The U.S. Army's Medical Research and Materiel Command has selected Charles River Analytics to integrate sensing and autonomous tools into a robotic system designed to evacuate casualties from a combat zone.

Charles River said Wednesday it developed a toolkit that employs localization, path planning, world modeling and 3D perception approaches to update the Body-Aware Robotic Applique for Collaborative Evacuation platform.

BRACE is built to navigate and avoid obstacles on the battlefield while exchanging data with manned and unmanned platforms in constrained-bandwidth environments.

Stan German, senior scientist at Charles River and principal investigator for the BRACE program, said the modular hardware/software system supports plug-and-play integration with future and existing unmanned platforms.

The BRACE toolkit is based on the firm's prior Anthropometry and Pose Observation using Low-Dimensional Latent Optimization technology, which uses 3D imaging to identify casualties that need to be removed from an area.
