iRobot 110 FirstLook throwable Robot breaks Cover

iRobot has unveiled today pre-production prototypes of the iRobot 110 FirstLook robot. The iRobot 110 FirstLook provides quick situational awareness, performs persistent observation and investigates confined spaces. The robot weighs less than 5 pounds and is 10 inches long. The small spy robot can be thrown into action. The 110 FirstLook survives 15-foot drops onto concrete and is waterproof to three feet. The robot climbs steps, overcomes curbs and other obstacles, turns in place and self-rights when flipped over.

With four built-in cameras and two-way audio communication, 110 FirstLook provides multi-direction situational awareness. It also has digital mesh networking capabilities, allowing multiple robots to relay radio communications over greater distances. 110 FirstLook uses a wrist-mounted, touchscreen operator control unit (OCU) with a built-in radio.

“FirstLook is going to be a very important tool for warfighters and first responders,” said Robert Moses, president of iRobot’s Government and Industrial Robots division. “Given its small size, ruggedness and state-of-the-art capabilities, the robot is ideal for a range of infantry missions and special operations.”

Features

  • Portable
    FirstLook is light, small and stores in a standard load-out. The robot weighs less than 5 pounds and is 10 inches long, 9 inches wide and 4 inches tall.
  • Rugged
    FirstLook is throwable. The robot survives 15-foot drops onto concrete and is waterproof to 3 feet.
  • Mobile
    FirstLook is maneuverable in a variety of environments. The robot climbs steps up to 8 inches high, overcomes curbs and other obstacles, turns in place and self-rights when flipped over.
  • Flexible
    FirstLook operates efficiently in challenging conditions. The robot gets more than 6 hours of runtime on a typical mission and up to 10 hours performing stationary video monitoring. The robot uses IR illumination to enhance low light and no light operations.

iRobot will demonstrate 110 FirstLook for military and law enforcement personnel. The robot will be available for delivery to customers in 2012.
