Transcript of The TALON robot

Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?

The end effector is multifunctional and it can use weapons including M16 rifles, M240 machine guns, and a 40 millimeter grenade launcher. They initially worked with Special Forces on classified missions in Afghanistan and now are working on Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) missions.

What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
The TALON robot is designed to do military missions ranging from reconnaissance to weapons delivery. It has a arm gripper to hold weapons and use them, like a human can.
Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope
The TALON have been in active military services since the year 2000. Its double jointed arm can preform multiple tasks. It can climb stairs and operate for seven days straight before it needs its batteries to be charged.
How is the robot taught to perform its task?

The robot knows what to do from a handheld device that soldiers operate. Soldiers who operate TALON can be as far as 1,000 meters away from the robot.

What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?

Some of the sensors that the TALON has include: many cameras (color, black and white, infrared, thermal, and zero light), an arm, gripper manipulators, pan/tilt, two-way communicators, nuclear/biological/chemical sensors

What are advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task?

Some advantages of the TALON is that it can do multiple military missions to help out the army and that it can wield and properly use a variety of guns. A disadvantage is that the robot is 100 pounds and hard to carry.

What are the impacts that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience?
The impact this robot has on its intended audience is that it shows the military that the weapon delivery and reconnaissance missions can be preformed by a robot that can use a weapon, instead of a soldier that risks its life trying to do those missions.

What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?

Some jobs that the TALON creates is that somebody has to control the robot, and that somebody needs to deploy and build more TALONs.

What do you think how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future?

In the future, the TALON might be able to fly around the battlefield and maybe send messages to ground soldiers where enemies are or where bombs could be.
