Exotic robotics defined by the CYCOGS® brand, Medium Sized Robot (MSR)



The CYCOGS® Medium Sized round Robot (MSR) is a heavy duty, full featured independent robotic system. 

It is self-contained, battery powered holonomic movement capable mobile robot featuring several of our (CPS) Cyber-Physical Systems.

based on our patented technology.  This also incorporates our Hi2WAM and Wheel Assembly (WA) , Compact Gear Motor (CGM) drives and our RESS emergency safety systems.

Hi2WAM

The lower part of the MSR robot is the robot base,

housing a six-wheel drive system separated into three Holonomic intelligent active suspension drive modules (Hi2WAM’s). 
The robot base additionally provides room for three huge exchangeable battery bays.

The mid section contains a modular sensor ring (SRing showed in red),

two Hybrid Snake Arm systems (SNARM’s) creating a huge working envelope and strong load capacity. 
The two independent rotary positional modular hybrid snake arms (HYSA / Snarm) (Illustrated extended in an over and under configuration) provide manipulator capability.  Please note:  absolute positioning and repeatability specifications are not comparable to traditional fixed industrial arms, as the compliant arms and connectivity to a mobile platform with an active suspension on possibly uneven flooring may make precise arm operations less accurate.

An upper chassis section contains electronics and computers and a modular sensor ring (SRing showed in red). 

For sensing, the CYCOGS® MSR robot uses the two modular sensor rings (SRing showed in red) which are capable of rotary position placement, track, scan and rotation movements. 
Additionally, the two rotating sensor arrays (SRing) provides primary sensor coverage employing fewer, but more capable sensors.  Using two primary sensor arrays allows for stereoscopic vision / sensing with “Eyes Everywhere” and allows for following and guiding each of the two independently operating hybrid snake arms.

Please note that both the modular SRing and Snarm systems are capable of continuous direction independent rotations.

The MSR robot is medium sized, yet it can still maneuver through a majority of doorways.  Applications can vary, the robot is designed to perform work or services.
