The Center for Autonomous Real-Time Systems (CARTS) is part of the Center for Real-Time and Intelligent Complex Computing systems (CRICCS). CARTS is exploring the integration of technologies from robotics, real-time AI, computer vision, and real-time computing for use in uncertain and real-time environments. CARTS is application domain driven and is currently focused on applying these technologies to the flexible manufacturing processes although many other applications are envisioned.
CARTS works in cooperation with industrial partners and is complemented by the University's non-profit organization, the Applied Computing Systems Institute of Massachusetts, Inc. (ASCIOM). ASCIOM aids in the quick transfer of technology from CARTS research to industrial partners.
A description of the current CARTS demo can be found here.
