|Autonomous Agricultural Spraying
We are developing ground-based vehicles for pesticide application.
NREC designed and developed the Crusher vehicle to support the UPI program's rigorous field experimentation schedule.
This project adresses the problems of scene interpretation and path planning for mobile robot navigation in natural environment.
|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.
NREC designed, developed and tested a fully autonomous system capable of following pre-taught paths while detecting and avoiding obstacles.
