Rapid Integration

Darpa Urban Project

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Urban Challenge required an unmanned fully autonomous vehicle that could complete a 60-mile course in 6 hours. TES-i participated in the DARPA Urban challenge as the electronics and software integrator for Team Scorpion’s unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). Our team members included Raytheon, iRobot, Preferred Chassis Fabrication, and the University of Arizona. TES-i provided integration and coordination for the five-company team.

TES-i supported the project with extensive prototyping and experimentation in the lab and the field. We utilized our Capability Driven Architecture (CDA) as the software framework to enable us to rapidly integrate various computer resources, sensors, and actuators onto the vehicle platform. We also worked closely with the team to provide computing resources and the overall system design of the fully autonomous UGV. TES-i successfully met all of its expected milestones for this project.

In addition to our integrator role, TES-i:

  • Developed and provided the hardware/software test system which employed a script engine to enable the team to exercise and test the vehicle on blocks before field runs.
  • Developed the ground station to provide indirect vision driving and tele-operation when needed.
  • Developed the software to process the data collected from the various sensors including cameras, radar, and LIDAR for lane and obstacle detection.
  • Developed both real-time hardware and software toolkits for use by other developers.
  • Acted as our Team’s safety assessor
