U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is testing robotic systems that use visual sensing inspired by insects to navigate through their surroundings. One of the prototype systems being tested uses wide-field vision and high-update rate that will provide researchers with a method to improve 3-D mapping and motion estimations.
These projects will allow the engineers to understand better how soldiers could use the information provided by these robots while working to secure a building from a distance. Researchers from ARL are partnering with researchers from numerous universities across the country.
