c-Link Systems Announces New Bauernhof and OmniPanzer UGVs!

Bauernhof Panzer (Farm Yard Tank)

Bauernhof Panzer (Farm Yard Tank) was conceived to work horse farms/stables, it uses the Omni Panzer chassis. As depicted the full unit has up to 5 options but ships normally with 3 attachments. Attachment 1 is a 6-axis robotic arm with a grapple for cleaning stalls, paddocks and arenas. Attachment 2 is a one-yard dump body to transport what is cleaned up. Attachment 3 is a 40”(1016mm) wide drag grading blade. The blade will maintain the programmed depth and tilt even if the chassis rises or tilts. The system is electric and if it is to be run for long periods auxiliary battery modules should be added. The attachments can be removed if not needed. When reinstalled all configuring is automatic, no human intervention required. Chassis contains 4 corner color cameras and side, front, and rear sensors to detect objects. Flashing safety lights, and color bars on the sides are visual warnings.

The unit contains a distributed multi-processor system, 16-18 processors are onboard. System contains a full inertial navigation system, periphery range sensors, GPS, wireless communications, battery charging/monitoring system and cameras. A cable connection to the attached payload is brought out through the front panel. The electronics are modular to facilitate field upgrade/repair. All cables and connections are IP67 as well as the chassis.

Autonomous Robotic Vehicle (ARV) Omni-Chassis

This is a basic autonomous robotic vehicle (ARV) Omni-chassis. An Omni-chassis can be equipped with a variety of attachments or payloads. The overall system can be preprogrammed for a job via wireless computer link or network connection. Jobs can be taught via a remote control, this is accomplished by Omni Panzer being “driven” through its path or action. The ARV constantly records position and condition information. Upon completion it becomes a looped playback, all the collision safeties are still in operation. The Omni Panzer also handles the communications and data transfer to all payloads. Our track system is not a rigid system like most equipment; it has a suspension system built in.

OmniPanzer utilizes a distributed processor system containing 12-14 processors. System contains a full inertial navigation system, periphery range sensors, GPS, wireless communications, battery charging/monitoring system and cameras. A cable connection to the attached payload is brought out through the front panel. The electronics are modular to facilitate field upgrade/repair.
