Robo Teammates in their Context

A kind of digital twin and context interaction with sensors and updates. 

U.S. Army Robo-Teammate Can Detect, Share 3D Changes in Real Time

Researchers at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command's Army Research Laboratory (ARL) have shown that robots equipped with LiDAR can detect physical changes in a three-dimensional, real-world environment, and share that information with a person in real time via augmented reality eyewear. The human observer then can evaluate the information and determine how to respond. Said ARL's Christopher Reardon, "This could let robots inform their soldier teammates of changes in the environment that might be overlooked by or not perceptible to the soldier, giving them increased situational awareness and offset from potential adversaries.” Robots equipped with LiDAR, Reardon said, “could detect anything from camouflaged enemy soldiers to IEDs.” ...
