Polar region transport robot developed in U.S.
font size    

American scientists exhibited a polar region transport robot they had developed at the 2007 Arctic Science Summit Week, which will possibly replace humans to move goods to the designated sites in the Polar region environment.

The robot, developed by the Dartmouth College of the U.S., weighs some 60 kilograms or 130 pounds. It resembles a wheeled, squared box with a solar panel on its top. It is adaptable to a complex polar region environment and accessible to the unapproachable destinations with loads of goods and materials; it can collect ice samples on behalf of scientists over the vast expanse of the Arctic and Antarctic inaccessible to humans.
