In the course of the project “Reliable Control of Semi-Autonomous Platforms (RelCon)“ taurob has adapted its robot remote control to drive heavy trucks. Thus is becomes possible to carry out disaster relief missions (avalanches, mudslides, radioactive fallout) without endangering the personnel of the truck. Together with our project partners Fachhochschule Technikum Wien, Austrian Armed Forces, AIT, PIDSO and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Austria, taurob has successfully presented the project’s outcome last Tuesday. A ten-ton heavy MAN HX58 truck has been controlled tele-operated, semi- and fully autonomous across the military training grounds of Felixdorf, Austria.
