  • Army researchers link ground robots for collaborative autonomy

    October 26, 2012

    Four U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) researchers have developed an algorithm that will make it easier for the Department of Defense to maintain wirelessly networked Army PackBots and other military assets using radio communications. The team recently demonstrated they could map the region of good connectivity to a radio base station using received signal...

  • New ARL thermoelectric technology, approaches to reclaim wasted energy

    October 12, 2012

    U.S. Army researchers are scavenging heat that pours from major weapon system engines or tailpipes and turning it into electrical power, and if their experiments prove applicable across multiple military platforms, ground and air vehicles could get built smaller, weigh less and potentially save billions in fuel costs. In one of its latest research projects,...
