Mantaro Networks Inc. Releases the OceBot, an Urban All-Terrain Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV)

Mantaro announced today the release of the OceBot unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). The OceBot is a four-wheeled UGV with a rugged carbon fiber chassis. It is equipped with four-wheel drive and specialized wheels (patents pending) for navigation in urban terrain. The UGV can climb over obstacles and ascend or descend stairs. It comes standard with four cameras allowing 360-degree visibility of the surrounding environment. The cameras are equipped with a switchable IR filter for use in low-light situations with IR illumination. IR illumination allows camera surveillance without giving away the UGV’s presence. The front camera can be remotely controlled to tilt up or down for uses such as under-vehicle inspection. 
The OceBot UGV is 30 inches long and weighs just 17 pounds, allowing it to be easily transported. The OceBot can be lobbed where needed and can withstand drops of up to 6 feet. The OceBot is self-righting and automatically configures cameras and controls for normal operation whether it lands “right side” up or down. An onboard 250Wh battery provides run times of up to eight hours. Battery packs can be swapped in under 30 seconds, allowing rapid redeployment.
Communications and control of the OceBot is available via an integrated cellular modem or Wi-Fi radio. When connected via cellular, the OceBot can be controlled and the cameras monitored remotely from anywhere.
Additional OceBot information including contact information and data sheets are available at www.mantaro.com/ocebot or call us at 301 528 2244.
