Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-219
Budget: 09/26/06 - 09/26/08

This project will produce an upgrade kit for mobile robots with robotic arms. The kit provides supervisory control and/or augmented teleoperation to deploy IED detection sensors for vehicle inspection with minimal workload burden, thus allowing the operator to concentrate on visual inspection and assessment of sensor data. The kit consists o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-219
Budget: 11/03/05 - 05/03/06

This project will develop interface methods, vision algorithms, and navigation behaviors for UGV supervisory control. Supervisory control reduces the operator workload while providing ease-of-use, predictability and responsiveness in unstructured, dynamic, and unpredictable real-world situations. In our concept, the operator interacts with the...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-082
Budget: 05/22/02 - 05/22/04

Autonomous mobility requires improved terrain perception/understanding and trafficability/mobility situation awareness. The research program will develop, test and demonstrate three complementary products addressing pressing autonomous mobility needs. The first product is enhanced stereo vision with projected lighting to detect negative obstac...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-082
Budget: 02/27/01 - 12/01/01

The proposal is to develop low-cost technologies for enhanced perception and terrain understanding for robotic ground vehicle navigation. We propose to combine structured lighting with stereo vision, using innovative image processing based on shape-from-shading and shadow processing. This will provide robust ability to detect and segment negat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A96-097
Budget: 09/30/97 - 09/30/99

The objective of the project is to develop computerized image analysts tools for use in screening and evaluating vehicle design concepts. This project will implement, test, refine and calibrate predictive models of human observer performance in visual target discrimination. Models will be developed to address three aspects of visual discrimina...
