We aim to build a disposable and inexpensive robot that can be rapidly manufactured and adapted to many different use cases, such as searching for survivors in tight spaces or to locate holes in inaccessible pipelines.
We’re working on making the S.A.R.T completely open source, with download options for our operating systems and sketchup models, as well as putting all our code on GitHub. You can check out the downloads page here.
The S.A.R.T robot is controlled via a dashboard called the S.A.R.T Interface. Features include a video stream, raw data log, FTP file access panel, SSH console, mapping, sensor output and much more. Users never have to access the S.A.R.T hardware directly – everything can be done within the interface. See the demo here!
We provide extensive documentation on all our design and construction processes when it comes to coding, modelling, building, and coming up with new ideas. You could build your own S.A.R.T simply using the information provided in our daily blog.
We have many plans to expand the versatility of the S.A.R.T robot. We are creating a “base model” that other users will be able to develop on. Some possible extensions include:
We often enter our robots in competitions such as RoboCup. We have received awards and recognition for a number of advances.
