Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD13-HS3
Budget: 09/18/15 - 01/18/18

This topic addresses the problem of robustly commanding and controlling unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex, unstructured environments. Current approaches to this task rely on dense scene reconstruction from a variety of sensor data such as LIDAR and video imagery. Scene representations are then relayed to a remote human operator who p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Transportation
Topic: 13.2-FH2
Budget: 05/21/15 - 07/21/17

Recent research suggests there are opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. For example, the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles among 16 year old drivers is some ten times higher than it is among those between the ages of 45 and 55. However, hazard-related ...

NONE

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-073
Budget: 02/13/14 - 02/16/15

Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). Therefore, there exists a significant need to introduce vehicle st...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T018
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the difficulty of the navigation problem increases d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-073
Budget: 09/26/12 - 03/25/13

Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). While many advances have been made in the commercial passenger ve...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T033
Budget: 09/12/11 - 04/12/12

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-203
Budget: 04/02/10 - 10/02/10

Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) will play an important role in the nation’s next-generation ground force. As these systems become increasingly autonomous there is increasing need for precise awareness of their absolute position and velocity. Autonomous navigation systems rely on such data to be effective. Unfortunately, today’s position and velo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-196
Budget: 02/12/09 - 02/12/11

Situational Awareness (SA) systems leveraging Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have become a mainstay for vehicles, troops, and even unmanned systems (such as unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs)). Unfortunately, in urban, semi-urban or canopied terrain GPS signals can be difficult or impossible to receive ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-210
Budget: 01/28/09 - 01/28/10

Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) will play an important role in the nation s next-generation ground forces. Control of UGVs is accomplished remotely, through a command system that allows an operator(s) to receive sensor data from the UGV and send motion commands to the vehicle. Remote control (i.e. teleoperation) of a UGV is a physically and cogn...
