earth-white HUMANITARIAN AND ENVIRONMENTAL

Our decades of government-funded innovation provide a launchpad for revolutionary applications that can transform healthcare, dramatically improve safety, and evolve environmental solutions.

SOUSAPHONE & SCOUT

We study how software can enable multiple ship-launched unmanned aerial systems (UASs) to conduct semi-autonomous wildlife survey operations, and in particular, surveys of pinnipeds—the group of animals that includes walruses and seals.

We also explore how these systems can aid natural disaster relief efforts, such as by rapidly deploying to areas damaged by storms or wildfires and then transmitting information back to responders.

IMPRINT

Amongst emergency responders, firefighters are one of the biggest user groups that receive HAZWOPER training; Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require that they receive this training before they can respond to HAZMAT events. To figure out how to best train firefighters with VR tools, Charles River is teaming with Fire Lieutenant Michael Kates of the Boston Fire Department (BFD) Hazmat Response, Special Operations Command.

PIECES

Precision Information Environment for Coordinated Emergency Support (PIECES). PIECES is part of an effort to develop integrated collaborative work environments that help teams of emergency responders share and manipulate data sources. PIECES enables responders to view multiple information resources through a single access point; support manipulation, understanding, and exploitation of data sources through multi-modal displays; and share and manipulate data sources in real-time.

BERNARD

BERNARD is a non-lethal predator aversion device—an intelligent decoy that interacts with coyotes and other animals, discouraging them from pursuing the mimicked prey.

The BERNARD prototype may look just like a tortoise; but it reacts like an intelligent, fearsome animal, delivering a barrage of light, sound, and non-lethal electric shock tuned to the predator attacking it.
