MicroStrain inertial sensors guide unmanned ground vehicles

Unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) decouple human operators from the environment they are accessing. This ability makes unmanned platforms an attractive technology for hazardous and difficult-to-access settings. The appeal and effectiveness of these systems prompted Congress to mandate that 1/3 of all US military vehicles be unmanned by 2015. Yet, dependability and cost concern

Fixed-Wing Wireless Health Monitoring

Why monitor fixed-wing health?
