AbstractThe objective of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative intelligent autonomous mission planner/controller for networked multiple manned/unmanned autonomous vehicles which is applicable to the Future Combat System (FCS), Future Force Warrior (FFW), and Future SOF systems. The intelligent multi-vehicle autonomous mission planner/controller includes navigation, obstacle detection and avoidance, waypoint tasking planner, mission trajectory planner, and vehicle formation control. The navigation subsystem is implemented by fusion of the AGNC coremicro AHRS/INS/GPS Integration Unit, monocular/stereo vision, Doppler radar, odometer, etc. Obstacle detection and avoidance is based on the object detection systems (using ultrasonic sensor, laser radar, and vision) and wireless ad hoc communication networks. A Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS)-compliant intelligent autonomous control system for networked robotic vehicles will be designed and demonstrated.
