Overview
NREC developed a plug-and-play camera and range finder module that gives range information and assists operators of EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) robots during manipulation. NREC’s 3D visualization module adds range information to the video feed from the robot. The distance to the target is overlaid on the video image and updated in real time. The display also includes instructions for controlling the robot’s manipulator joints. The 3D visualization module replaces the robot’s existing end effector camera. It can easily be added to currently fielded robots without major hardware and software upgrades.
