Abstract

Mobile robots are often proposed as a favorable substitute to human correspondence in emergency response, disaster relief, and environmental monitoring scenarios. In this work, the next iteration of the Aquapod is proposed as a method to facilitate collection of subsurface liquid samples in order to assess toxicity levels in a body of water. This amphibious small form-factor robot is equipped with a buoyancy control unit, detachable fluidic sampling unit, and a wide range of sensing and processing capabilities. The robot was designed to move and collect water samples to a maximum depth of ten meters. Its unique form of tumbling locomotion results in a versatile platform that can be used in both terrestrial and aquatic environments leveraging its high mobility-to-size ratio.
