Development of Automatic Road Repair Vehicle - Field Robot 2002-01-1447

A serious issue in road surface repair is the need to work in narrow streets and the corresponding difficulty of doing a good job. At present, this type of work is extremely time-consuming and expensive and the repairs do not last long enough. In this study, we developed a field robot that implements a new concept for the fast cutting and shaving of pavement. Movement in a narrow space is facilitated by a newly developed special steering device that enables turns from 30°to the right to 90°to the left. This field robot is a promising tool that should speed up and automate the cutting of pavement for maintenance and repair.
