Abstract:

To ensure the capability of defence, a demand for equipment and systems which can be embraced under the title of Robotics will emerge in the near future. In this context, Robotics represents a specific problem area involving all the guidance and control functions which are associated with achieving goal-oriented autonomous behaviour in structured and unstructured environments for mobile and manipulator systems as applied to ground, sea, air and space operations. Related robotic systems must combine constituent functions such as intelligent decision making, control, manipulation, motion, sensing and communication. The scope of the special course will cover new developments in the areas of autonomous navigation for planetary and surface systems, and control and operations of remote manipulators. Topics to be covered include Kinematics, dynamics and mobility Sensing vision, tactile, acoustic, etc. and sensory processing Sensory interactive task decomposition, planning and problem solving World modelling Programming techniques and learning, cognitive control, adaptive sensory-motor control System integration, test and evaluation Man-machine interfaces. This Lecture Series was sponsored by the Guidance and Control Panel and the Consultant and Exchange Programme of AGARD.
