InterTest SKU: custom_04

Challenge:

The customer requested a custom engineered camera head developed to present to a notable unmanned ground vehicle company. The customer requested the camera head to attach as an accessory to the available ports on the robot, high end camera functionality and the ability to hold the product in the robots gripper. The camera needed to be high quality, LED illumination and zoom capability in a rugged, waterproof housing and connector. It was also requested the camera have the ability to tilt on a vertical access. The intended purpose of the tilt and zoom camera attachment was for the end user to use this accessory to look inside or underneath suspicious vehicles. The camera needed to be controlled through the robot company’s proprietary command and viewing controller. Lastly, the camera unit needed to fit into a certain price point to be a viable accessory for the robot.

We integrated the camera into a suitable package and tested in various conditions and environments.
