The K2A mobile robot was built by Cybermation
(Roanoke, VA). The K2A platform is designed to provide
maneuverability to autonomous and tele-operated systems in
industrial environments. The synchro-drive locks all three wheels
together in both steer and drive.
When a turn is executed, all three wheels turn in unison and
trace parallel paths to each other. The result is that the platform
itself does not rotate as a turn is executed.
The K2A is currently undergoing modifications so that it will
run off a Pentium PC QNX real-time operating system.
