Robotics and Automation Improve Output, Efficiency

Cybernet began its work in the development of robotics technology In the early 1990s. The technology applied ranges in fields from computer gaming to augmented reality training to human intention-cued, automated multi-camera surveillance.

Cybernet was an early developer of user interfaces to robotic and computerized devices based on detection of motion in video and inertial tracker data streams, recognition of intentional human motion in these motion streams, and conversion of the human intention into machine control or computer control commands. This technology was popularized in computer gaming by Microsoft through its Kinect product.
To integrate complex automation systems, Cybernet works with a number of Detroit-based nontraditional robotics applications and manufacturing companies, allowing us to bring mature automotive-derived experience to our military customers for tactical and field applications. Leveraging material handling expertise available from this mature manufacturing sector, we use our military expertise to modify the designs of various COTS material handling systems to support our soldiers’ needs in the field.

Unique Robotic Platforms and User Interfaces

Cybernet has built several small robotic platform systems over the years and has deep experience developing human-robot interfaces and operator stations dating back to the earliest DoD development efforts in this area. The core protocol gateway, terrain, map, and blue-force tracking technology developed for robotics is also used for other military and computer game applications. Cybernet staff are also active participants in the JAUS Working Group.

Navigation, Rendezvous & Docking

The Cybernet team’s experience with 3D optical radar systems traces back to the first ERIM 3D optical radars that were deliverable to the Autonomous Land Vehicle program, and later to the U.S. Postal Service. Our company also has a strong practice in vehicle embedded computer vision applications (ATR, inspection, and navigation/docking) and miniature pointing and location solutions (video trackers and gesture recognition systems, MEMs INS-augmented GPS, parachute descent tracking systems, and GPS/compass combinations).
