Carnegie Mellon, Sikorsky team up for unmanned Blackhawk flight
Carnegie Mellon University and Sikorsky Aircraft researchers have used an autonomous helicopter and an autonomous ground vehicle to demonstrate for the U.S. Army that ground and air robots can perform complex, cooperative missions.
A Black Hawk helicopter equipped for autonomous operation by Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Co., delivered a Land Tamer autonomous unmanned ground vehicle from CMU's National Robotics Engineering Center to a remote site, where the vehicle performed environmental monitoring for potential contamination.
Such a robotic mission could prevent warfighters' exposure to hazardous conditions, such as chemically or radiologically contaminated areas.
