Tel Aviv University Develops Bat-Like Autonomous Terrestrial Robot

Dubbed “Robat”, the machine relies solely on echos and sounds to maneuver through and map environments, without requiring visual input, which makes it suitable for functioning in dark surroundings

Researchers from Tel Aviv University have developed an autonomous robot capable of navigating using a Sonar technique similar to that used by bats, the university announced Thursday. Dubbed “Robat”, the machine comes equipped with an ultrasonic speaker and two microphones capable of receiving ultrasonic waves. Robat relies solely on echos and sounds to maneuver through and map unknown environments, without requiring visual input, which makes it suitable for functioning in dark, low vision surroundings.
