U.S. Army orders robotic assistant

Stratom announced Monday the U.S. Army has awarded the company a contract to develop a personnel safety system for Robotic Combat Vehicle-Light (RCV-L).

As noted by the company, the future robotic system will provide 360-degree sensor coverage and a computer system that leverages machine learning to intelligently identify objects close to the vehicle.

The system, known as the Perimeter Safety for Autonomous Vehicles (P-SAV), will include newly developed ROS2-based software to communicate the appropriate information to the RCV’s operator and its computer system to execute appropriate behaviors.
