STUDENT ROBOT COMPETITION DRIVING INNOVATION: STUDENT ROBOT COMPETITION Military Racing Challenge - Autonomous Ground Vehicle for Low Intensity Conflict FAQ I ntroduction 1. 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 enforcement and security professionals engaged in low-intensity conflict and anti-terrorism activities in urban & unstructured environments. These 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. In order to navigate autonomously, the vehicle must be mounted with sensors for evaluating the terrain and have software for interpreting the data, path planning to decide a safe course of action, and control to oversee that plan. 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 multidisciplinary which includes kinematics, Real time perception system, Multi sensors data fusion, Localization & Path planning and Robust vehicle control 2. The tasks that could be given to such a vehicle would be:- (a) Operation in contaminated environments.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
