2016 Intuitive Robotic Operator Control of Autonomous Behaviors (IROC-A) Challenge

The Marine Corps Warfighter Lab (MCWL) is pursuing the Intuitive Robotic Operator Control (IROC) initiative in order to reduce the cognitive burden on operators when using a robotic platform to perform short range search and reconnaissance missions. The robot will assist the Marine in performing reconnaissance tasks within buildings and outside areas. The more autonomous the robot can perform the search and recon mission capabilities, the more desirable to the Marine Corps.
