Integrating autonomous machines in the spaces they share with each other – and with humans

Both civilian and non-civilian sectors have been energized by the potential of autonomous machines to transform operational practices. As autonomous machines leave the prototyping stage and begin to be integrated into mainstream operations, this transition has resulted in new and complex challenges. Noblis’ Autonomous Systems Research Center develops systems that allow autonomous machines to advance from single-purpose, isolated actors into scalable, self-organizing solutions.

Our Offerings

Our work helps build the capacity of systems of machines to act with greater degrees of independence. Building upon higher-level system objectives set by human controllers, machines can adapt to events in their environment without direct human intervention.

Humans will increasingly share space with autonomous machines. Noblis is designing ways to capture those encounters in a system of increasing trust, ensuring that interactions happen within expected parameters, reducing unnecessary negotiation and building in safety for all.

Noblis is building technologies that orchestrate the motions and actions of unfamiliar, connected and autonomous machines, making systems safer, more productive and more equitable. This interoperability permits a level of coordinated action that otherwise would be impossible without advance knowledge of all the localized actions. Learn more about our award-winning concept.

Noblis has developed a patented approach for the systematic management of earned trust based on repeatable, episodic encounters where machines must coordinate movements and actions, secured by a decentralized distributed ledger solution. The Noblis solution offers improved safety, efficiency and cybersecurity.
