MRZR X turned out quite compact: it can be loaded in a cargo helicopter and deliver to almost any point of the operation. The “brain” of the unmanned vehicle is Autonomous Modular Robotic Applique Kit (M-RAK). It combines cameras, sensors, lidars and other devices into a single system. M-RAK supports several modes of operation: fully Autonomous driving, follow ahead of going transport, the assistant mode, when the robotic system adjusts the movement and the control mode of the vehicle in the distance.
