Last month, our newest member arrived....in a crate.... from Clearpath Robotics. Clearpath Robotics helped us integrate two UR-5 manipulators with their Husky mobile platform, thus creating a unique, industrial grade dual-arm system. The platform included LIDAR, IMU, and vision sensors. We have two Robotiq grippers on hand (ha!) we will be adding soon. Our sponsor is primarily looking for the system to complete two critical missions for the Department of Energy: the retrieval and handling of nuclear materials and inspection/response to contamination events. We are looking forward to completing these and many other potential missions!
