Transcript of iRobot 710 Kobra

Because of the camera view for the controller of the robot, the iRobot 710 Kobra doesn't need any sensors. It is all manually controlled.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Some advantages are that it can fit in most SUV's , it can climb stairs easily, and it can go up to 8 mph. Some more advantages are that it is not affected by light, smoke, air, dust, or fire. Some of the disadvantages are that it cannot learn everything like a human can but is safer than having a human do the job. As you can see, the advantages out weigh the disadvantages.
Where The 710 Kobra is Used, And More About It's Flexibility And Payload
End Effector
The iRobot 710 Kobra has four different things on the end effector. One of them is the camera. It can gather information by taking a look at the scene. Another one is the grabber. The grabber picks things up, breaks windows, cuts through seat belts, and opens doors. One other part on the end effector is the microphone. This picks up any sound in range. The last thing is the disruptor. The disruptor destroys potential bombs.
What Task Does It Perform?

The 710 Kobra in Action
How Is The Kobra Taught?
The clever Aware2 Software helped program this bot. The 710 Kobra responds from a remote control which has a range of roughly 300 yards. The remote is shaped like a video game controller so it is easy to operate.
The iRobot 710 Kobra can break windows, opens doors, and can cut through seat belts. The 710 Kobra is also used to detonate bombs. It gives you immediate EOD capabilities. It also can locate specific packages. Hazardous materials such as dangerous chemicals, radiological and nuclear materials, and more. All of this can be done from
a safe distance.
The battlefield and searching for hazardous
materials are two places where the Kobra does its best work. This iRobot product can reach a whopping 11 feet! The arm weighs 133 pounds alone. In all it weighs 500 pounds. It has 4 joints. One is in the treads, one by the beginning of the arm, one in the middle, and the last by the end effector. The 710 Kobra can carry a total of 330 pounds.
No Sensors, But it Doesn't Matter!
Impact on Intended Audience
Because this robot locates suspicious packages, disarms bombs, and disposes hazardous materials, it makes the job safe for the people that normally do the same thing.
Possible Improvements on the iRobot 710 Kobra
Jobs and Careers
Some improvements this robot could be able to make in the future are improved self-defense and lighter weight. They could put a gun on the body strictly for self-defense. They could take out less important parts to make it lighter.
Some new jobs and careers this robot can make are the maker of it and the operator. Some might think it takes away jobs from EOD and other specialists, but it could save their lives also.
