Abstract: The project involved the exploratory development of a small all-terrain robot that has excellent mobility performance in the urban environment. The main motivating force behind this project was to have a small man-portable robot to perform urban reconnaissance and surveillance for security purpose, as well as to perform urban search and rescue for civil defence purpose.The scope of the project focused mainly on the mechanical design of an articulated track robot, which has a maximum speed of 0.9m/s, and is able to overcome 18cm step, 30cm ditch, 45A? slope and climb staircase. The most crucial articulated track mechanism is made up of the vehicle drive mechanism and vehicle flipper mechanism. During the design of the robot, component packaging, ruggedization and modularity had mostly been taken care.This document gave a full documentation of the mechanical design of the various mechanical modules and the four prototype developments of the robot.
