Moogle Inspection Bot: is That a Robot in Your Crawlspace?

by Range

This 6-inch robot is supposed to be able to go where no human has gone before: into small crawlspaces to see what’s up. Daiwan House will be putting this ‘bot on the market in April 2011 and hope making inspections a wee bit easier, thanks to their pint-sized robot pal.

The Moogle was developed with the Chiba Institute of Technology. It was especially designed for the way houses are made in Japan, since most of them don’t have basements, but have to be elevated 20″ above the ground for ventilation purposes.

The ‘bot is controlled remotely via a computer interface. Moogle’s got a wireless LAN connection, LED lighting, and has a laser range finder. There’s a wide-angle camera and a CCD camera too, so you can see where its going. It weighs about 15kg and will work for an hour on one charge. It will cost ¥40,000 ($500 USD) to rent for a month or ¥200,000,000 ($24,600 USD) to purchase.
