FEATURES

The design is a four wheeled unmanned ground vehicle(UGV) working without a human onboard. The robot is electrically powered and with a backup battery pack.

The vehicle moves on four rubber wheel and is suitable to operate across the rail tracks.

PLATFORM
The platform is fitted with the wheels, utility and power. The robot is fitted with ultrasonic sensors in other to perceive the environment. It is also fitted with cameras for more perception and visual sensing of the area.

CONTROL
The vehicle is both Remote-Operated and Autonomous enabling for a wider range of control. This is made possible by sensors, microcontrollers and computing systems of the operation team which plan the operation before hand from the data, ...

The present application relates to precision mechanical tools, and more particularly to a combination tool for tensioning a fastener, for example as done when truing and aligning a tension-spoked wheel.

Many precision assembly operations require measuring the amount of tensile strain applied to fasteners. For example, in the fabrication of engines and pressure vessels, stretch bolts need to be torqued while measuring the amount of bolt stretch to ensure tensile strain on the fastener is within specification. For threaded fasteners, precision fastening entails a cumbersome two-part process: first, the bolts are torqued to a certain specification and then, the tensile strain of the fastener is measured. This process is repeated until the manufacturing specs are achieved for each fastener.

Able Innovations’ mission is to improve healthcare outcomes and people’s quality of life by developing innovative assistive technologies. Our first innovation is a transfer robot that can lift, move, and place humans in a fully automated manner with zero-physical effort from caregivers.

Our innovation moves objects similarly to a standard conveyor belt, but unique design considerations must be made to ensure the product is capable of performing fully-automated transfers of individuals in a safe, efficient, and dignified manner.

To do so, we are developing a unique biocompatible material for the conveyor belt surface, as well as an intricate sensory system to ensure a tolerable level of force is exerted on the individual being transferred, and that there is no ...
