Autonomous Technology to be Presented at the SmartAmerica Challenge Summit

- Applied Robotics for Installations and Base Operations (ARIBO) will be

highlighted at the SmartAmerica Challenge Summit, June 11, at the Walter E.
Washington Convention Center.

- The summit is a culmination of a challenge aimed at uniting more than 100
organizations who dared to demonstrate the potential benefits of
cyber-physical systems (CPS) technology, programs and test beds to improve
safety, sustainability, efficiency, mobility and overall quality of life.

- Team ARIBO is a model of public-private partnership and cross-sector
collaboration. ARIBO partners include: The U.S. Army Tank Automotive
Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC), Stanford University,
Induct Technologies, Unicor (through Induct), University of Texas Arlington
Research Institute (UTARI), West Point, Fort Bragg & Womack Army Medical
Center, and Comet Consulting.
