RE3TH (RoboticEarthquak3vicTimHelper) is an intelligent robot built for the Nature’s Fury Challenge. RE3TH detects earthquakes with the intelligent Detect3r System. When an earthquake occurs, it rattles the vehicle which brings down the black pole. The Color Sensor detects ambient lighting. When the pole closes over the color sensor, the ambient reading plunges to very low numbers. That’s how RE3TH detects when an earthquake has just occurred. The RE3TH searches for a signal from the IR Beacon. The beacon acts as the victims help-box (think of it as a 911 call). The victims need food after such a disastrous natural disaster. They use the IR Beacon to call for help from the RE3TH. When RE3TH picks up the signal, it uses its Find3r System to find the victim following the IR signal. With its front grasping claw, it releases the care packages filled with food to the victims. The drivetrain is designed to withstand the rough terrain to travel through. Rugged off-road tires are driven through a powerful gear train. It drives similarly to a tank. I hope you guys like RE3TH. Special thanks to Lama-mantis for his support and help.
