A continued increase in computing power, sensor capability, software functionality, immersive interfaces and hardware modularity has given robot designers seemingly endless potential in the area of mobile robotics. While some mobile robotic system designers are focusing on expensive, full-featured platforms, developers are realising the advantages of emerging technology in providing small, low-cost mobile reconnaissance vehicles as expendable teleoperated robotic systems. The OzBotTM mobile reconnaissance platform presents one such system. The design objectives of the OzBotTM platform focus on the development of inexpensive, lightweight carry-case sized robots for search and rescue operations, law enforcement scenarios and hazardous environment inspection. The incorporation of Haptic augmentation provides the teleoperator with improved task immersion for an outdoor search and rescue scenario. Achieved in cooperation with law enforcement agencies within Australia, this paper discusses the performance of the first four revisions of the OzBotTM platform.
