AUVSI 2010

In August, Ocular Robotics exhibited at the world's premiere unmanned systems exhibition, AUVSI 2010, in Denver, Colorado. Following up on the success of Ocular's initial attendance at the AUVSI (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International) exhibition in Washington DC in 2009 where the RobotEye technology was introduced, the Ocular stand again attracted significant interest from attendees representing all of the forms of unmanned systems. The potential of the RobotEye technology for a broad range of unmanned systems applications was recognised in the Ones to Watch section of the AUVSI 2010 magazine published during the show.

At the 2010 show Ocular exhibited an inertially slaved RobotEye RE01 unit which provided video feedback to a head mounted display (HMD) from Rockwell Collins. This video shows the demonstration displayed at the stand in Denver it makes clear the complete freedom of the operator to move their field of vision without any lag as the RobotEye reliably tracks the movements of the operators head regardless of the speed or change in direction.

Additionally Ocular's inertial sensing partner InterSense Inc. demonstrated on their stand at AUVSI 2010 a proof of concept stabilised RobotEye using their newly released next generation IMU the NavChip. Video of the proof of concept demonstration shows impressive stabilization bandwidth even at this early stage of development. Ocular and InterSense continue to work together to realise the high performance stabilization capabilities of the combined technologies as the RobotEye NC.
