Roboteam announces AI-CU software
On 1 March Roboteam announced the launch of its Artificial Intelligence Control Unit (AI-CU) software to provide autonomous and artificial intelligence capabilities to the warfighters.
The AI-CU software will provide intuitive control and operation of unmanned systems and payloads according to the company. This will include unique features such as autonomous navigation, facial recognition and other artificial intelligence-enabled capabilities for operators of unmanned systems.
The AI-CU allows operators to control numerous platforms and payloads simultaneously, based on multi-robot operator control unit (MOCU) compliant, open source software. Roboteam said that with the use of AI, an operator can control semi-autonomous platforms with voice commands while receiving real-time facial recognition data in the field.
The 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 recognise individual operators and learn how each user utilises system features and performance.
Its control and usability features automatically adjust during operations, allowing the AI-CU to provide a customised interaction with the platform to better meet an operator’s needs. The AI-CU can be easily modified to meet any mission objective, whether it is controlling UGVs or UAVs. It leverages an obstacle alert system for superior situational awareness.
The software is also designed to provide a high levels 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.
Shahar Abuhazira, CEO, Roboteam, said: ‘The AI-CU will revolutionise the way soldiers are able to execute their mission objectives safely and successfully. 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.’
