Robotex worked closely with end users to develop an affordable, durable tactical robot that realistically fits their needs. There are other robots in this price range and other robots that perform similar functions, but Robotex says none of them combine the functionality, durability, and value the same way the Avatar does. Features include a user-friendly hand-held controller, 5-axis manipulator arm, all terrain navigation, two-way communication, video recording, and 60-degree incline climbing capability. A wide array of accessories are available to fill the needs of first responders.
