The Nomad 200 or N200 was a commercial research robot manufactured in the 1990s by Nomadic Technologies, Inc. It was a cylindrical robot around 1 metre tall and 20 inches in diameter and moved on three wheels. It could travel at 0.5 metres per second and rotate at 60 degrees per second.
The basic robot, comprising the mobile base and the control system, cost $16,000 in 1990. It could be equipped with 16 sonar sensors mounted around the circumference, 16 infra-red sensors, a magnetic compass, a TV camera and laser rangefinder system and two rows of ten contact sensors. The additional sensor systems cost between $1,500 and $7000.
