“Now, we’re taking the same competencies we’ve built up over time and applying those to unmanned robotic platforms. We can get an ARGO unit anywhere people need it to go, just without the people,” says Buck.
That means taking the dull, dirty and downright dangerous jobs out of people’s hands and passing them on to an autonomous vehicle. “If we can provide a robot that can get anywhere someone might need it — whether that’s bringing supplies to military troops in challenging, hostile battlefields, or resupplying equipment to people working in dangerous commercial applications — we’re taking people out of a treacherous situation.”
Recognizing the opportunity to increase safety with battery-powered autonomous vehicles, ARGO engaged Vanguard ®, a commercial brand of Briggs & Stratton Corporation, to develop a lithium-ion battery that could stand up to the rigorous environments in which its vehicles operate.
