Roboteam Announces Artificial Intelligence Control Unit (AI-CU) Software for Unmanned Systems

Advanced Software to Provide Autonomous and Artificial Intelligence Capabilities for the Warfighter

GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roboteam, Inc., the leading global provider of tactical ground robotic systems and controllers for defense, law enforcement and public safety missions, today announced their intuitive Artificial Intelligence Control Unit (AI-CU pronounced "IQ") software. The software will provide intuitive control and operation of unmanned systems and payloads to include unique features such as autonomous navigation, facial recognition and other artificial intelligence-enabled capabilities for operators of unmanned systems.


"The AI-CU will revolutionize the way soldiers are able to execute their mission objectives safely and successfully," said Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam, Inc. "This software provides users with the next generation of unmanned software control by enhancing the level of situational awareness and intuitive operation. The AI-CU provides military quality speech and facial recognition technology that will forever change the way soldiers leverage robotics on the battlefield."

Capable of acting as a universal control unit, the AI-CU allows operators to control numerous platforms and payloads simultaneously, based on MOCU compliant, open source software. Through the use of AI, an operator can control semi-autonomous platforms with voice commands while receiving real-time facial recognition data in the field. AI-CU leverages universal sensors that can be integrated with GPS location, pre-defined payload configurations, and mission objectives for autonomous and intuitive operation.

The use of machine learning will allow platforms to recognize individual operators and learn how each user utilizes system features and performance. During operation, control and usability features automatically adjust, allowing AI-CU to provide a tailored interaction with the platform to better meet an operator's needs. AI-CU is easily modified to meet any mission objective, whether it is controlling UGVs or UAVs, and leverages an obstacle alert system for superior situational awareness.

In addition to operability, the software provides a supreme level of security for users in the battlefield. Sensitive material stored on the AI-CU or robotic platform can be remotely deleted in situations where a platform may have been compromised.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
