Current Projects
 
Autonomous Agricultural Spraying
We are developing ground-based vehicles for pesticide application.
Autonomous Coordinated Motion and Mobility (ACMM)
The ACMM (Autonomous Coordinated Motion and Mobility) project integrates and develops controls for more efficient supervised teleoperation of mobile manipulators.
Autonomous Navigation System (ANS)
The NREC is leading the development of perception and path planning within the Autonomous Navigation System program for the Future Combat System.
Land Mine Detection and Neutralization
PerceptOR (NRECPerceptOR)
NREC designed, developed and tested an innovative autonomous perception and navigation system for the DARPA PerceptOR program.
Sweep Monitoring (SMS)
NREC developed the Sweep Monitoring System (SMS) for training soldiers and demining personnel to use hand-held land mine detectors.
Transitional Unmanned Ground Vehicle (TUGV)
Cross Country Navigation
Underground Mining Operator Assist
Automating the functions of a continuous mining machine and roof bolting units.
VISTA
On the Vista project we are developing devices that image upto a full 360 degrees in azimuth. The imagery we are getting is ideal for estimation of egomotion (localization) as well as for extracting shape from a sequence of images.
