Charles River Analytics to Update Autonomy Tool for Unmanned Robotic Vehicles

Charles River Analytics has secured funds from the U.S. Army to update a technology designed to direct unmanned robotic vehicles to autonomously perform a range of tasks.

The company said Thursday its Modular Applique Enabling Natural Teaming with Autonomy allows a host platform to access and share data with other MANTA-equipped vehicles and seeks to address the objective of the Army’s Combat Vehicle Robotics program.

Operators can use gesture-based or speech-based commands to manage platforms that employ the applique.

“MANTA is one of our autonomy components built on mission-focused artificial intelligence that can integrate with current and evolving platforms," said Rich Wronski, vice president of the sensing, perception and applied robotics division at Charles River Analytics.

Wronski added that company-made robotic subsystems can facilitate mission-level autonomy for "single, tele-operated platforms as well as multi-platform, collaborative robotic teams that self-organize around high-level objectives and commands."
