Description and Operational Instructions of the Demo TMRRAuthor/Presenter: Hong, Daehie; Mueller, Keith J.; Stiles, James M.; Velinsky, Steven A.
The Tethered Mobile Routing Robot (TMRR) has been developed as a general crack sealing machine that will sense, rout, and seal both longitudinal and transverse cracks in a given workspace located behind a support vehicle. This robot has been developed by the Advanced Highway Maintenance & Construction Technology Research Center at the University of California at Davis. The full sized TMRR weighs approximately 4400 N [1000 1b.] and requires power from a large support vehicle. Due to its size, it was deemed unfeasible to transport the large TMRR to trade shows and conferences. A demo TMRR was constructed for the express purpose to demonstrate capabilities and special design features of the larger version. This report describes its mechanical and control structure, and also includes operational instructions.
