This SCOPE team worked in collaboration with the Army Research Lab to design and fabricate a small, man-portable, autonomous ground vehicle to support ARL's research work in advanced autonomy algorithms. The goal of the project was to develop a platform that provides the necessary functionality for research robotics at a significantly lower cost than those currently on the market. The system supports modular payloads to allow sensors to be easily swapped in and out for different research and testing needs.
