“You can not put a price on human life, so why not replace it with something that can be measured monetarily?” This statement was the inspiration for the development of a low cost un-manned ground vehicle (UGV). Current bomb disposal robots are limited in functionality, high cost, and ease of user operation. The team devised a cost effective solution that utilized human-like robotic hands that mimic operator gestures. The objectives of the project are outlined as follows: • Fully Functional UGV • Mimic Human Gestures • Lightweight and Rugged • First Person Camera Feed • Simple User Interface
