“Autonomous Vehicles for Air, Land, and Sea”: The LISC is equipping autonomous robots with an intelligence to go where man or woman may not be able to go—dangerous environments, complex situations under water or in the air. These robots can be quick with decision making and physical speed. And they can collaborate with each other. Read the full story here!
