The chlorophyll detector we developed with NASA Ames Research is going to be launched to Mars in 2020! The final design of the detector was sent for space rating in May 2019, and while Robots Everywhere is sad to not be producing the space rated model that will be going up on the rover (NASA is doing that in-house) we are very happy to have our names on the design, and our instrument finally traveling to the red planet.
Most of our robots are electric, so we’re always on the lookout for ways to operate them cleanly. Developing and automating clean woodgas generators is a good way to do that in environments where batteries are scarce. So we did. If you’re interested in gasifier automation, contact us or check out our store. What’s wood gas? Check out Wikipedia Working with SITES Srl, we provided design and autonomous control solutions for a gasification power plant, as well as a series of small-drop hydroelectric projects.
eTrac Engineering was our first major client as a consulting company, and we operated as their principal design contractors even before founding Robots Everywhere. In 2011, we built a solar powered tracker for their barges. The BargeTrac system is a solar powered low current circuit. It is an evolution of the proprietary eTrac circuit board. BargeTrac uses two GPS units to improve positional accuracy and generate accurate heading data on metal barges on which a compass would not be effective.
