Unmanned ground vehicles rely on Maxon motors

Unmanned ground vehicles rely on Maxon motors

Ross Robotics specialises in building unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) that replace people where they shouldn’t or can’t work. The robots are extremely resilient and designed to perform in unstructured environments, to avoid obstacles, to react to unpredictable events and cope with vibration, dust and radiation. 

It is these characteristics that have brought the company to the attention of CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, the Eden project at Chernobyl, the security forces, first responders and the emergency services. Key to the operation of the UGVs are motors from Maxon

The company first contacted Maxon in 2010. Ross Robotics CEO Philip Norman says: “We were looking for a DC motor that was easy to drive at a low speed, had a high torque and importantly was of a certain size because of the small space envelope we had. Maxon’s standard EC 45, 70 Watt, flat BLDC motors are ideal. We enjoy working with Maxon – they are always happy to help.”
