Why use our robot


At Techmatics we have designed and built our own camera system with a high power lens providing true optical zoom. We do not use off the shelf cheap camera systems. Users can use the optical zoom function to clearly see the inspections to make informed assessment of the crawlspace. The optical zoom is controlled on the Herelink controller with a simple button press


We built our own PCB for our robots with built in battery protection to make it safe for our users. This unique PCB also allows for for adding other functions such has sensors and lidars to suit different applications. Every robot comes with the latest version of our PCB.

Laser Cut And Folded Aluminium Chassis

We use aluminium chassis which are laser cut and powder coated to be Dustproof and splash proof. We have designed and made the chassis ourselves and have tested it extensively on sand, snow, grass, dust, wet areas and rough ground. Our unique design performs brilliantly in all these areas. The wide surface area allows the robot to be stable and sturdy in all these areas stopping it from rolling over.

What's included

Fully built and tested custom 4WD robot

Fully built and tested custom 4WD robot. Dust proof and splash proof design. This is a single camera system.

High Quality Carry Case

Safe case Trolley included for storing and transportation of the robot. This Hard moulded plastic outer shell contains high density foam which can be shaped to accommodate any item that will fit within the dimensions of the case; making it perfect for the robot. These cases come with a solid carry handle which will stand up to quite large weights, an extendable pull handle with roller wheels for easy portability and each case is firmly clamped shut with heavy duty clasps on the sides of the case. Dimensions 615 x 485 x 240 mm.

Unlike other robots we use the Herelink controller for our robots. As one of the best controllers in the market we have programmed it to work with our robots for easy one click use to control the lights and telemetry data. The robots unique wireless video transfer technology allows seamless video transfer in hard to reach areas with ease compared to other robots. This is an all in one system and controls driving the robot and transmitting video data. Users can take photos, video with audio, draw and mark on the screen to identify damages. Battery life of the robot is also displayed on the controller screen allowing users to see how long they have battery on the robot before needing to charge.

12V Power Adapter

12V power supply included for charging the robot. As the robot is 12V it can also be charged of the car charger if required.

Additional portable batteries

Customers can also get additional portable batteries at additional cost.

Custom Removeable Wheels

Customers can choose from custom wheels.

We have designed and built a unique camera system that will allow users to see images in greater detail. The zoom lens can be controlled using the Herelink controller. Users can press a button on the controller to adjust the zoom level.


We use Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries for our robots. Most people are familiar with lithium-ion as they most likely own a smartphone, tablet, or PC. Lithium iron phosphate is a newer type of battery gaining recognition in the manufacturing industries due to its cost-effective materials and stability with high temperatures.. To charge the battery simply plug in the charge cable. The robot can be charged off the mains or car cigarette lighter.


The robot comes with a high quality sturdy transport case with rollers. Customers can extend the handle and roll the case when transporting the robot. The case is well padded on the inside providing good protection for the robot.


We have designed and built our own PCB with micro components for reliability and safety of the robot. With built in battery management system and safety triggers, our latest PCB allows for future add-ons and upgrades with both 5V and 9V plug point for devices.



The Hades-3 is a great for Subfloor inspections. The high power zoom on the robot along with the Herelink controller makes it one of the best tool for Subfloor inspections. The Large tyres on the robot allow it to negotiate rocks, debris, sand, puddles of water and other surfaces. The body is built out of anodized Aluminium metal and power coated to be splash proof and dust proof.


The Hades robots can also be used to inspect commercial spaces and air ducts . Users can take snapshots and video with the ability to mark on screen to pin point with accuracy the area of damage.


The compact splash proof and Dustproof body along with its wide tyres allows for empty storm water drain inspections. The Herelink controller wirelessly transmits the video over long distances line of sight.


Unlike other robots our robots come with four individual ball bearing planetary gear motors , making it a strong reliable and robust system. It can drag another 5-10 kg with ease. This allows the robot to be used in various other crawlspaces .
