Abstract : The technologies needed for autonomous unmanned ground vehicles are developing at a rapid pace, driven by many diverse applications. The purpose of this study is to document the state of development of these technologies in the following technical areas: sensors, perception algorithms, cognitive algorithms, and computational hardware that can enable the fielding of practical autonomous systems for land warfare. Ongoing research programs are described, and estimated dates of availability of technologies required for various levels of capability in autonomous unmanned vehicles are presented. Autonomous Navigation, TUGV, UGV, Unmanned Ground Vehicles.
