Roboteam Unveils Groundbreaking UGV Technology at AUSA

Top Layer technology will change how U.S. Armed Forces use unmanned robotics

GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roboteam, a leading global provider of tactical ground robotic systems, is showcasing its new real-time 3D-mapping and autonomous navigation technology - "Top Layer" - at the 2016 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C., October 3-5.

Roboteam designs, develops, produces and delivers high performance tactical ground robots and controllers that are used within defense, law enforcement and public safety missions. The new technology allows a single-operator to control multiple robotic vehicles while simultaneously and remotely conducting intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The Top Layer technology enables:

Semi-Autonomous Convoys Through Follow Me
Mesh Communication/Networking
Real-Time 3D, 360 Degree Day and Night Mapping Through Explore Function
Multiple Sensors for Urban and Subterranean Navigation
Convoy Go Home Retrieval Function
"Roboteams Top Layer technology will provide U.S. defense agencies with advanced situational awareness while in the field and in unfamiliar environments," said Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam. "Operators can now use robotics as semi-autonomous convoys for missions that could otherwise put soldiers into harms way."

Roboteam will demonstrate the Follow Me functionality of the Top Layer technology, during AUSA at booth #1446, with their man-portable, all-terrain, stair-climbing Micro Tactical Ground Robot (MTGR), equipped with multiple sensors for optimal navigation and real-time information. In addition, Roboteam will show off their Individual Robotic Intelligence System (IRIS), a rugged, three-pound throwable platform that provides standoff detection and stealth reconnaissance with day and night video/audio coverage.

For an interview with a Roboteam representative or to get a one-on-one demonstration of their cutting edge technology and innovation at AUSA, or to schedule a meeting at their Gaithersburg, MD office, please reach out to the press contact listed with this release.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
