The Explora series of robots is the result of everything we have learned from years of playing in the underground sandpit. They are small all-terrain robots that have ridiculous amounts of traction and agility. This is achieved via eight independently suspended and powered wheels, as much ground clearance as we can manage and the right geometry for skid steering.
The Explora XL came to live as our mining customers wanted an “indestructible robot”. Of course nothing is indestructible in the mining environment, but the Explora XL comes close. With a fully welded aluminum monocoque body and full aluminum and steel suspension system, it is built for the most rugged and harshest of environments. The robot drives through eight independently suspended wheels driven by eight independent motors.
Unlike tracked robots or belt or chain-driven systems, even if one wheel gets stuck, there are seven others still driving to get you out of trouble. It is more than capable of climbing up and down staircases or steep inclines.
Additional wheels can be purchased for sand, all-terrain or road. With its incredibly wide footprint, it is a stable platform to safely carry all of your payloads.
HUGE PAYLOAD BAY
With the generous mid-body positioned payload bay, it is the perfect platform for photography, thermal imaging, laser scanning, gas sensing or whatever terrestrial application you require
