Note: Shrimp Rover Robot project was done during the years 2011 – 2013 when Madi was a master’s student.

Shrimp rover robot first introduced in 2001 for military applications:

Shrimp Rover history

We have built a similar robot but instead of military applications, it can have rescue application by embedding Vital Sign Monitoring Sensors like CO2 sensor. The robot can also pass the obstacles by lifting the front leg.

Mechanical Design

Figure below shows the mechanical design of the robot:
