Adventium Labs and Primordial today announced that they have reached a milestone in their ongoing two-year DARPA-funded research effort to develop the next generation of route planning technology. Led by Adventium, the team met their Year 1 milestone to demonstrate a prototype system that uses the experience gathered from routes that people actually follow (as opposed to the routes generated by the computer) to automatically improve the quality of route plans provided.
Adventium is proud to sponsor the 2012 Cyber Security Summit in Minneapolis, Minnesota, running October 9th through the 10th. Cyber Security is critical to regional economic resiliency and to National critical infrastructure. The summit will bring together leaders from government, business, and non-profit sectors for collaboration on the issues of cyber security and for the conception of new, innovative counter measures against cyber threats.
Robotics Alley is designed to raise the profile of the central United States in the global robotics industry. Adventium is among these companies working on some of the most innovative and promising robotics projects. For example, Adventium's MiCART technology allows a robotics control system to robustly share computing resources with less critical software systems operating on the robot.

Based on work resulting from a NASA SBIR, Adventium was issued a patent today titled "Inferring System-level Properties", patent #8,195,599. This technology has played a big role in several of our programs, most recently on our FUSED effort, one of DARPA's Adaptive Vehicle Make programs.
Adventium is proud to sponsor and participate in the the upcoming MinneWIC conference on February 24-25, 2012. MinneWIC is a regional celebration of Women in Computing in the upper midwest. This regional meeting, modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women inComputing, will bring together students (high school and college), faculty, and technology leaders from across Minnesota and neighboring states to discuss the role of women in today's computing and technology fields, share experiences and strategies for success, and explore issues common to women working in these fields.
The Bakken has published a very nice and well deserved profile of Dr. August Schwerdfeger, one of Adventium's scientists. It describes his dedication to mentoring students in the Bakken's invention programs and the impact he has had there. See http://thebakken.org/node/104 for the full article.
Adventium is proud to announce that it is a sponsor of Robotic Alley™, scheduled for November 17, 2011. Robotics is on the cusp of a global revolution in defense, security, agriculture, medicine, and industry! At Robotics Alley, participants will learn how robotics research and commercialization opportunities are saving lives around the world-- and creating jobs in America's heartland.

Adventium Enterprises, a Minneapolis‐based software research and development company, announced that it has been awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to develop iNeuron™, an interactive game‐like approach to teaching neuroscience and mental health concepts at the classroom level and beyond. iNeuron will teach key concepts by transforming a set of handheld electronic devices into functionally connected neurons to solve sets of story‐based, neuroscience challenges.
Technology developed by Adventium on a Small Business Innovation Research project was featured by the U.S. Air Force as a transition success. This technology allocates cyber defenses to huge networks while making sure that mission requirements are satisfied during deployment and operations. The Cybercraft Architecture Reasoner Inferring Network and Application Environments (CARINAE) technology provides bandwidth, memory, and computational performance assessments for large networks supporting diverse operational missions and defensive applications.
