 25 FOUR TRACKS RIGID VEHICLES, HEAVY

Hi traq vehicle of royal ihc

Hi-Traq vehicle of IHC Merwede Group, now Royal IHC, The Netherlands, 3000 employees in many countries. They built all is necessary to work on see or under the see (vessels, dredging, mining, offshore and marine markets). The Hi-Traq is an underwater four tracks vehicle, revealed in June 2014, very maneuverable and automatically self-leveling, used for cable laying in offshore wind farms or maintenance. 1,25 MW, 50 t, sufficiently heavy to be stable in currents.The operator is remotly located, using a fiber optic passing by lift umbilical. Hi-Traq has been developed by Northeast England-based IHC Engineering Business. It was built with help of support from the European Regional Development Fund,

Peristaltic locomotion robot 2012

Peristaltic locomotion robot, 2012. This robot, built by Case Western Reseve University, has a structurre allowing it to move like a worm. The concept uses a continuously deformable outer mesh that interpolates the body position between discrete actuators. This prototype uses a continuous braided mesh exterior to produce waves of motion along the body of the robot.

Such contraction movement and progressive relaxation is called peristalsis. The part where the diameter is high serves as support on the ground while the diameter decreases and elongates moving ahead slightly above the ground.   http://biorobots.case.edu/projects/softworm/   http://vimeo.com/67677015               https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6mA8walaSk

Ultra heavy lift amphibious connector uhac

Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector, UHAC is a proto 1/2 scale to replace LCAC Air Cushioned. Speed is the same but range increases from 86 to 200 nautical miles. Payload is increased 3 times. This amphibian is able to go inland in mud, marshes thanks to its pneumatic tracks made of low pressure captive air cells. Air cells also propel it in water, behaving like blades. It remembers PATA, Scale Test Bed, AIROLL or Water Walk issued from Kristi KT-4  of the 60s. (See chapter 'Pneumatic Tracks'). Old projects, modernized, bring out cartons.
