1997). Stealth technologies for UGVs are also at high risk. The linear swarm is modeled as a set of linear equations that are solved iteratively. Pedestrian detection remains a problem. Available communications bandwidth also depends on the mission, with more covert missions having less bandwidth. They considered a box-pushing task and utilized a subsumption approach (Brooks and Flynn, 1989; Brooks, 1986), as well as ALN (adaptive logic networks). Low Difficulty/Low Risk—Single short-duration technological approach needed to be assured of a high probability of success, Medium Difficulty/Medium Risk—Optimum technical approach not clearly defined; one or more technical approaches possible that must be explored to be assured of a high probability of success. It will generally use a variety of independent means such as an IMU (inertial measurement unit), GPS (global positioning system), and odometry with estimates from all combined by a Kalman filter or something similar. It describes the state of the art and estimates the levels of technology readiness. SOURCE: Feddema et al. MyNAP members SAVE 10% off online. Tree lines and overhangs have been reliably detected but only at ranges less than 100 meters. The technology readiness level of basic leader-follower cooperative behavior, such as might be exhibited by the Donkey and Wingman examples, is already TRL 6, but cooperative robot behavior, such as needed by the Hunter-Killer is still in a state of infancy. BOX 4-8 Task Statement Question 4.c Autonomous Behavior Technologies. mies 1. The decentralized localization problem is examined by Roumeliotis and Bekey (2000) and Bozorg et al. A rock or tree when viewed from one angle looks completely different from a rock or tree when viewed from another angle. The more impersonal presence is tied to openness and space. Desai et al. Assigning a TRL value to this fusion of navigation, perception, path planning, and communications is difficult, but a reasonable guess is TRL 1 or 2. Updating the vehicle path is currently performed at 4 Hz using a 300-MHz Motorola G3 processor. The maturation of the brain and gender-specific role taking are two main factors of becoming adult. In the 18 years since the beginning of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Autonomous Land Vehicle (ALV) program, there has been significant progress in the canonical areas of perception for UGVs: road-following, obstacle detection and avoidance (both on-road and off), and terrain classification and traversability analysis for off-road mobility. The technology readiness level of multiple UGV and UAV path planning is currently TRL 3 for multiple UGVs and TRL 1 for multiple UGVs and UAVs. More recently researchers have begun to take a system controls perspective and analyze the stability of multiple vehicles when driving in formations. SDT focuses on the degree to which an individual's behavior is self-motivated and self-determined. The Hunter-Killer will also probably use GPS/INS (or another beacon navigation system combined with a relative navigation system) as its primary navigation system. Neural networks are already used in optical character recognition and handwriting recognition. If cornered and faced with imminent destruction, it is possible that an appropriate tactical behavior for a robot might be to self-destruct. Capabilities developed for off-road obstacle detection are applicable to the on-road problem but have been demonstrated only at low speed. Actual application of the technology in its final form and under mission conditions, such as those encountered in operational, test and evaluation. Sign up for email notifications and we'll let you know about new publications in your areas of interest when they're released. Classify terrain and adapt speed, control regime. A variety of specialized classifiers or feature detectors are required to provide accurate and rapid feature detection and classification. Like the Wingman, the Hunter-Killer will also have automatic, lethal, direct fire capabilities. The Planning subsystem is a hierarchy of modules: the Mission Planner decides B is the destination; the Navigator does global A to B path planning based on an a priori map and other data; the Pilot does moment-to-moment trajectory planning. Self-preservation and defensive maneuvers. The fastest, most efficient algorithms should be used whenever possible. The Perception subsystem takes data from sensors and develops a representation of the world around the UGV, called a world map, sufficient for taking those actions necessary for the UGV to achieve its goals. The estimates are highly aggregated judgments of performance across a variety of situations: On-road: Includes performance on structured and unstructured roads from those designed to standards and are well marked to barely perceptible dirt tracks. Despite impressive demonstrations today’s automated systems remain many orders of magnitude below human driving performance under a realistic range of challenging driving conditions. How the UGV recognizes that it is lost and what the behavior should be when the UGV knows it is lost needs to be defined. Utilization of detailed terrain maps combined with GPS/INS has also been attempted, but GPS/INS position errors along with the need to update terrain maps as rapidly fluctuating conditions warrant have been stumbling points. In these cases the first two approaches must be used to drive the vehicle away from the local minimum. However, the environment is often only partially known, and as obstacles are discovered they must be entered into the map and the path must be replanned. FIGURE 4-5 User interface for perimeter surveillance. Also of importance is the recent research combining graph theory with decentralized controls. Although some simple cooperative control strategies have been demonstrated at universities and at the national laboratories, the design of cooperative behaviors is still not understood. Distinguish friendly and enemy combat vehicles. The vehicles closest to the intrusion attend to the alarm, while the others adjust their position around the perimeter to prepare for other possible alarms. Yibing Li, in Advances in Child Development and Behavior, 2011. Answer: Operational requirements are not clearly defined, and the technological base has consisted of diffuse developments across multiple potential missions. Integration of absolute navigation system (i.e., GPS) with sensor information (perception) and map information to determine a more accurate position. As they also focus on narratives and archetypes, we see the promise of social-emotional benefits of VGs. View our suggested citation for this chapter. Algorithms and processing fast enough to support 120 km/h (road following, avoidance of moving and static obstacles). Obstacle avoidance requires detection of stopped vehicles, pedestrians, and static objects. This cell decomposition may be exact or approximated by a prespecified geometric shape, typically a square. Figure 4-3 illustrates the different demands that might be placed on a UGV perception system. Full autonomous navigation for all conditions is probably not feasible, especially in the near future. The larger set of tactical behaviors is being addressed in modeling and simulation technology development efforts in support of developing more realistic behaviors of entities within simulations (Toth, 2002). In the next section the reader will notice that graph theory is also used in this paper to evaluate the controllability and observability of the system. Detect and avoid static obstacles (positive and negative) at 40 km/h day or night. Vasco Reis, Rosário Macário, in Intermodal Freight Transportation, 2019. There are significant gaps in road-following capability and performance characterization particularly for the urban environment, for unstructured roads, and under all-weather conditions. The decision-making function may require inputs from other agents. A hierarchy of path-planning algorithms should be employed. Day and night performance should be essentially equivalent, but more testing is required. The Demo II and III projects demonstrated a simple follow-the-leader cooperative behavior where the lead vehicle records GPS waypoints as it moves to a goal, and then transmits the GPS waypoints to the following vehicle, which then traverses the same path. More generally the issue is how to provide performance evaluation functions so the system can self-assess its performance. The budget requirements necessary to bring cooperative behaviors for multiple UGVs and UAVs up to a TRL 6 could be several million dollars, and the time horizon could be 10 to 15 years away. gAt about this speed or greater, active vision required. Table 4-1 summarizes the basic criteria for TRL estimates. The analogous application for UGVs is to infer high-level information from sensor data. Concepts available that can be implemented in software and limited evaluation initiated under controlled conditions. Cooperation between vehicle and roadway systems and between individual vehicles has been emphasized in this research in order to enable higher performance of the vehicle control systems and to reduce their vulnerability to sensor imperfections. Additional details relating to perception for autonomous mobility are contained in Appendix C. FIGURE 4-1 Areas of technology needed for UGVs. The vehicle moves along one of a finite set of routes. Best approach identified. The final component in an agent-based model is the environment. This includes analytical studies and laboratory studies to physically validate analytical predictions of separate elements of the technology. Researchers and theorists are increasing their understanding of games and their relationships with reality and other virtual worlds. Physical security is another consideration. 16, No. In perception, for example, learning is used extensively in feature classifiers (i.e., to classify regions as road or non-road or for terrain classification) (see Appendix C). The next component in an agent-based model covers the interactions. (2000). Tactical behaviors may need to be modified by the mission or by the influence of cultural, political, or economic concerns. The individual feels autonomous, having personal strength, maturity, and a capacity for social interaction. This process, which generally occurs through several layers of cooperative behavior, leaves the system in a state that can be related to the input that created it. Integration risk is high. The third approach is a potential field method where the direction and speed of motion are specified by the gradient of a potential field function that is minimized when the vehicle reaches the goal point. An environment is dynamic in nature when it possesses two properties. Fig. Plan for complex missions including combat survival. a greater reliance upon communications. Social psychology examines how people affect one another, and it looks at the power of the situation. The foregoing provides the basis for the answer to Task Statement Question 4.b as it pertains to tactical behaviors. These databases can be stored on board the UGV or very recent databases can be downloaded by means of communication links. Three maximum speeds were specified: 40 km/h, 100 km/h, and 120 km/h. On-road obstacle detection (other vehicles and static objects) is much less developed than lane tracking.
