    Robot Dogs and Drones 3D Mapping ‘Ghost Ships’ with Laser-based Sensors

    James Laney from Ghost Robotics demonstrates Quadrupedal Unmanned Vehicles (Q-UGVs referred to as ‘Robot Dogs’ on the decommissioned ship, formerly known as USS Boone, at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division Advanced Data Acquisition Prototyping Technology Virtual Environments (ADAPT.VE) engineers and scientists are testing both Boston Dynamics and Ghost Robotics Robot Dogs to explore cutting-edge technology and enhance capabilities. These robot dogs are four-legged droids. Designed to minimize human exposure to danger, the semi-autonomous robot dog features a state-of-the art sensor package for both security, surveillance, and 3D image capture from its multiple cameras. The concept will demonstrate value of 3D scanning for battle damage assessment and repair and assess the ability for the dogs to be used in theatre to fill critical roles.
