We work with scientists to support their polar research goals.
Our mission is to expand human understanding of the Arctic and Antarctica by giving polar researchers access to high-tech, safe, and efficient observation tools.
Cool Robot was developed in the Polar Regions Robotics lab at Dartmouth College. It consists of a rigid chassis with four electric motors powering four wheels. The robot is covered in a solar panel superstructure that provides power for movement and instrumentation. Cool Robot is best suited to towing lighter instruments of hard, even surfaces.
Developed by Polar Research Equipment to operate on hard or soft surfaces, Frosty Boy has extremely low ground pressure, well below even a human on skis. An articulated front axle maintains traction during turns, and allows for some adaptability on uneven terrain.
The second robot developed by the Polar Regions Robotics lab at Dartmouth College. It has four wheels and four motors mounted to a chassis with a single central articulation. This articulation allows it to better maintain ground contact and traverse sastrugi. Yeti is best suited to towing mid weight instruments over hard, uneven surfaces.
