Unmanned Security Robots

This project developed autonomous ATVs to secure borders and facility perimeters. The goal of these scouts was to automatically patrol a desired path, detect and avoid obstacles, and provide operators with live video and audio feeds. They aimed assist their human counterparts by providing eyes and ears in dangerous locations. Streaming audio and video enabled an operator to evaluate threats and suspicious activities from the safety of a command-and-control center. Vehicles could automatically detect and avoid obstacles as they navigated assigned patrol areas, relieving operators from constant vehicle monitoring. Many scouts could operate concurrently, enabling a security officer to cover an area much larger than could be handled alone.
