Indian startup Vanora Robots has developed a wheeled platform with a camera for Steve ground drones. The main objective of the device is to deliver the camera to a place where the user cannot get to - for example, into a narrow cave or onto the stage during a concert.
The device is a small platform on four wheels, on which one or more cameras for video and photography can be mounted. Steve is capable of moving over rough terrain, and its wheels are bidirectional, allowing it to rotate 360 ° in place.
Users can control the device in real time using the remote control. The maximum payload of the platform is 20 kg - you can install third-party cameras on it.
Steve is powered by several replaceable lithium-ion batteries. Now Vanora Robots is raising money for the production of the first batch of Steve - the cost of the platform is about $ 643.
Earlier, the U.S. Army suggested the military use the MUTT (Multi-Utility Tactical Transport) robot. It can carry up to 450 tons in 72 hours. The robot is designed in three versions with 4 × 4, 6 × 6 and 8 × 8 wheels, but at the same time they can be replaced with tracks.
