Current Projects [Past Projects]
 
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.
LNG Pipe Vision (LPV)
A pipe-crawling robot visually inspects pipes in liquid natural gas (LNG) plants for corrosion.
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.
PerceptOR (NRECPerceptOR)
NREC designed, developed and tested an innovative autonomous perception and navigation system for the DARPA PerceptOR program.
VANE
We are exploring a mix of physics-based and data driven high fidelity sensor modeling techniques. The goal is to develop a system that can provide much more realistic UGV simulation than current techniques. Such simulation will play a crucial role in speeding up the development cycle, and in validating platforms. Sponsored by the US ACE ERDC.
