Mr. Michael DiBono (DOE Fellow) is currently conducting his summer internship at the Applied Robotics Group at the University of Texas at Austin. Michael’s research work is on the simulation of their mobile platform, Vaultbot, using Robotic Operating System (ROS) and Gazebo.

The Vaultbot was developed for the inspection and radiation surveying of the Canyon Air Exhaust tunnel (CAEX) of the DOE Savannah River Site. The Vaultbot has a LIDAR attached to the front for mapping and navigation, along with two industrial manipulators (arms) mounted to the top for inspection.
