Intelligent Robotics Group (IRG) is a division of the Ames Research Center,[1] located at Moffett Federal Airfield in California's Silicon Valley.


The 2009 Director of the Intelligent Robotics Group Terry Fong stated in an interview that

IRG conducts applied research in a wide range of areas, including computer vision, geospatial data systems, human-robot interaction, interactive 3-D visualization and robot software architecture. In 2009, we co-developed "Mars in Google Earth" and "Moon in Google Earth" with Google; we remotely operated one of our K10 planetary rovers to scout portions of Black Point Lava Flow (in Arizona); and we used our GigaPan robotic camera for science, education and journalism."[2]
The Intelligent Robotics Group (IRG) explores extreme environments, remote locations, and uncharted worlds [and] conduct[s] applied research in computer vision, geospatial data systems, human-robot interaction, planetary mapping and robot software.
