We made this project to showcase how you can use 2 Tactigon Skin to control a complex device such as an EODbot (Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robot). The robot itself consists of a tracked rover and a robotic arm and Camera.
These type of devices are used in dangerous zones like minefields and in counterterrorism operations to check if in buildings and vehicles there are explosive devices. Every day they’re used in trainings for bomb squad staff to practice defuse and destruction of explosive devices. In fictional universes, like the Battlefield franchise, the EODbot is a popular gadget used to destroy vehicles and objects to free up the road.
