The Autonomous Ground Vehicle will be part of the future combat force to carry out tasks that would otherwise be difficult for a conventional manned vehicle. These autonomous robots are innovative and cost-effective situational awareness systems that serve and protect military, law robots will be part of the Low Intensity Conflict / Explosive Ordinance Disposal (LIC/EOD) program and Homeland Security to carry out tasks into a variety of undesirable, hazardous, and potentially life-threatening environments in stealth and NBC threats.

Sensing and interpretation of the terrain and environment are the most challenging tasks. Generation of terrain profile, detection of positive and negative obstacles, lethal drop off, safe down slope, pothole, waterhole, Geometric profile, penetrability and compressibility are to be understood for autonomous navigation. The technologies for the autonomous navigation is vehicle control
