Search and Rescue Robot Screens

My students need TV screens for robot search and rescue missions.

My Students

Our student population is from an underserved rural North Carolina Appalachian Mountain area school district. Manufacturing and Engineering jobs in our area is beginning to grow which has sparked the interests of our school district to refocus on these career pathway.

Our Technology, Engineering and Design program focuses on teaching the pathway of advanced engineering and manufacturing in the local and regional area by using sustainable energy and transportation projects.

We design and fabricate robots, remote control vehicles, gravity cars, small electric vehicles and full size street legal electric vehicles and compete in county, regional, state and national competitions.

My Project

Our classes would like to compete in search and rescue robot challenges in our region and state. The competitions require our robots to simulate disaster rescue missions (rescue missions for example in the aftermath of earthquakes). During a simulated rescue mission robots are driven remotely using cameras that wirelessly relay the video and audio to a TV screen. We have five robots and five cameras but no TV screens. These screens would be large enough to see the fine details required in a search and rescue mission. Of course we would like to have one camera per robot but understand the limits of space and costs. Two would allow us the opportunity to run two robots together during one rescue mission.
