Helper Robot

Project Status: Backlog


Helper bot is intended to be a tracked robot with both autonomous (making it a robot) and remote control. The first prototype will be a small scale working model that I can then scale up to a full size version.

Brief & Inspiration

These two photographs are of German remote control tanks, captured by the British during World War II. There were three varieties of these Funklenkpanzers with this being the smallest. The basic concept for these tanks was to remotely drive them up to enemy weapons, armoured vehicles or emplacements and then detonate the charge that they carried.
