Military ‘Robot Dogs’ Can Now Be Equipped To Swim | The Drive

Must Read

The NAUT propulsion technology from Onyx Industries helps robot dogs swim better.

Vision 60 quadrupedal uncrewed ground vehicles (Q-UGVs) from Ghost Robotics, sometimes known as robot dogs, can now swim: This is the result of an Onyx Industries ‘tail’ kit with a water jet propulsion system. It does not seem that performance and other capacity information, such as how quickly they can swim or their maximum water endurance, is accessible. The NAUT jet propulsion unit converts any platform rated IP67 or above into a remotely piloted and autonomous system. Ingress Protection (IP) code specifies how water and other contaminants may be prevented from entering electronics and other electrical equipment.

The ability to traverse more profound water difficulties may only strengthen their adaptability, regardless of the assignments they may be assigned. This year’s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference was held in Tampa, Florida. The mechanism propels the robotic dog at a rate of three knots. It can function at full power for roughly 35 minutes with a dedicated power supply. In addition, the ‘tail’ may continue to work by taking control of the robot dog’s internal power source.
