Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase

Goals for this phase:

All of the above objectives were accomplished in the Problem Definition Phase.

Project Summary

Robotter is an amphibious biomimetic robot designed to mimic the look and functionality of an otter both on land and in the water. A functioning prototype was created last year, but it currently only has walking capabilities and several of its components are broken.

The goal of this project is to create an amphibious robot that can transition from land to water by fixing and improving the existing platform. The focus will be on improving the walking capabilities and adding the ability to move through water, all while be controlled wirelessly from an RC controller.
