Army researchers mull artificial intelligence (AI) to enable soldiers to control unmanned combat vehicles

March 25, 2020
At the speed of the most advanced computer processing, various artificial intelligence systems can organize and share information simultaneously.

WASHINGTON – The u.s. Army Research Laboratory is exploring new applications of artificial intelligence (AI) to enable forward operating robotic land vehicles to acquire targets, make decisions, surveil combat zones, and fire weapons when directed by a human.

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

25 March 2020 -- The concept is aligned with research into new generations of AI for unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) not only to gather and organize information for human decision makers but also advance human-machine networking between humans and machines.

Drawing on advanced algorithms, computer technology can organize, and disseminate otherwise dis-aggregated pools of data in seconds -- or even milliseconds.

AI-empowered sensors can bounce incoming images, video or data off a seemingly limitless existing database to assess comparisons, differences and perform near real-time analytics for unmanned combat vehicles.
