Research Institution

Soar Technology, Inc. and Northrop Grumman propose AWARE – Perception, a self-aware architecture for improving underwater perception through motion. An unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) equipped with AWARE-Perception learns from experience to accurately perceive its surroundings through judicious use of perception-oriented behavior. Leveraging prior episodic memory and behavioral adaptation development, AWARE-Perception will add new perception aware behaviors, a unified perceptual/robot state representation to enable continuous behavioral adaptation, and methods for knowledge transfer between platforms. The result is software that improves underwater perception of UUV’s through motion.
