Overview
In the CyberScout project, we are developing mobile robotic technologies that will extend the sphere of awareness and mobility of small military units while exploring issues of command and control, task decomposition, multi-agent collaboration, efficient perception algorithms, and sensor fusion. As one of the multiple platforms within CyberScout, we have developed two Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) (named Lewis and Clark, after the famous explorers) by retrofitting two Polaris all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), automating their throttle, steering, braking, and gearing functions and giving them computation for control, navigation, sensing, and communication.
