Armadillo is a series of field robots designed and developed by the University of Southern Denmark in collaboration with several companies. They all run the FroboMind software platform and have been used in various research projects within crop scouting, mechanical and chemical weeding, mine detection etc.
The Armadillo robots up to version III all used a FroboBox robot computer tailored to field robots with respect to interfaces, rugged casing etc. There is some documentation for this computer availble here. The FroboBox has now evolved into a commercial product named Conpleks Robotech Controller 701. This product is installed on Armadillo IV and V.
