Abstract : The U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories (ETL) is participating in the development of a battlefield robotic platform, with a recon sensor suite payload, that will be teleoperated from a remotely located control van via RF communication link(s). A major component of the system is a sophisticated terrain navigation subsystem, to be later evolved from a teleoperation to an autonomous operation capability. The system will demonstrate an application of AI/Robotics for meeting future Army needs. (Author)
