Autonomous mobile robots can carry out tasks in environments that are unsafe or otherwise unsuitable for humans. The robots' missions in such environments range from remote facilities inspections to searching for survivors in the collapsed buildings or caves. Our models were also deployed on a tracked robot during the DARPA Subterranean Challenge.
