The RCTA is a consortium of research organizations sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Lab (ARL) to conduct basic and applied research in unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) technology. The consortium is led by General Dynamics Robot Systems; other participants include Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pennsylvania, University of California Berkeley, Florida State University, University of Central Florida, Caltech, Boston Dynamics, Qinetiq North America, Robotic Research LLC, and JPL. At the top level, work in the program is organized around four themes (1) Perception, (2) Intelligence, (3) Human Robot Interaction, and (4) Dexterous Manipulation and Unique Mobility (DMUM). JPL participates in the Perception and DMUM areas with research on 3-D perception, terrain classification, object classification, dynamic scene understanding, team localization, grasp planning and sensor fusion for grasping, dexterous end effectors, and novel actuators.
