RHex is a portable robot with extraordinary rough terrain mobility. It climbs in rock fields, mud, sand, vegetation, railroad tracks, slopes. It has a sealed body, making it fully operational in wet weather, muddy and swampy conditions, and it can swim on the surface or dive underwater. It’s remarkable terrain capabilities have been validated in government-run independent testing.
RHex is controlled remotely from an operator control unit at distances up to 600 meters. A video uplink provides front and rear views from onboard cameras. RHex also uplinks navigational data from onboard compass and GPS and from payload sensors. A downlink allows the operator to drive and operate mission payloads.
