GIBBON (Harsh Environment Operation Mobile Robot)
|A robot’s operational efficiency is most emphasized in the environments where humans cannot reach.
Gibbon, developed with KHNP in 2016, is a mobile hydraulic manipulator based robot that can safely and freely relocate and retrieve hazardous objects in harsh conditions.
The mobile platform of Gibbon has four independently controlled wheels with suspension and can drive in various terrains. The manipulator uses 4-module mHPU (Mobile Hydraulic Power Unit), which increases the mobility of the overall system. Both the mobile platform and the manipulator are built light weight so that a person can lift each components. The comprehensive system is also remotely controlled, providing easy control for the user.
