This project focuses on the design and implementation of an intelligent Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) robot to provide law enforcement agencies with a cost effective and reliable robotic platform. The key features of the robot include an intuitive user interface which provides additional sensor feedback and enhanced visual awareness, an onboard three degree of freedom manipulator arm, and a dexterous gripper allowing for the removal of detonators. The robot provides a safe distance threat assessment and increased capacity for explosive ordinance disposal, improving the effectiveness of bomb disposal teams. The robot's low-cost, intuitive operation and ease-of-maintenance promote its widespread appeal, thereby saving the lives of both law enforcement personnel and civilians.
