From the EE Times:
The proliferation of unmanned vehicle technologies used by the U.S. military has prompted an Army command to fund development of a toolkit that could be used for its entire fleet of unmanned ground vehicles.
The U.S. Army's Transportation Command (Warren, Mich.) will fund a six-month research project to develop a low-cost "robot infrastructure toolkit" that can be used for a wide range of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).
RE2 Inc., a Carnegie Mellon University spin-off (Pittsburgh), said Tuesday (Jan. 3) it will develop a toolkit focusing on specialized communication components and robotic manipulators with a common control interface
For a while Evo was looking at getting the ERSP selected as a standard robotics toolkit—by someone other than the U.S. Army.Posted by jjwiseman at January 04, 2006 05:24 PM
