    Army Robot Detects and Shares Environmental Changes, Potential Danger, with Human Teammate in Real Time

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    The robotic component of a human-robot team designed by the U.S. Army is capable of detecting physical changes in 3D and sharing the information it collects with a human in real time. Augmented reality enables the delivery of information, allowing the human recipient to assess the information and promptly determine action steps.

    A team of scientists from the U.S. Army demonstrated the relationship in a structured real-world environment by pairing a small, autonomous, lidar-equipped mobile ground robot with a human teammate outfitted with AR glasses. As the robot patrolled its surroundings, it compared, in real time, its current and previous readings to detect changes. Any changes or perceived abnormalities are instantly displayed in…
