Probe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (306 words)
A robotic probe is a device that uses onboard instruments to gather and relay a variety of telemetry to controllers from remote, hazardous or otherwise difficult to reach locations.
Probes may return their data over radio links or be physically tethered to controllers or another device, or to collect and return physical samples.
The word probe is also used to describe surgical instruments, such as a laparoscope, a device that assists with surgery on the human body by allowing doctors to see and manipulate organs without making large incisions.
Ford Probe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (523 words)
A sporty coupe, the Probe was intended to fill the market niche formerly occupied by the Capri in Europe, and although it was intended as the replacement to the Ford EXP, it was also considered a possible replacement for the Ford Mustang in the North American market.
The Probe was mechanically identical to the Mazda MX-6, and both cars shared the Mazda GD platform (1988-1992) and GE platform (1993-1997).
Originally, the Probe was only supposed to be on a year hiatus, as there were plans to bring it back in 1999 as a sibling to the Contour-based, FWD Mercury Cougar.
