Chapter News

Thanks to a five-year, $27 million government grant from a United States Army Research Laboratory program that seeks to advance robotic technology, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania will develop a team of autonomous, specialized and resilient robots for the United States military.

One of the researchers for this project, Electrical and Systems Engineering Chair George Pappas, says that this research is unique because its focus will be on specialized teams of robots, instead of individual robots.

These robots will also be able to learn from one another in unknown environments.

During ASIS 2017, Sharp Electronics' Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV) was named “New Product of the Year for Outdoor Perimeter Protection” by Security Today magazine, and the A-UGV also received the “Security Solutions Award for Security Monitoring” by Security Sales & Integration.

These industry honors come a year after the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV officially launched during ASIS International 2016.

Being that personnel are still responsible for manually loading and unloading cargo from an air vehicle for cargo missions today, the U.S. Navy has tasked RE2 Robotics with developing an Autonomous Robotic Cargo Handling (ARCH) system.

This system will be demonstrated in concurrence with the Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System (AACUS) equipped UH-1H Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA), which will provide the ability to deliver supplies autonomously.

This Week in the Unmanned Systems and Robotics World.

UAVOS Inc. has developed an unmanned aerial complex based on Pipistrel’s Sinus light aircraft.

UAVOS converted three Pipistrel Sinus aircraft into UAVs, and modified the wings of the original aircraft for the installation of hangers for payload. In addition to that, the wiring was changed, and the company integrated its UAVOS automatic control system into the aircraft.
