Black Diamond Advanced Technology has been selected by Carnegie Robotics, LLC to develop an Operator Control Unit (OCU) for ground robotic command and control applications.
Leveraging existing technology from its ultra-rugged, combat-proven Modular Tactical System product family, Black Diamond Advanced Technology will design, develop and prototype a chest-mounted / handheld controller according to Carnegie Robotics specifications for next-generation autonomous mine detection and similar unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) applications.
"The OCU will allow Carnegie Robotics end-customers' the ability to safely and accurately manage their UGVs with an intuitive human-machine interface (HMI) device that takes advantage of BDATech's legacy of cutting-edge human factors experience as a leading defense electronics OEM," says Norman Lange, director of product development at Black Diamond Advanced Technology. Engineering design services and material deliveries will be performed from now into calendar year 2016.
