α-WaLTR: New DARPA Project to Develop Next-Generation UGV
Prof. Lee and her team starts a new DARPA OFFSET Sprint 5 project (PI: Kiju Lee, 04/03/20 – 04/02/21) to develop an adaptive Wheel-and-Leg Transformable Robot (α-WaLTR) for versatile locomotion in urban military environments. The 9-month base period will focus on technical development and experimental evaluation of the new hardware platform; and the next 3-month optional period will focus on system-level integration with the existing platform technologies developed by Swarm Systems Integrators.
