Abstract

The U.S. Army Human Engineering Laboratory, with assistance from the National Bureau of Standards, Robot System Division, is developing a heavy-lift pallet handling robotic system designated as the Field Material-Handling Robot (FMR). The initial demonstration of the FMR will be the sensor-driven autonomous acquisition and high speed manipulation of pallets of artillery ammunition. This paper describes the FMR research and development project with emphasis on the robot control architecture and the sensor-driven autonomous operational capabilities.
