Army Robot Detects, Shares Environmental Changes with Human Teammate in Real Time

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
The robotic component of a human-robot team designed by the U.S. Army is capable of detecting physical changes in 3D and sharing the information it collects with a human in real time. Augmented reality enables the delivery of information, allowing the human recipient to assess the information and promptly determine action steps. A team of scientists from the U.S. Army demonstrated the relationship in a structured real-world environment by pairing a small, autonomous, lidar-equipped mobile ground robot with a human teammate outfitted with AR glasses. As the robot patrolled its...Read full article
