Amphibious Rover for Disaster Aftermath


The Amphibious Rover is a system capable of exploring uneven terrains, both on land and in areas flooded by water. The rover has a communications system used to interact with survivors and conduct triage. Moreover, the rover is equipped with a solar panel to increase the efficiency of operation and save time. 

Community Benefit: The rover is designed to be used for rescue missions during the aftermath of a natural disaster; more specifically, hurricanes. The communications system allows for rescue crews to find and confirm survivors that need assistance. Having a rover that searches for survivors will decrease the risks taken by rescuers, reduce the time of response, and allow for better utilization of the workforce.
