Intel‘s federal business arm has secured a contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop simulation platforms for off-road autonomous combat vehicles.

The company said Tuesday Intel Labs will collaborate with the Computer Vision Center Barcelona and the University of Texas at Austin on the creation of next-generation tools envisioned to mimic off-road environments under the Robotic Autonomy in Complex Environments with Resiliency – Simulation program.

Over the next two years, Intel and its collaborators under the two-phase RACER-Sim initiative will aim to speed up the process of designing off-road autonomous ground vehicles.

During the first phase, Intel will create new simulation platforms and map generation tools designed to imitate extreme terrain and complex environments where autonomous vehicles operate.

Intel will also implement new algorithms into the simulation platforms without relying on a physical robot in the second phase of the program.
