To provide a platform that can change shape, status, and form for the rapid development of Artificial Intelligent, we describe a design concept of aeroamphibious unmanned boat-car-plane combination robot and its development plan. Considering the facts of the design contradictions among aerodynamics, hydromechanics, and powertrain, this design focuses on the land collaborative algorithm as well. We divided the design tasks into the aeroamphibious robot with sensor, action and communication parts. For the sensor module and communication, we prepare basic sensor and keep other sensor communication interfaces available. As the robot action, we choose roller wheel and proposed a three-mode transportation platform with only one engine. We follow open source strategy of both software and hardware to make the robot develop quick, upgradeable, expandable. We introduced a new multiple-party formula that was used to coordinate more than two moving platforms, which enable it meets both academic research and market development needs.
