“One robot meeting needs in many markets” was the theme of a presentation by robot designer Adam Stager of TRIC Robotics and the University of Delaware given to Dover Capital City Rotary.

TRIC Robotics focuses on the remote exploration of unsafe and unreachable spaces through the use of multi-functional robots that can capture video, sensor data and a range of geospatial information, said Stager, a doctoral candidate. The designers keep costs down by starting with a "bare bones" robot platform and select the options that best fit customer needs.

They have identified several markets and plan to begin custom designing robots that meet the needs of SWAT teams in law enforcement, explosive ordnance disposal; event monitoring; fire response; habitat monitoring; manufacturing, Hazmat and nuclear inspections. For more, visit tricrobotics.com.
