The DARPA PerceptOR program implements a rigorous evaluative test program which fosters the development of field relevant outdoor mobile robots. Autonomous ground vehicles are deployed on diverse test courses throughout the USA and quantitatively evaluated on such factors as autonomy level, waypoint acquisition, failure rate, speed, and communications(More)
The task of teleoperating a robot over a wireless video link is known to be very difficult. Teleoperation becomes even more difficult when the robot is surrounded by dense obstacles, or speed requirements are high, or video quality is poor, or wireless links are subject to latency. Due to high quality lidar data, and improvements in computing and video(More)
Although fully autonomous robots continue to advance in ability, all points on the spectrum of cooperative interfaces between man and machine continue to have their place. We have developed a suite of operator assist technologies for a small (1 cubic meter volume) high speed robot that is intended to improve both speed and fidelity of control. These aids(More)
Quality attributes of the longissimus lumborum (LL) were compared to the attributes of the muscles semimembranosus (SM), rectus femoris (RF), biceps femoris (BF), gluteus medius (GM) and the lateral portion of the semitendinosus (ST) in the ham, the psoas major (PM) in the loin and the supraspinatus (SS), infraspinatus (IS) and triceps brachii (TB) in the(More)
Eruption of permanent incisors (dentition) is used as a proxy for age for defining meat quality in Australian sheep meat. However, this approach may not be reliable. While not presently available, an objective method could be used to determine sheep age, and thus sheep category, which would then potentially remove any inaccuracies that may occur in(More)
