Primordial, Evolution Robotics, and Dr. Clark Olson from the University of Washington, Bothell developed a vision-based autonomous navigation system for soldiers on a global positioning system (GPS)-denied battlefield. The prototype leveraged visual odometry techniques based on the approach used by the Mars rovers to perform localization using a single low-cost camera. The ultimate goal is to replace unreliable dead reckoning modules (DRMs) used by soldiers for positioning in caves, urban canyons, and indoors.
