Team Description*

Team AvantGuardium was formed by US and Israeli defense technology groups, who have been on the forefront in the development and fielding of operational Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) in real world applications. The AvantGuardium group led by EFW in Fort Worth, includes Elbit Systems Electro-Optics (ELOP), Elbit Systems Land and C4, The Elbit Systems and Israel Aerospace Industry JV for Unmanned Ground Systems and the Ben-Gurion University, in Israel. The group members bring highly experienced engineers and scientists in the areas of robotics, control, electro-optics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, real-time software, system engineering and Global Information Systems (GIS). Meeting the behavioral requirements of autonomous vehicles in the urban environment, as it is envisioned by DARPA, requires an enormous leap in the capabilities of the autonomous vehicle. The team's vehicle “RONIN” is based on a 2007 Jeep Wrangler which has been converted to a fully autonomous UGV. The AvantGuardium RONIN has been created to integrate and demonstrate the latest in technology providing a significant step forward towards the leap in technology necessary to meet the DARPA vision.
