Navy Partners with Evolution Robotics
Evolution Robotics Inc. has won a federal contract from the U.S. Navy's Office of Naval Research valued at nearly $1 million for research on scaling visual recognition for maritime domain awareness. In the past, the company has collaborated with the military on projects ranging from RPG detection to UAV autonomous navigation. The Navy’s most recent selection of Evolution Robotics is based on the company’s expertise in low-power embedded systems for visual recognition. Evolution will assist the Navy in developing systems that can be deployed in the field to recognize boats, aircraft and road vehicles, regardless of weather conditions, lighting, scale and viewpoint.
