Nancy Ott of CMU's National Robotics Engineering Center writes, "Here's the latest on the DARPA UPI program's Crusher robot (including pictures and video). Crusher is coming off a round of field tests at Ft. Bliss, TX, where it planned and executed missions designed by ordinary soldiers" The autonomous 6 wheeled Crusher robot is part of DARPA's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. The current field test are based on NERC's UGCV PerceptOR Integration (UPI) program which combined the original Crusher UGCV robot with the PerceptOR autonomous perception and navigation system.
