Tartan Rescue designed an effector combining off-the-shelf and NREC components to meet DARPA Robotics Challenge requirements.




Manipulating an end effector to follow a coverage path while maintaining a precise distance
from the surface in order to optimize coating removal. Approved for public release:
Case Number: 88ABW-2012-3020.




Coordinating two robotic arms.





Manipulator camera/range finder and operator assistance system retrofitted onto a Talon UGV.

Manipulation

We apply our expertise in perception, autonomy, and operator assistance to make manipulators more intelligent, safer, and easier to operate. Our autonomy systems plan and execute manipulation tasks without human intervention. Perception systems for manipulators detect people and foreign objects, improving work cell safety and enabling human-robot cooperation. Coordinated mobile manipulators work in teams to accomplish tasks that are difficult for a single robot to perform. Operator assistance, perception and autonomy systems can be retrofitted to fielded manipulator-equipped UGVs.
