Brian Guerriero is the NSF Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power researcher working on TestBed 4: Compact Rescue Crawler at Georgia Tech.
What’s a Compact Rescue Crawler?
The Compact Rescue Crawler (CRC) is a hexapedal (6-legged) robot capable of executing search and rescue missions in disaster areas such as earthquake sites and mine collapses.
The legged nature of this robot allows for extreme maneuverability, and the fluid power provides much more power than standard electric motors.
Only two operational legs exist for research purposes now
Key Research Areas
· Applied realtime pneumatic control of multiple cylinders
· Realtime coordinate transformations
· Haptic (directional force) feedback to the operator
· New cylinder technology with integrated position and pressure sensors
· Gait sequencing for multiple legs
