ARL collaborative research enhancing Soldiers' abilities
November 05, 2010
Robots that operate by remote control or by themselves can extend a Soldier's sense of sight, sound and even smell on the battlefield. ARL scientists and engineers have teamed up with University of Pennsylvania researchers in a collaborative technology agreement looking at micro autonomous systems and technologies. This video looks at how the team is essentially outfitting commercially available technology like the quadrotor with sensors and other smart-technology to extend Soldiers' abilities to collect necessary information in challenging environments like mountains, caves or abandoned buildings.
