Autonomous Ground Vehicles and Aircraft Demonstrate New Collaborative Capabilities for Keeping Warfighters Safe
Carnegie Mellon University and Sikorsky Aircraft researchers have used an autonomous helicopter and an autonomous ground vehicle to demonstrate for the U.S. Army that ground and air robots are capable of performing complex, cooperative missions. “We were able to demonstrate a new technological capability that combines the strengths of air and ground vehicles,” said Jeremy Searock, technical project manager at the National Robotics Engineering Center. “The helicopter provides long-range capability and access to remote areas, while the ground vehicle has long endurance and high-precision sensing.”
