ZEUS UGV – Mechanical Environmental Capability 

MECHANICAL ENVIRONMENTAL CAPABILITY

ZEUS UGV mechanical environmental capability

Rough handling, vibration, being dropped and tipping over are all potential hazards to your UGV and you need to ensure that none of these ‘mechanical environments’ will damage it or stop your mission from being successful.

VIBRATION

But how can you be reassured that a UGV can withstand these forces? Zeus is designed to be used in these demanding environments, and special consideration has been given to these factors. Simulation of, for example, vibration and being dropped can be carried out in a test facility to international standards and this can go some way to ensuring that in the real world, those kinds of forces won’t cause accelerated degradation of your UGV, shortening the operating life.

SHOCK

It isn’t only during use that these factors can have an effect. Transportation, for example in an EOD response vehicle over rough roads and terrain, can also cause vibration and shock loads to the UGV, and these have also been taken into account during the design of Zeus.

Zeus has been tested to EN 60068 by an independent test house to ensure it meets the requirements of police and military customers, ensuring it will function correctly in the environments that you need to operate.
