Modular EOD / IEDD Robot

PKI 7550Print

PKI 7550 is the optimum tool for every explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technician. Due to its flexible track drive, the robot can be utilised on almost any surface. In order to get to the mission site, the robot is able to climb stairs and overcome obstacles without any problem. Thus PKI 7550 can perform EOD tasks anywhere – in buildings, public means of transport or in outdoor terrain. Due to its small size, it can operate even in cramped conditions, e.g. in buses, trains or planes. PKI 7550 is provided with a manipulator arm and a parallel gripper. The manipulator arm is controlled through a new type of remote control technology. The manipulator arm can be moved synchronously with the operator’s hand of head movement. A stereo camera is attached at the arm’s tip, which transmits its data to a head-up display and the control unit. Additional cameras on the basic platform and on the survey module facilitate the operator’s orientation with the PKI 7550. A further advantage of the PKI 7550 is its modularity. With only a few manual interventions, the PKI 7550 can be transformed into a reconnaissance robot. Replacement of the payload modules with reconnaissance or manipulator arm is done within seconds. Thus, the operator can flexibly react to the requirements of his mission. This modular concept for a small robot is unique worldwide
