Title: MOBILE SERVICE ROBOT CAPABLE OF COLLECTING BIOLOGICAL AND SOIL SAMPLES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a mobile service robot with all-terrain features that allows you to support the implementation of tasks in the area of environmental monitoring. Said robot comprises a coating of aluminium alloys and plastics with good corrosion resistance allowing its use in outdoor environments near saltwater areas, such as estuarine environments. The mechanical platform corresponding to the set constituted by the support structure (14, 15, 16), the transmission blocks (11), the rims of wheels (17), the tires (18) and driving motors (12) and steering (13) presents robustness levels and manoeuvrability suitable for navigation not only on solid grounds but also on sandy or muddy areas. The robot allows the collection of biological and soil samples for later laboratory analysis incorporating for such an interchangeable system comprising an anthropomorphic robotic arm with at least five degrees of freedom, an apparatus for collecting soil samples by drilling and an apparatus for collecting biological samples by drag.
