The image gallery displays possible configurations of this robot. See description and options below to configure your robot.
This is a custom robot based on a combination of our popular HD2 platform and our SD6 robot. Mechanically its a HD2, but with the SD6 controls (NI Labview and a cRIO.) A FLIR camera mounted on a 12ft Zippermast gives the robot unmatched surveillance capabilities.
The standard SD6 control package includes a National Instruments CompactRIO embedded controller programmable by the LabVIEW graphical development environment for rapid prototyping and deployment. A LIDAR sensor is also included with the package. LabVIEW example programs for the SD6 can be downloaded from ni.com/code/robotics.
See our HD2 robot for more information on the platform this was built on. We included the option to widen the robot 6 inches to make room for the 12 foot zippermast and designed a custom lid to cover the mast.
An Etrovision Video Server, 2 IR Cameras and a FLIR T640 are used for vision.
Below are some videos of the SD6 running NI LabVIEW on the embedded CompactRIO controller:
The SD6 was designed and built specifically for National Instruments to run NI LabVIEW and has a cRIO in it. It includes a WiFi interface and sensors.
pack of 2, 12mm Hex wheel adapter for 6mm shaft
light-weight aluminum shaft adapters convert a typical motor output shaft into a 12 mm hex shaft that is compatible with many RC wheels.
The B3 Compact charger is a very simple to use charger for 2S and 3S battery packs. No need for additional power supplies or 12v batteries as this little unit has its own built in power supply that can be powered with 100-240v.
