R.I.D. Our Robot Ick Disposer (R.I.D.) is a machine that will sniff out, scoop up, and then burn pet waste. A smell detector locates the poop in the yard. The Robot Ick Disposer goes over to it, and rakes it into a hose.

The owner will program the robot to stay inside the yard or the area that they want kept clean.
We have designed the machine with six large wheels that swivel like the Mars Rover, so it won't get stuck. R.I.D. can travel on rough terrain and not tip over. The machine would be able to work around obstacles in the yard. If it bumps into something it will automatically back up and change direction. For information on the inside of the machine see the next page.
