KEY FEATURES

Development of hexapod capable of moving autonomously within a hazardous environment for remote inspection and object manipulation. The primary motivation for this work is to build and equip a hexapod with suitable hardware tools and software algorithms that would enable it to assist or carry out decommissioning task. Work packages include developing a hexapod robot with object manipulation capabilities, high payload, dynamic and static stability capabilities for manoeuvring within the environment.

His research focuses on expanding hexapod manoeuvring capabilities. This is to be deployed in a hazardous environment for inspection and object manipulation on both land and underwater. Current techniques for navigating and walking in unstructured and constrained environment is limited. This work focuses on exploiting the capabilities of a hexapod in manoeuvring in such environment.
