  • US Patent No. 8326461
  • Issued: December 04, 2012
  • Status: Active
Communications

A system for providing autonomous capabilities to a radio-controlled robot, comprises two communication boxes, one connected to the robot and the other connected to an operator control unit (OCU). Each communication box comprises two radios that are interoperable with preexisting data radios in the robot; a microprocessor unit; and bidirectional attenuators. The system further comprises a software application that runs on the microprocessor unit of each communications box, to integrate data into existing transmission data stream between the robot and OCU, via preexisting data radios. The system enables the issuance of additional commands besides those issued by the OCU, using the original OCU.
