    Autonomous Systems Lab in Switzerland presented the design of a six-wheel vehicle. Shrimp Rover is designed to solve some problems like raised stairs and navigation through tough geographical terrain.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Most of rural Pakistan is unpaved and has unstructured paths. So there is a need for a vehicle that is highly maneuverable and easily overcome tough terrains. With the help of our shrimp rover which is designed to operate in unstructured environments, access to these places can be increased. In our
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Geological explorers can also benefit from the shrimp rover. Another application for this rover is for rescue missions where there is a danger to a human rescuer and mine detection for military installations. We can reduce the spread to medical workers and areas outside the quarantine.
How will the solution works
    Shrimp Rover has six wheels that operate separately. It has 4 wheels on a pair of parallel bogies. It has one front and one rear wheel. Each wheel has a motor attached to it. Using a microcontroller preferably Arduino, speed will be controlled through a H-bridge. Direction is changed by the rotation of front and back wheels with the help of servo motors. In order to control the rover from a distance a radio controller will be used.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are the manufacturers of UGVs and agriculture drones. Also students working on alternative solutions to mobile robotics. Our solution is better in cost to performance ratio compared to others. With the use of readily available parts it is also unmatched in reliability and repairs.
