Abstract
The requirements currently being specified for man-packable robots far exceed the capabilities of any robots currently available. The major challenges is to satisfy both the need for all terrain mobility and long mission durations (3-6 hours) in a package between 20 and 30 lbs. Autonomous Solutions Inc. proposes to solve this dilemma through the use of a shape-shifting track that effectively provides a two speed transmission. The shape-shifting track is shaped conventionally for rough terrain traversal and then transforms into the shape of a wheel for high speed efficient travel over smooth surfaces.
