The project consisted of building a universal, resistant to difficult working conditions (rain, snow, mud, high dust, etc.) mobile platform with a lifting capacity of 100-150 kg.
My tasks, as part of SKIDDY, included:
- design and implementation of the SkidController controller, reducing the costs and increasing the hardware integration factor for controlling 4 high-power motors,
- cooperation with mechanical designers on the drive design and efficient cooling for dust-tight and watertight robot housing,
- high-level software and ROS libraries integration to facilitate the use of the robot’s capabilities to the customer.
