SwagBot The Robotic Cowboy

SwagbotSwagBbot is a robot created by Salah Sukkarieh for the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR).  Salah Sukkarieh is also a professor  of robotics at Sydney University.

SwagBot has many capabilities like towing, monitoring animals, herding, the ability to handle rugged terrain and our favorite, the ability to coordinate with aerial vehicles (drones).

SwagBot can travel up to 12 mph on smooth terrain, but how long it’s battery lasts has not been revealed yet.

About the only thing SwagBot cannot do is mend fences.¬† Watch SwagBot go through it’s paces in the video below.
