Discipline: Professional Concept

triBot is a research robot which collects data for science and research in extreme environments such as glaciers and polar regions. In times of climate change these regions move into the focus of global research activities. In order to operate reliably in these areas, highly flexible movement patterns are necessary. Thanks to its tetrahedral geometry there is no up, down, left and right for the triBot. To move forward, the sides of the tetrahedron are varied, the balance point shifts and the triBot tilts to the side. With its highly specialized sensor unit the triBot collects important data for future climate models.
