Team Scorpion was formed to bring together the diverse capabilities and experiences required to provide a unique DARPA Urban Challenge solution. Superior performance at the Urban Challenge demands more from the vehicles, designers and more safety, functions, vision, responsiveness, and maneuverability. Our technical approach to meet these demands uses the proven robotic Scorpion vehicle platform. Scorpion integrates a variety of sensors and algorithms, each with proven track records, and presents a highly robust and responsive system.
Team Scorpion, managed by Raytheon, includes key industry leaders as partners: Preferred Chassis Fabrication specializing in the design and manufacturing of high‑performance vehicles and producer of the Scorpion vehicle. Tucson Embedded Systems specializing in safety critical real-time systems development. iRobot, an industry leader in the innovation and fielding of military robots and robotic vehicles and The University of Arizona specializing in traffic modeling and simulations.
