1 March, 2018
"The software provides military quality speech and facial recognition technology that will change the way soldiers leverage robotics on the battlefield"
Roboteam announced an Artificial Intelligence Control Unit (AI-CU) software for intuitive control and operation of unmanned systems and payloads. The AI-CU software includes autonomous navigation, facial recognition and other artificial intelligence-enabled capabilities for operators of unmanned systems. “This will revolutionize the way soldiers are able to execute their mission objectives,” said Shahar Abuhazira, CEO of Roboteam. “The software enhances the level of situational awareness and intuitive operation. It provides military quality speech and facial recognition technology that will forever change the way soldiers leverage robotics on the battlefield.”
Capable of acting as a universal control unit, the AI-CU allows operators to control numerous platforms and payloads simultaneously, based on MOCU compliant, open source software. Through 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 use of machine learning will allow platforms to recognize individual operators and learn how each user utilizes system features and performance. During operation, control and usability features automatically adjust, allowing AI-CU to provide a tailored interaction with the platform to better meet an operator’s needs.
The company was established in 2009 and is focused on the development and production of tactical ground robots. I operates from three headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel, Gaithersburg, Maryland and Windber, Pennsylvania. Among its customers: IDF, US Marines, US Army and the US Navy.
