Abstract:

Teleoperated robotic systems are characterized by a lack of situational awareness, and the effects of delays and poor communications. Control of Samll Unmanned Ground Vehicles SUGVs in cluttered environments requires fine control of the platform to avoid obstacles, and align the platforms with doorways or stairways. On larger UGVs, speed is normally paramount for mission success, and communications delays can cause control instabilities that often result in into overturned or damaged vehicles. During Phase I, a prototype system that compensates for delays in the exchange of video and command data between the remote platform and the Soldier Machine Interface will be developed. The system will generate a driving image on the SMI that is compensated for vehicle motion and communication delay.
