Abstract:

Many military applications will benefit from the use of unmanned vehicles. However communication realities have limited the effectiveness of the current direct tele-operated vehicles. One solution is to increase the on-board autonomy of the vehicle. While this does reduce the communication requirements, the level of machine intelligence is not sufficient to insure operation in extreme situations. Proposed is a shared control solution that is a synergistic partnership of on-board autonomy and the superior cognitive capabilities of the remote human operator. This paper describes work at the Defence Research and Development Canada - Suffield DRDC-Suffield in tele-operated vehicles, autonomous control systems and discusses the issues and benefits of shared control of military vehicles.
