Abstract:

Small autonomous vehicles can carry only a limited assortment of sensing and computational devices. One method of increasing these vehicles capabilities is to access offboard, networked resources. A useful resource for robotic systems would be a threedimensional model of the environment, continually updated and made available via netcentric applications. Researchers at Lincoln Laboratory are exploring the use of such a world model by autonomous vehicles to improve the detection of objects of interest.
