DARPA Engineers are Reinventing the Wheel with Shapeshifting Tires

DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program aims to improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor. The demonstrations featured here show progress on technologies for travelling quickly over varied terrain and improving situational awareness and ease of operation. These demonstrations feature technologies developed for DARPA by: 1) Carnegie Mellon University, National Robotics Engineering Center 2) Honeywell International 3) Pratt & Miller 4) QinetiQ 5) Raytheon BBN Technologies  …
