Research Institution
Robotic Research, LLC, proposes to develop the Modeling And Perception for HAndheld Computers (MAPHAC) system, which consists of real-time 3D sensing, processing, and display tools for today"s computers and smart phones. MAPHAC"s long-term vision is to provide timely and accurate"video game"-like information about places humans and robots have visited. Fusion of sensor data from many warfighters combined with data from robot-mounted sensors will enable more complete visualization of the battlespace. In the MAPHAC concept, the environment is shown to the user using personal computers, laptops, or handheld computers (e.g., smart phones). Using an intuitive user interface, the warfighter can navigate through the virtual world by running, walking, or examining objects close up
