We are developing robotic systems for automated 3D mine mapping.
Autonomous Ground Vehicle Design
Pursuing high speed navigation of unrehearsed terrain in pursuit of the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge
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.
NREC designed and developed the Crusher vehicle to support the UPI program's rigorous field experimentation schedule.
Footstep Planning for Biped Robots
Navigation strategies for bipeds through complex environments, planning for the full capabilities of the biped.
The NREC-led team designed, developed and field tested and successfully demonstrated a Gladiator robotic system with high mobility and remote combat capabilities.
Inter-Process Communication Package (IPC)
We are developing a high-level support package for connecting and sending data among processes using TCP / IP sockets.
Learning Robots (LAGR)
DARPA needed to supply a standard, mobile robot platform to research teams performing on the Learning Applied to Ground Robots (LAGR) program.
Legless Locomotion
A novel locomotion technique for legged robots when their legs don't touch the ground!
