Hands-Free and Heads-Up Control of Unmanned Ground Vehicles
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Think-A-Move (TAM) will develop a heads-up, hands-free speech command control system for UGVs. Also, TAM, in conjunction with Autonomous Solutions, will develop and implement appropriate autonomous behaviors and video servoing capabilities. And, TAM will develop a plan to review the human-factors of different COTS video display systems. This proposal addresses two critical challenges of current Unmanned Ground Vehicle Operator Control Units: Reduced Operator Situational Awareness because of the need to focus on the display screen, and that with current systems, the Operator does not contribute to the firing power of an Infantry Squad when operating a UGV because UGV operations require two hands.
