Tesla Pod | Drone Arm

Tesla Pod is my Design Master's Thesis which consists of a Modular Autonomous Electric Platform for the Transport of People and Cargo through urban areas.

The Drone Arm is a Mechanical Arm designed for the purpose of removing the modules and Transporting them between the Platforms and Tesla Valets. It has three joints, just like a human arm, controlled by hydraulic actuators and backup electric motors, in order to avoid system failures and provide high precision. The Arm has a rotating male end effector with three redundant connectors, in order to achieve a safe connection and support during the transportation and attachment procedure.
The Arm possesses all the necessary sensors for complete autonomous movement during the transportation and installation of the modules, avoiding any stationary and dynamic obstacles.

Everything in this Thesis was designed, modeled, rendered and edited by myself.
