System description

The robot  SeekurJr is based on the correspondend platform of the manufacturer „Adept/Mobile Robots“.  It is a very robust outdoor system which can especially be used on uneven, e.g., rocky or sandy ground. The base platform was extended by several sensors plus a pan-tilt unit. The system is used for the primary research tasks of autonomous self-evaluation and the detection of unspecified failures and disturbances, especially on sandy or uneven ground.
