DARPA's Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program recently fielded demonstrations of projects developed by teams and companies under R&D Phase 2.

"We're looking at how to enhance survivability by buttoning up the cockpit and augmenting the crew through driver-assistance aids. For mobility, we've taken a radically different approach by avoiding armor and developing options to move quickly and be agile over all terrain," said Major Amber Walker, program manager for GXV-T in DARPA's Tactical Technology Office (TTO).

A John Hopkins biomedical engineer, Luke Osborn, may be able to give the sense of touch and pain back to amputees, thanks to an electronic "skin" called an e-dermis that provides vital sensory information that could protect the prosthetic and the wearer. A thin layer of rubber and fabric slides over the fingertips of a prosthetic hand, which is hooked up to a small computer attached to the upper arm. When the skin touches an object, an electrical signal is sent to electrodes attached to the end of the stump that stimulate nerves in the arm. These bursts simulate nerve pulses, thus triggering a pain or touch response in the brain. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
