The Robots are coming!


One of the most innovative uses of the Segway Robot Mobility Platform (RMP) is Marathon Robotic’s ‘Rover’ – a free-ranging robotic targeting system for live-fire training. This system provides challenging, realistic training for anti-terrorism, police and military forces.

Developed in Australia in conjunction with their Department of Defence and built on the RMP 200 platform, this ‘best-in-the-world’ system deploys a fleet of robots that can execute complex scenarios, move in and out of buildings, and go anywhere a human can. The robots are human-like in size, shape and speed, and lean forward when accelerating, back when slowing just like a running person.

Watch a video of the robots in action, find out more and download a spec sheet at Marathon’s website.

Segway, Inc. offer a variety of RMP platforms, including omni-directional crawlers, Segway PT-like self-balancing units, and a powerful four-wheeler. For more information contact Segway New Zealand.
