Sketchwars - Backhoe / Submarine

Submersible Recovery Vehicle

This vehicle uses its 8 articulated legs with integrated impellers to propel itself into position. It can then settle to the work site and use a variaty of tools to complete the mission at hand.

 


Backhoe Loader

This modern backhoe uses mechanical muscles rather than hydraulics to cut down on moving parts and increase dependability. The wheels are slightly independent and can splay out to lower the center of gravity and act as outriggers.

Self-Driving Fleet Vehicle Concept

I've been wanting to put a few of my self-driving 'auto' design ideas to paper so starting with this as my test bed. These vehicles will need ways to quickly hot-swap their batteries at service bays throughout the day and communicate clearly with external users. One thing not shown here is them being covered head to toe with banner ads... but maybe next time.
