Rugged & Reliable
The 4D Robotics’ Modular Robotic Vehicle (MRV-1) in an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that was designed operate in the most extreme of operating environments. The low center of gravity, coupled with a durable drive train allows the unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) to climb stairs, traverse through water, be washed down to remove dirt, mud and contaminants, and get to challenging locations with unprecedented mobility. MRV-1 was designed to go where others won’t.
The MRV-1 provides superior lift capability as compared to other UGVs of similar size and weight. The hydraulic manipulator provides a lifting capability of 90 pounds – enough to lift and carry away objects that others can’t. The modular design of the manipulator system allows extra functionality to be added with very little weight addition to the system. The miniature hydraulic power unit allows power to be added where it is needed. 4D’s rapid prototyping team can customize a system design for a wide range of end-user applications.
The MRV-1 manipulator controls have been designed to provide not only heavy lift, but precision manipulation as well. The precision manipulation provided by the hydraulically controlled actuators is unprecedented. From delicate operations to heavy lift, the MRV-1 will meet your operational needs.
MRV-1 was designed to be a UGV platform that can be easily modified to meet specific customer needs. The miniature hydraulic power unit allows extra functionality to be added in a straightforward manner. The track assemblies can be easily removed and replaced, and the modular electronics design allows sensors and electronics to be integrated in a straightforward fashion.
