ROBOT / UAV / AI

Reconnaissance and surveillance

In order to develop your robotic applications for reconnaissance and surveillance purpose, 4DV-SIM propose complex and unknown environments (indoor and outdoor), to integrate several actors : vehicles, pedestrians, etc.

The array of features and end uses is large. You can test obstacle avoidance strategies, obstruction passing (negative or positive), sensor fusion, 2D/3D SLAM, data analysis and processing from multiple sources.

The PEDESTRIAN add-on allows for an easy integration of fully controllable pedestrian

The UAV add-on let you test your drones (UAV) equipped with sensors and challenge then with wind disturbances.

INSPECTION / MANIPULATION / MINE CLEARING

Tactical response robot

Because they are complex systems, the tactical response robots brings important technical added value. They work in various and complex contexts (stair case, slippery floors…), either for vehicle inspection, objects manipulation, mine clearing, etc.

4DV-SIM propose a complete work flow for the development of these robots systems equipped with actuators (arm, gripper) and propulsion system (track, wheel).

The available sensor library in 4DV-EDITOR allow the development teams to equip the virtual platform on par with the real platform. The virtual twin can be controlled with a high level of representativeness, able to detect the environment and the disturbances.

HANDLING / HEAVY LOAD CARRYING / TROOPS FOLLOWING

Mule robot / Evacuation

The mule robots are used as logistic assets to convey equipment or evacuate wounded soldiers. They are designed to operated in any environment, adapting themselves to define navigable and traversable areas.

With larger sizes than reconnaissance and intervention robots, the implementation of this driver-less robots needs a high level of maturity in terms of perception and control to ensure the safety of the people around it.

4DV-SIM gives the opportunity to research laboratories and industrial partners to work in a safe environment.

Test and approve your systems for perception, localization, behaviour, ground contact management and tipping before the tuning phase with the real robot. This last step is shortened, optimized and the final real test becomes safer.

ON-ROAD AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

Platooning / Vehicle convoy

Using mobile robot technology to optimize the armed forces logistics may prove useful by doing autonomous or semi-autonomous convoys.

However, many scenarios considering the types of vehicles and the geometry of the convoy need to be considered to develop systems managing vehicle insertion, extraction, etc.

In this context, using precisely geo-referenced copies of real environments is an advantage for the staff to set up a specific work-flow using tests in virtual and real environment.

These tests ensure an efficient approach to approve, with simulation, the sensor set-up and algorithms (perception and control) that will drive the vehicles.
