Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corp.

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T024
Budget: 10/31/08 - 04/30/10

The iRobot team proposes to develop a deployable pedestrian detection module that will analyze a monocular video stream and identify all instances of visible pedestrians. To address the problem of pedestrian detection, we will employ data-driven approaches that help recognize specific appearance and motion patterns generated by moving humans. We...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-210
Budget: 10/29/08 - 10/29/09

For the Stingray Project, iRobot Corporation and Chatten Associates will develop techniques for teleoperation of small, high-speed UGVs. Currently deployed small UGVs are limited in the missions that they can perform, due to their slow speed and the limited situational awareness that they provide to their operators. We will address these limit...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD06-UM5
Budget: 09/19/08 - 09/19/10

During Phase I we were able to build a proof-of-concept robot system to validate and demonstrate our approach and underlying technology to design a robot system capable of natural human-robot interactions. Building upon these foundations, we have a solid technical foundation to meet our Phase II goal of developing a robust robot system capable ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: MIT Csail

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-T013
Budget: 09/16/08 - 09/16/09

The NOSTRA system monitors battery health by comparing observed voltage, current, and temperature data to models of both known healthy and known unhealthy battery packs. In Phase I of the NOSTRA program, we demonstrated that this model-based approach can generate accurate estimates of battery age. During Phase II, we will use this approach to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-032
Budget: 08/28/08 - 08/27/10

The goal of MAGMA Phase II is to develop and demonstrate significant capabilities in UGV-UAV collaboration and sentry operations to support dangerous urban infantry missions, such as building clearing. To accomplish this goal effectively, the iRobot team will rely on established architectures and message sets developed under the Overseer and Col...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB062-009
Budget: 07/24/08 - 09/30/10

The Tactical Teams project goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a framework and relevant technologies to support robot and human teams in the collaborative performance of specialized tactical maneuvers. The Tactical Teams framework will facilitate human/robot teaming through the coordination of task roles; the use of natural communication m...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-052
Budget: 12/10/07 - 12/10/09

The asymmetric warfare common today requires engagement of small groups and even solitary combatants. Currently, each unmanned system used for surveillance requires a single operator, and, collaboration between operators must be moderated in a complicated fashion. This configuration is not an effective usage of manpower and hinders the effici...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-032
Budget: 11/13/07 - 05/13/08

To conduct a target engagement, a team of autonomous unmanned air and ground vehicles will have to execute tasks of target pursuit and target tracking. The iRobot, CMU, and AeroVironment team is actively developing mission planning and collaborative teaming algorithms for a UAV-UGV team. For this project, we propose to expand the current team to...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-210
Budget: 10/30/07 - 04/30/08

iRobot Corporation and Chatten Associates propose to jointly develop the Stingray teleoperated control system for driving the iRobot Warrior UGV at high speeds. The Stingray Project will integrate Chatten s HARV (Head-Aimed Remote Viewer) immersive telepresence system with proprioceptive behaviors on iRobot s dynamically-reconfigurable Warrior ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-215
Budget: 09/19/07 - 09/19/09

For the Daredevil Project, iRobot Corporation proposes to integrate the output of inexpensive, low-power, UWB radar sensors with higher-resolution range imaging devices to provide sensing for small UGVs. In Phase I, we achieved our key objectives to develop sensor configurations and processing algorithms to enable the system to reliably detect ...
