2 kg in weight.
Different tasks require different tools. Our rover is build to quickly change its capabilities with removable modules.
The rover is equipped with a varienty of instruments to sense its enviroment. Two cameras ensure the operator's awareness
The undercarriage has a suspension, that can overcome difficult terrain. Each wheel can turn individually. Turning is smoothed compared to a skid steer robot.
Our unique design of a manipulator allows us to pick up object from the ground on all sides of the rover.
The rover went through several design changes. Most of the changes were to the udercarriage. We have done a lot of simulations to determine which undercarriage kinematics to use and what type of springs and dampers are suitable.
The chassis holds all the important electronic components and additional modules are mouted on top of it.
It might seem like just a cool name for a robot. But it comes from abbreviating the internal code of our department, the department of robotics -> Katedra 354 -> Katedra tři pět čtyři -> K3P4. It's a bit cryptic, but we like it nonetheless!
