UX-1 Plastic Proto Stability Tests, Tampere University of Technology. Courtesy of Jussi Aaltonen.
Validation and simulations of key components for the UX‐1 robot are being done. Testing is done in conditions similar (as similar as possible) to the ones present in deep flooded mines: pressure, low visibility, confined space and difficulty to access. This video shows one of these tests: a stability test done in a pool in Tampere University of Technology (TUT), using a plastic mock‐up of the future UX‐1 robot. To analyse this type of control, TUT used factors as accelearation and angle of the horizontal thrusters.
In the video, the movement of the plastic UX-1 mock-up can be observed.
