WALRUS Rover MQPPublic

Search and discovery rovers have evolved to play an essential part in disaster relief and humanitarian aid. With features such as supervised autonomy, high-definition vision systems, and enhanced mobility, the goal of this project is to create an amphibious rover to aid in search and discovery. Such a rover would not only give relief teams more information about the situation at hand, but also eliminate the danger of sending search parties into harsh and high-risk environments. The addition of water mobility allows teams to deploy the WALRUS Rover after disasters such as tsunamis or hurricanes. The end result of this project is a fully functional prototype of an amphibious rover guided by our design requirements.
