    The Mars Bot is a self-propelled solar generator

    -

    The Jaquery Mars Bot shows what solar energy supply on the move could look like in the future. The robot follows the path of the sun, adjusts its location accordingly and always holds its high-efficiency foldable panel at the optimal angle.

    Anyone who has ever traveled with a solar panel knows that you have to constantly reposition and align it in order to achieve the optimal power output. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Jaquery will use the Mars Bot to show how solar energy supply when camping or barbecue parties could become much easier in the future.

    The Mars Bot is named because of its similarity to the rover “Opportunity,” which explored the red planet on behalf of NASA. The Mars Bot is named because of its similarity to the rover “Opportunity,” which explored the red planet on behalf of NASA.

    The 70 kilogram heavy and The 114 x 81.5 x 81 centimeter small robot moves independently where the sun shines and changes its position according to its course. With a top speed of 30 kilometers per hour, it can travel very quickly. So that it doesn’t cause an accident, it is equipped with sensors, laser radar and cameras to automatically avoid obstacles. Because he needs to generate electricity and not waste it, his navigation system always guides him to the shortest route to his destination.

    Once there, its solar panel, which can deliver up to 600 watts, unfolds on a swivel arm. It aligns itself at the ideal angle to the sun and also constantly adapts to its path. According to Jaquery, a yield of up to 15 kilowatt hours (kWh) per day is possible in this way. The energy is stored in a long-lasting Lithium iron phosphate battery that holds 5000 watt hours. If necessary, the Mars Bot can also drive itself to a charging station.

    A limited edition at most

    The robot has a robust, IP65 waterproof and dustproof body that can withstand a lot. However, in extreme weather conditions, it warns its users and returns to its station on command.

    Jaquery does not plan to mass produce the Mars Bot for the time being, but some of the technologies used could soon be used in other devices from the manufacturer. However, there is a small chance of being able to buy a Mars Bot; Jaquery is considering a limited edition for the company’s birthday next fall.
