This edition features a discussion about two seemingly unrelated U.S. Army organizations are gathering robotics experts and companies from across the country in search of innovative robotic solutions to save Soldier's lives. Fort Hood's III Corps and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) - are hosting a first-ever "Robotics Rodeo" this week at Fort Hood to encourage development of autonomous systems in support of our nation's war fighters. At 1400ET, Sept. 9, Lt. Col. Barry "Chip" Daniels, robotics project officer at III Corps, Fort Hood, Texas, and Dr. Jim Overholt, director of the Joint Center for Robotics at TARDEC, discuss the technologies witnessed at the Rodeo that will potentially benefit the Army's robotics programs.
