Groundhog was developed in just under two months to brave the rigors of an abandoned mine. Look at Groundhog's vital stats and the subsystems that make up this 1600 lbs robot.


Motivation
Events in the real world that led to the development of Groundhog.

Mechanical
The chassis, drive train, steering, and physical configuration of Groundhog.

Electrical
The wiring, control, and sensor electronics that comprise the nervous system of Groundhog.

Software
The low level integration, user interface, and mapping software that knitted the various subsystems of Groundhog into a unified whole.

Field Trials
The true test of any robot, interaction with the real world.
