Autonomous Tank

„Fully autonomous vehicles will soon be at the front lines, both on the battle field and search-and-rescue missions. These vehicles are smaller, faster, and more manuverable than their human driven counterparts. Most importantly, autonamous vehicles will remove humans from dangerous areas and minimise casualties. The purpose of this project was to design and build a scaled proof of concept for an antonomous battlefield tank.“

Sparky – Autonomous Telepresence Robot

„The name Sparky is based on an acronym for “Self Portrait Artifact – Roving Chassis I” an awkward title for an art project begun in the early 90’s. Since that time Sparky has evolved from an oversized RC toy with a couple of “baby monitor” video cameras into a fully web-enabled autonomous telepresence robot.
