Johns Hopkins APL Supports Army Project on Self-Righting Autonomous EOD Robot

TYSONS CORNER, VA, November 20, 2018 — Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has collaborated with U.S. Army researchers to build software that will serve to provide a self-righting capability to the future Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
