Roboteam, a provider of tactical ground robotic systems and controllers, has announced the launch of a new Artificial Intelligence Control Unit (AI-CU) software. The software will provide intuitive control and operation of unmanned systems and payloads, including 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 unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and leverages an obstacle alert system for enhanced situational awareness.
In addition to operability, the software provides a high 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.
