The SwagBot is Designed to Roam and Oversee Australian Farmland

The SwagBot is a specially engineered all-terrain patrolling robot built to roam the Australian countryside and farmlands as a way to keep track of the expansive land. The robot is built to be autonomous so that it can move freely and provide precise patrolling in place of humans.

In order for the SwagBot to be able to move seamlessly through different types of ground, the bot has a spider-like build complete with elongated legs, tall height and wide wheels so that it can move past mud, water and tall grass without getting stuck. In addition, the bot is electrically powered and can be programmed to survey abundant landscapes, check for invasive species and plants and even herd animals.

The design replaces the need for human employment to do these several tasks with one autonomous robot.
