Portable Amphibious Spherical Rolling Robot with Live-Streaming Capability for Ground and Aquatic Deployment | Seelio
Skip to Main Content

The Portable Amphibious Spherical Robot for land and aquatic deployment is designed and developed during our 30.007 Engineering Design lesson. It is self-fabricated, which includes custom water jetted pendulum modular weight design, custom camera mounts, power trains and so on. The robot is designed to be modular such that parts can always be varied for differet usage.

It features a dual-axis pendulum mechanism, 2 live streaming cameras, 433mhz live telemetry, GPS live feedback using Google Maps, modular easy swapping of sensors design, configurable weights for adjusting the controls of the robot, waterproof.


The concept behind this design is such that we bridge the underpinning gap between land and aquatic deployment. As issues around the globe calls for large scale and easy to implement deployment in search and rescue missions, mangrove monitoring. In biological point of view, these robots are proven to be very useful when monitoring marine wild life and coral reefs as they are small and subtle in design without causing much harm to the eco system.

    My contribution in this project was to bring the team together from mechanical and electrical background. Thereby ironing out what needs to be innovated and how do we better design our power train and steering system such that it is simple yet efficient.

    I was responsible for coding the main working algorithmhat enables the functionality of the robot, integrating GPS with live feedback using Google Maps for actual location and direction. Being the project manager i too had to help design and get myself involved in the mechanical design of the robot as well such as design of the camera mounts as well as ideating on the pendulum design.
