Current Projects [Past Projects]
 
Autonomous Loading System (ALS)
Developing technologies to improve the productivity and reduce the cost of mass excavation.
Demeter
The Demeter project is developing a next-generation self-propelled hay harvester for agricultural operations.
Gladiator
The NREC-led team designed, developed and field tested and successfully demonstrated a Gladiator robotic system with high mobility and remote combat capabilities.
Motion Free Scanning Radar
We incorporate the current state of the art in non-mechanical scanning antenna technology with advanced millimeter-wave ranging technology to enable a small, reliable, and affordable imaging-radar sensor with no moving parts. Sensors will be demonstrated on the sponsor's equipment in typical operating scenarios and environments.
Paint Stripping
NREC designed, built and tested the centerpiece of a semi-automated paint removal system that is now in everyday use and available for commercial sale by Chariot Robotics, LLC.
UGCV PerceptOR Integrated (UPI)
The UPI (UGCV PerceptOR Integrated) program integrates and enhances the results from UGCV and PerceptOR to increase the speed and autonomy of unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex terrain. By combining the inherent mobility of Spinner with advanced perception techniques including the use of learning and prior terrain data, the UPI program stresses system design across vehicle, sensors and software so that the strengths of one component compensate for the weaknesses of another.
Underground Mining Operator Assist
Automating the functions of a continuous mining machine and roof bolting units.
