The   Forager-T   is   an   Omni-chassis   in   a   family   of   autonomous   robotic   vehicles (ARV)   from   c-Link   Systems,   Inc.      The   Omni-chassis   creates   the   ability   to   build upon    a    unified    drive    chassis    enhancing    the    creation    of    different    end-usage systems. The   Forager-T   Omni-chassis   contains   a   locomotion   system,   a   power   plant   and   all the   control   electronic.      The   chassis   itself   is   constructed   of   aluminum   with   all welded seams. The finished chassis is IP64 rated. Locomotion   is   achieved   through   a   ten   inch   wide   track   system   that   is   electrically driven.      Steering   is   accomplished   through   the   use   of   the   industry   standard   “skid- steer.” The   main   power   plant   is   160Ah   /   640Ah   battery   system.   The   80Ah   system currently   is   in   the   shipping   systems   and   is   comprised   of   SLA   batteries.   The   640Ah is    an    optional    system    due    to    the    cost    LiFePO    batteries.    Both    systems    are comprised   in   banks   allowing   change-out   and   contain   monitor/charging   circuits. The   monitor/charging   modules   communicate   with   the   core   processor   to   relay information to the operator. Electronics   system   comprises   of   a   multiprocessor   core   block,   locomotion   system controller,    inertial    navigation    system,    payload    control    system/interface    and communications.      The   system   resides   in   a   water   tight   case   (IP68)   that   can   be removed   in   the   field.   Power   distribution/charging/monitoring   are   contained   in   a second   case   similar   to   the   main   electronics.   The   systems   are   based   on   Freescale Semiconductor’s Tower System.
