The WALRUS rover is a capable search and discovery platform aid in disaster relief. It utilizes actuated pods, onboard cameras, and aquatic mobility to provide responders with the information they need. The goal of this project is to enhance the WALRUS rover, by improving the situational awareness of the users. We utilized 3D mapping to present the environment in a natural way. We fabricated a new water resistant mast, to provide a superior view point. Finally, we implemented obstacle avoidance to allow the user to focus on the task at hand, instead of the obstacles. This document outlines the requirements and design to implement these features.
