"In this project, Hstar Technologies and its team will develop a near autonomous combat casualty extraction robotic (c2Exbot) system that: 1) supports autonomous dexterous manipulation, safe casualty lifting and near autonomous navigation control, 2) utilizes a supervisory telepresence operation mechanism, 3) provides near autonomous casualty diagnosis, injury assessment and emergency treatment, and d) provides semi-autonomous casualty monitoring and enroute care. The proposed c2Exbot system will be designed and developed by integrating the aforementioned functional components onto Hstar"s existing teleoperational combat casualty extraction robotic system called cRoNA (Combat Robotic Nurse Assistant). The c2Ebot system includes several components. Our primary innovation in c2Exbot consists of a humanoid mobile dexterous robotic manipulation system that can run in near autonomous and supervisory telepresence operation mode. We will leverage the cRoNA system technologies available at Hstar. The state of art c2Exbot will be equipped with autonomous navigation control, patient lifting and extraction functions. It will also incorporate the industry standard JAUS (Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems) protocols for integration with networked command and control systems."
