Abstract:

This thesis develops a prototype rule based command and control system for units of autonomous tactical vehicles. By applying artificial intelligence techniques, tactical coordination of multiple autonomous land vehicles is also accomplished. This study identifies the requirements for such a system and provides a prototype system with a sophisticated computer graphics simulator as a testing facility for future follow on research. This study was a joint research project. Andrew H. Nelson was responsible for the rule system modeling on the LISP machines and Corinne McConkle was responsible for the real time graphics motion visualization on the IRIS workstation. The networking software was developed jointly. Keywords Autonomous vehicle Artificial intelligence Computer simulations Rule based systems Robotics Ground vehicles Autonomous navigation.
